Rita is scared

Rita has replied to all those who advised her when her husband ordered her to pack and leave the house. This is her letter.

Dear loving friends,
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your love and concern. Your advice comforted me and gave me strength to live on. I was on the verge of despair.
When my husband ordered me to pack and leave the house, I did not know what was behind it. He had pretended to be such a good and loving husband. I did not know he was such a hypocrite.

When he returned from work that day, I was there waiting for him. Hardly did I know he had planned the worst for me. Our discussion erupted into a serious quarrel; then turned into a fight. He got a cutlass to butcher me. By some miracle, I managed to overpower him and to escape. I am now away, feeling safe.

I have got what’s behind all this. He met a girl and they planned to marry. What I can’t understand is just yesterday I got a letter fom him asking me to return to the house saying he does not know what came over him. I am scared because he actually attempted to butcher me.

I am at a loss what to do

Again, thank you for your love and best wishes from my heart.

    • Are you saying that the man may have a secret agenda which may be to harm Rita? It means he is not to be trusted. The problem is the children. If Rita stays away for safety, will her children be safe?

      • given the information we have, he was going to butcher her — normal people do not do these things, not even under stress…clearly he has issues that need to be tended to and she needs to take the children and stay away from him…
