Between side chicks and wives

Sometimes when I hear the cliche, women being their own worst enemy, the more I try to defend that there are great and exceptional women, the more I’m forced to step back and re-examine myself. I have come across some many women who just wouldn’t turn a new coat, no matter what. So, I was at a party hosted by a few weeks back. It was the burial of Molade’s mother-in-law. The party had been the talk of the moment amongst many of our close friends, promising to be loaded with an A list guest attendance, A top musical act on the band stand and choice foods from all kinds on vendors for the catering. Mama had been a successful fabric merchant during her life time and all her six children, five boys and a girl have turned out equally successful in their callings too. Niyi, my friend’s husband, the youngest son and last born, was also no doubt his mother’s favourite. He was determined to give his mother the best exit party anyone could, same for his older siblings. So, it was not the party to miss by Naija standards if you know what I mean. And truly, no one was disappointed. Mama’s children, grandchildren and great grandchildren came in from all the corners of the world to pay their last respect, and they left nothing to chance to ensure that guests had a great time. But for a small hitch that left a very sour taste in my mouth and one that I have not been able to shake off ever since, I probably would have ticked this party off as the best I’ve attended so far this year.

In love with my lover’s half brother

When I met my current boyfriend, he never mentioned anything about having a half-brother. We’d been together for about a year when he introduced him to me at a social gathering. It was a bit of a shock and even more shocking was the immediate attraction between us. It was obvious he felt it too, because as soon as we were alone, he gave me his phone number. He called me the next day and we agreed to meet up. When we did, he took me to his place and we’ve since started an affair. I knew it was wrong, I just felt powerless to stop it. I’ve fallen for him, but I also have strong feelings for my boyfriend. What do I do to make the right choice?
