The story of my friend

I had a friend who said she would become a nun but she loved to spend time with boys. I told her that she couldn't go to the convent and frequent boys at the same time but my friend would not take the advice I gave her. One day she went to school and I met her on the road with one of her friends, who told me that he would woo me. But my friend got jealous and she did not want me to befriend this guy. She would always tell me that she promised God to go to the convent. Six months later, her friend went to look for her at the convent and the girl still liked him. After a couple of days, the girl was impregnated; she was sent back by the convent. A big problem was that her husband did not actually love her; she regretted her youth saying if only I knew. As a step towards a solution, one should never promise someone without achieving one's goal. For my friend promised God that she would go to the convent but she never respected her promises. And one should take the advice we give; if my friend had done what I told her, there could have never been evil in her life. Thanks

merci pour cette histoire. Je crois que l'éducation pourrait offrir des occasions d'enseigner les jeunes femmes sur les conséquences de leur action. plus d'attention devrait être accordée à ce problème afin de trouver une solution
