A Stubborn Woman

ONE SUNDAY AFTERNOON AFTER THE SERVICE WHEN we come out of the church, we found a crowd of people.We rushed to find out that what was truly going on, in shock we found one woman crying in the floor full of blood she was bleeding very quickly and badly. People remembered that she were fighting with her husband. The husband made an agreement between the two wives he takes three days in each of their houses. What brings the problems is that the other wife was sick and the husband spent the fourth day taking care of her, when the other wife came and started quarreling and their husband tried to explain how he was a fool. Over a storm, the battle began and the wife start to hit the husband with some stones. He runs towards her to stop the fighting because it is a shame when a wife quarrel the husband that's when the man got angry and hit the woman very hard and injured her near death. It was a sad thing if you were stopped something crazy but you don't listen that will lead you to something bad. Don't attempt to do so try to listen and learn how to respect.
