This is a very sensitive topic but it has been bugging me to no end. Lately, I have been trawling a lot of Nigerian blogs and where ever there is a post on marriage and relationships, the next thing you know, is somebody (usually female) goes off on a tangent, it seems, about 'husband-snatchers' and how they want to take what somebody else has worked for etc etc... Then I just came from a blog where somebody claims another woman snatched her husband and she should return him etc etc... My question is what exactly is a husband-snatcher? How do you 'snatch' someone else's husband? Why is it that it is only the husbands that are snatched, never the wives? These 'snatched' men, how do they see themselves? Is snatching voluntary or forced? I mean, don't the 'snatchees' have any say in the matter? Or are the 'snatchers' so powerful that no one they set their eyes on can resist them? This is no tongue-in-cheek post...I really do need some kind of clarity here because I'm seriously struggling to understand how you can snatch something/one that is 'stuck' to another. I particularly welcome posts from married folk...not about your own personal situations but since it's usually a 'husband' that is snatched...what is your own perspective on this snatching business? Has anybody ever had the unfortunate experience of being labelled a 'husband-snatcher' (unfortunately, 'wife-snatchers' seem to get away with it so...) for whatever reason (you don't have to justify yourself...this is not a court of law so no judgement will be passed) I am genuinely, genuinely interested in this issue because a lot of people seem to linking it to well, mainly 'single' girls out there...as if married women can't snatch... But back to the question before I end up answering it myself...What exactly is a husband-snatcher? Thank you.
