LES CAUSES DU DIVORCE DANS MA FAMILLE

J’ai un oncle qui s’est marié à une fille qui habite dans notre quartier mon oncle travaille à la MONUSCO.
Mon oncle avait beaucoup d’argent quand il a rencontré cette fille. Ils étaient très heureux au début car ils venaient d’avoir 5 enfants dans leur couple. Mais lorsqu’ on a suspendu mon oncle au travail sa femme a commencé à manquer du respect à mon oncle mais mon oncle ne disait rien. Quelque mois plus tard, mon oncle a commencé à écouter des rumeurs sur la méconduite et l’infidélité de sa femme. Il a commencé à suivre ces rumeurs et voici qu’un certaine dimanche mon oncle avait dit à sa femme qu’il partait au village pour visiter sa mère c’est-à-dire ma grand-mère. Pourtant il était allé loger à l’hôtel. Quand sa femme a vu que son mari était parti, elle s’était sentie enfin libre. Elle était sortie avec son copain vers un hôtel de la place. Lorsque les voisins l’avaient constaté, ils avaient directement communiqué à mon oncle qui était dans un autre hôtel. L’oncle est venu se renseigner à la réception et tout a été bien confirmé. Ayant appris cela, l’oncle était allé s’assoir en diagonal de la porte d’hôtel où sa femme et son copain étaient. A leur sortie, ils les avaient vus s sans rien dire. Le soir il avait convoqué les deux familles pour déclarer le divorce avec sa femme. Les procès au tribunal n’avaient durés que 10mois et déjà il avait obtenu l’acte de divorce.
En conclusion, chez nous, les causes de divorce sont souvent :l’infidélité conjugale de la femme et l’attachement aux matériels.

THE CAUSES OF DIVORCE IN MY FAMILY

I have an uncle who is married to a girl who lives in our neighbourhood, my uncle works at MONUSCO. My uncle had a lot of money when he met this girl. They were very happy at first, for they came to have five children in their relationship. But when my uncle got fired from work, his wife started to lose respect for my uncle but my uncle never said anything. Several months later, my uncle started to listen to rumours on the misconduct and infidelity of his wife. He started to follow these rumours and behold, a certain Sunday my uncle had said to his wife that he was leaving to the village to visit his mother (that is to say, my grandmother). However, he had lodged in a hotel.
When his wife saw that her husband had left, she finally felt free. She had left with her lover toward a hotel of the square. When the neighbours found her, they were directly communicating to my uncle, who was in another hotel. The uncle came to check out at the reception and all had been well confirmed. Having learnt that, the uncle had gone to sit down diagonally from the door of the hotel where his wife and lover were. At their departure, they saw him with nothing to say. The night, it had convoked to them the two families by declaring the divorce with his wife. The process to the tribunal had only lasted ten months and already he had obtained the act of divorce.
In conclusion, in our home, the causes of divorce are often: conjugal infidelity of the wife and attachment to materials.

Histoire Vraie!.

Merci Sylva pour avoir partagé cette histoire vraie avec nous.
C'est vraiment triste de voir qu'il y a des gens qui continuent a s'aimer par interet. A part cela les deux personnes qui s'aiment doivent se supporter dans l'abondance comme dans la pauvreté; mais ce que nous voyons c'est toujours le contraire.
Qu' à cela ne tienne, je pense que nous pouvons changer les choses si nous osons.
Courage, vous faites du bon travail.

Sylvia, vous êtes une conteuse excellent - ceci est une histoire très douloureuse et vous montrez toutes les événements, et les conséquences dans une manière très captivant et concise. Je suis triste que votre oncle doit faire face à la difficulté de l'infidélité et de divorce. Il semble que vous et votre famille pouvez prendre soin bien de lui. J'espère qu'il peut trouver une femme qui l'aime pour soi-même, au lieu de sa richesse.
