if you don't own a bank account and he has absolute control of the finances and will not give you any money to buy a ticket, how will you go for your parent's burial?
I am not saying that the man was not controlling everything but if she wanted to go pay her LAST RESPECTS to her father she would have gone. If money was the main issue then she would have found a way to go. I am saying this because if a woman came to me and told me such a sad story about what her man was doing to her and how her father has died and he will not let her go to Nigeria, I don't even have to know that woman from Adam. I will find that money and give to her. I will call people up and raise that money if I did not have it. So I feel that if she wanted to go to her dads funeral, she would have borrowed that money, begged for it if she had to.
If you are coming from the point of view that she was just so abused that she could not even consider doing something he told her not to then I will understand but from a financial standpoint............ ahah
