la polygamie

Il y avait une famille dont le père avait deux femmes la première était la mère de Julie elle était très obeissante à son mari, la deuxième était la mère de Jeannine elle était très impolie en plus elle était une sorcière et leur père aimait la mère de jeannine la seconde femme, que la mère de Julie.
Julie était très belle et très intelligente que jeannine et leur père aimait Jeannine plus que Julie.

Julie disait:papa à l'école on nous a dit de payer 25$ pour le syllabus.Papa repondu je n'ai pas d'argent débruille- toi.
Lorsque Jeannine vient demandr l'argent à son père, Jeannine dit: papa à l'école on nous en demandé 50$ pour le syllabus oh!ma filleDit ce papa injuste. C'est n'est pas un grand problème prends l'argent. le lendemain Julie aussi va à l'école aurevoir papa. il ne repond rien en arriva à l'école sa petite soeur était déjà arrivée entrain de critiquer sa soeur, Julie bonjour les filles,les filles bonjour.
Julie était en 5em des humanités et sa soeur éteait en 3em des humanités en suite le directeur des études passe dans toute les classes entrain de chasser les élèves qui n'avaient pas encore payé.
Le mariage polygamique constitue une méthode de discrimination entre les enfants d'un meme père et des mères différentes;
A mon avis je decouragerais les filles qui voudraient contacter un tel mariage

Polygamy

There was a family in which the father had two wives. The first was Julie’s mother. She obeyed her husband. The second was Jeannine’s mother. She was very impolite; what’s more, she was a sorceress and their father loved Jeannine’s mother, the second wife, more than Julie’s mother.

Julie was more beautiful and intelligent than Jeannine, but their father loved Jeannine more than Julie.

Julie told her father, “Dad, at school they told us to pay $25 for the syllabus.” Her father replied, “I don't have money, go away.”

When Jeannine came to ask her father for money, she said, “Dad, at school they told us to pay $50 for the syllabus, oh!”

“My daughter,” said the unjust father, “It’s not a big deal, take the money.”

The next day Julie bid goodbye to her father on her way to school. He didn't say anything in response. Upon arriving to school, her sister was already there and had started criticizing her. Julie said hello to her classmates and they said hello back.

Julie was in 7th grade studying the humanities track and her sister was also studying humanities in the 9th grade. Next, the principal of humanities passed through all the classes to catch the students who still hadn't paid their school fees.

Polygamous marriages constitute a method of discrimination between children who share a father but have different mothers. In my opinion, I would discourage girls who want to pursue such a marriage.
