My hubby insists I operate from his family home as I prepare to travel home for the funeral rites of one of my parents. My marital home is a good 40 minutes from my village, plus my siblings and I have not been together under one roof for at least two decades. His reasoning is that I need to be accompanied by my in-laws as I proceed for the funeral. Meanwhile when his parent passed recently, all his married sisters and their husbands operated from my hubby's family house. When I noted that fact today, it resulted in an argument as he kept insisting the situations are different. I don't get the difference. I don't have the energy to waste on this when I should be grieving. Here we are arguing about my movement in Nigeria, meanwhile we are yet to send money to help out with funeral plans even after I have broached the topic severally. Something about this situation bothers me seriously. Oh well, na my palava right now.
