What is wrong with my brother?

This is from a DOCIA'S NEST (DN) reader:

My older brother got separated from his wife two years ago and decided to live with his two sons (8 years and 6 years) whiles his wife lives with the only daughter (4 years). Even though he remits them VERY REGULARLY, there are no signs of his wife coming back into the marriage. Even though he cooks very well, he decided to go in for another lady to run the home for him whiles he concentrates on his business. The second lady who is now cohabiting with my brother does virtually EVERYTHING in the home - cooking, washing, scrabbing, in fact everything.
One day I sat my brother down and advised him to customarily marry the second lady since his wife has no intention of coming back. To my dismay my brother said he will never make such a mistake of marrying her, in fact HE HAS NEVER DREAMT of and does not even dream of marrying her, all that he needs is someone to run his home for him and also sleep with. This has been going on for almost two years now.
My brother's reason for keeping her is that she has brought GOOD LUCK into his business because ever since she came into his life, his business has boomed. I am totally confused about my brother's behaviour that sometimes I am tempted to tell the lady the truth.
They stay in the same compound with our parents but they are in a different apartment. Due to my brother's delay in paying her dowry she has started treating my parents with total disrespect throwing insults here and there, she sometimes even pick quarrels with my older sister.

I am totally confused and don't know what to do to help the situation. What do you think is wrong with my brother?


Shalom!

  1. The brother is totally selfish and unfair to this lady. Why waste her time when he knows he cannot marry her. The lady also needs to examine her head and move on rather than disrespect the parents of the man.

    Sigh, some men are just wicked and selfish.

    1. Lara don't just jump into conclusion about the guy's behaviour, if the lady is also not selfish she wouldn't be living with someone who has not paid her dowry.

    1. To me I will advice the parents send the girl packing from the house, cos very soon she will be creating enmity between the guy and his family.

  3. The guy is an animal, I suggest the concerned lady tells her brother's girlfriend the truth.

  4. Please isn't this too strong a word to use on the guy? nevertheless, do you think telling the lady the truth about the guy's plan solve the problem?
