I'd love to hear people's experiences of the moment you took off the love glasses, listened to the gut instincts and called them on the bullshit. It's hard to believe the family is in on it but they are because it's still semi tribal there and keeping it in the family is considered to be OK. That's fair enough, whatever floats your boat. Keeping the lineage, land and house is the reason for this. Someone mentioned that they see us as donkeys and I would tend to agree, look at how they are treated by some. Donkeys are strong but gentle creatures. They carry the load,they are fighters,intelligent and strong. They keep going and serving with no complaint. They are amazing. Actually the history between donkey and man is extremely interesting and worth the read.
