The Marital Training
‘‘Ah, you are at it again,’’ her husband yelled.
‘‘Why do you always tell me I don’t do any chores at home?’’ Mercy’s mother yelled back at her father on the phone.
She sat on the sofa, watching her mother through the kitchen door but pretending to be watching the smart television.
Nevertheless, her ears were attentive to their conservation.
Her parents have been quarreling for years with her mother always complaining that her dad does not give her the respect she deserves.
Meanwhile, her dad, as always has been complaining about she being a lazy woman like the basketball wife-type of a woman.
Even though she thought that her dad was a bit harsh for yelling at her mother, she obviously felt her dad was right for the obvious description-her mom will not wash or do the laundry, nor bath her little brother, nor even cook in the house; she will always go for shopping, spend dad’s money on perfume and clothes.
She always counted on the maid to do that for her, while she’ll mostly be on Instagram sharing pictures.
Bella, had always wondered what will lead to a better marriage.
Then she adviced herself that if that ‘casual way’ was the way of being a wife, then she would have to take her chores and responsibilities seriously; yes, even as a young girl and should learn all that she needed to know. This includes how to manage a house with or without a man to avoid future marital problems, lest her future turn out to be what she’s enduring in her home right now.
So, even though she knew her mother obviously wouldn’t allow it, almost for the first time in 16 years she told her favourite maidservant, Rosy, to invite her in, whenever she was undertaking those chores so that she can learn.
However, Mrs. Rosy, to avoid any problem, had explained to Mercy that she’ll will take her through these home classes when mum was away.
So, she told her;
‘‘Mercy, I know you’ve taken a great course, because I’m 55 years and one thing I know is that, all we do in marriage comes from all that we do in our mum and dad’s house.”
”Well, that’s how God planned our marital training from the beginning,’’ she told her.
”So, I can tell that, probably all that your mother is going through now is as a result of all that she couldn’t learn at home; well, these are the same ABC things your husband in the future home will require from you.’’
”Yes mum,’’ she agreed.
‘‘She was going to pass that bad training to you too, so she tells you not to handle or touch anything, in the house.’’
‘‘Well, can we start these trainings tomorrow?’’ Mercy asked the supportive married old lady.
‘‘Yes, we will!’’ she answered with a pat on the girl’s back, while smiling happily at her new little female student.
She knew that she was on her way to a perfect and great marriage.
And indeed, she was.
