My wife wants me to die


December 23, 2016

Dear Pastor,

I have been married for more than 20 years and I am having problems. I am having a hard time with my wife. She is having an affair with a young boy. I had to run from my house because I did not want to get into a fight with her.

I used to fret and worry over my situation until I got a stroke. I am now at home starving, while my wife is supporting the young man out of our investments. She says that she is going to obeah me and kill me.

I am having life very hard. We are still married. I don't know what to do. Right now, I am very hungry.


Dear W.,

I regret hearing that you are not well and that you are hungry. I know the area where you say you are living. The people in that area are very helpful. If they know that you were hungry, they would surely assist you and bring you food. My understanding from you is that you attend a certain church. You should make the pastor aware that you are hungry.

It is unfortunate that your wife is having an affair with a younger man and supporting him with proceeds from your investments. You belong to a certain church that I have not mentioned. You should let the minister know what you are going through. I am sure that he and the members of the church, especially the brotherhood, would help you. You do not need just food. You need medical attention.

I do not expect your wife to assist you because both of you are now separated and, according to your letter, her desire is that you would die.

Even if you were a bad man and did not treat your wife well, and as a result she found another man, you need help. And the brothers and sisters in your church should rally around you. After you have spoken to your minister, you should let me know if your situation has improved.
