She won't share my bed.

Today my friend sent me the following text to me and I want to type the way as it is so that cant understand clearly. "I got married to a woman who had two children from a previous relationship. We have one child together. We started a joint business some years ago but unfortunately the business has been floundering. My wife started a second business with a friend of hers. This business is doing well but it has now become the source of our problems. Since she began the second business she has often failed to come home in the evening, sleeping at places unknown to me. When she is home she sleeps in a separate room. I have asked her for a divorce but she has refused. She has told me that I shall die poor if I insist on divorce, as she will claim everything. My friends have told me that if I divorce her, she will have the right to our house and the children from her previouse relationships. This is despite the fact that I have fully taken them as my own, even registering their names on the title deed to my ancestral land. Can she really take everything including sole custody of the children? Can I compell my wife to return to our matrimonial bedroom? Ladies and gentlement lets help this guy who is in great need.

it's best for you to get help from a lawyer who knows these matters well. but if you still can rebuild the relationship, then that should be the best thing for you to do. If you can still be happy with each other, then that great. try talking to her about what's happening, she should be able to explain. in the first place, there is no point staying in a relationship if you don't love the other person anyway.

Hi kemboi, Your friend must seek help from someone who understands the law in Kenya. While it is true in most countries that children will stay with the mother, especially if they are young, it is not always the case. As laws are different from one country to another, it would be pointless for me to offer more advice. Blessings.

If your friend is also Kenyan and living there I would doubt she could claim it but he should take legal advice and not listen to all and sundry. all the best urban
