Snatching And It's Mentality.

Good morning to you all my esteemed TLBers and a super productive week to you all.. How was your weekend, any owambe? (me I attended a wedding and I was glad I did will tell you why some day)

You all have heard the word snatching right?  So today am writing about  an experienced from a friend's friend (or client) you all get what i mean nah so why the face? Lolz.

For some reasons some people tend to wakeup in their relationship only when someone else appear in the picture.
It was a matter that a lawyer friend handled sometime back.
A man was said to be unusually mean to the mother of his three children. So many people who felt that the lady does not deserve all that meanness from a man she has given a better part of her life to, waded into the matter by chiding the man. 
His usual response was said to be she is free to go, if she has become too big to live under my roof. 
Well, Which man will even look at a woman that has had children anyway?
When it seems the lady has had enough she moved out of his house one morning after a severe beating that was said to have left her with bruises.

Succour in the form of accommodation and job came her way through friends and  in no time she found her feet and even began to savour her new life.
My lawyer friend got involved in the matter when it was learnt that the same man who did not appreciate who he had, was trailing her all over town, cajoling and threatening her to come back to what he called "her home" . 
Same man went as far as attacking a man he sighted with the woman in a restaurant claiming that the man had snatched his woman from him. 
The court had to be approached to issue a restraining order to him.

When I wondered aloud at the mentality of some men to a male friend, he confirmed my worst fears.  He claimed that he can also act that way. He claimed it's because of love. Biko what kind of love will make a man treats his woman in a very  demoralizing way?

I asked, if somebody picks up what you have thrown to the  dogs, clean and begin to treasure it do you still call that  snatching?.
It is actually what you hold lovingly in your embrace and unwilling to let go of, that can be considered as being snatched. (from you) when another comes for it in a forceful manner.
Remember the person you take for granted for whatever reasons will always be appreciated by another. If it had to take someone else in the picture for you to appreciate that man or woman in your life,  I put it to you that you do not deserve him/her in the  first place., because who we appreciate we do not take for granted.
If you choose to treat your spouse in a less deserving manner, then you have no right to cry blue murder when another brings him/her close because for every pain you cause him/her, someone else is willing to give him/her a double  smile.

What's your take on this?
Let's chat in the comment section.

  10. My my my, see it goes both ways. If you carelessly push ur partner away, someone else will draw him/her close love n cherish them. At that point you can't accuse that person of snatching....
