Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Pleasing The Man

In marriage dressing matters alot especially when it comes to women because they have to dress to impress their husbands. This idea was something that my sister Melinda never got right and this made her husband get bored with her such that he preferred walking with other women than walking with Melinda something that greatly hurt Melinda. When she came to me, I got the idea into her mind and she had to stop dressing like a nun and adopt to dress according to fashion since she was still a youngman of twenty seven years. The moment she got the concept, she was so much beautiful that everytime her husband went out, he would request her to accompany her.
