Felicia Idris, a Nigeria lady has revealed a painful story of her growing up in a polygamous home.
The young woman took her Facebook page to share some counsel based on her painful experience and to describe living in a polygamous home as “hell.”
She claims that as a result of her painful experience, she will never make friends with anyone who has a second wife. She described how her second wife cruelly mistreated her, as well as her siblings. She continued by saying that a polygamous home is ugly and causes division.
“POLYGAMOUS HOME IS WHAT I FEAR MOST. I grew up in a polygamy family where life was like a hell for me then I prayed that may I live never to have anything to do with a polygamist and never to be friends with a woman who is a second wife just because of my experience as a daughter of a first wife who was maltreated alongside her sons and daughters. There was no fair treatment in the family where I grew up I promised myself so many things than in which love of Christ has helped shaped away,” she narrated.
“Come to think of it polygamy from the beginning has always not brought or added any beauty to the home if not pain and disunity.
Let’s see from the bible Abraham, Sarah, and Hagai are people of faith that we look up to but, they were not able to handle the pressure of polygamy.
Also, Jacob was privileged to get married to the daughter of the same father and same mother but, his family was a place of competition, quarrel, and jealousy when Leah will always feel left out by their husband’s love, giving out their slave girls to their husband to sleep with in other to see who have more children.
“If not for God’s intervention his generation will have lost it when his sons almost kill Joseph who was to later be their savior in times of famine so many things related to a polygamy lifestyle that I don’t wish my worst enemy to be involved in it.
“My advice to young men and women that are yet to marry do everything possible in your part to avoid the polygamy lifestyle.”
