Dear Aunty Aurora,
My name is Sophia. I am a young lady of 23 just out of school and trying to secure a job. Recently, I met a man who offered to help me get a job and support me financially till I start earning something. Unfortunately, I found out that he is married to one of my elder sister’s friends and he has kids as well. I really don’t want to be the cause of marital issues in his home but I really need this man’s help. Should I damn the consequences and just take what he is willing to offer?
As much as it would be very easy for me to go sanctimonious on you and lecture you about the dangers of going after another woman’s man, I think its better you figure some things out on your own with just a little guidance. Sweetheart, you don’t need anyone telling if its wrong or right, you know what you should do. I will only tell you to not make your decision based on what you are going through right now.
This phase will pass, you will get a job, make some money all by yourself without some man’s ‘help.’ By then you will realise how much more you are worth than being someone’s side chick or the lady who has to hide.
