Is It A Crime For A Wife To Help/cover Up For Her Husband When He's Financially Strapped?
My father is a contractor and my mother is a businesswoman. My father works for a company and they are paying him handsomely while my mother is also doing well in her business.
To cut the long story short;
It all started in 2014, things were not going on smoothly in the company where my father works and this lead to the company not giving him contract the way they use to because of the problem. My father became financially strapped because he had lend money to execute a certain contract that was given to him earlier before the problem started in the company.
My father started thinking to the extent that people thought he was sick. My mother had to cover up for him so that people won't know what is happening and she started giving him money and she also took up the responsibilities in the family since my father is short of cash.
Now,the problem we are facing in the family for the past five(5) years since the problem have started is that my father doesn't want to carry out his responsibilities in the family anymore. Although,things have been changing since 2017 but he's not ready to do anything again because my mother have been helping him including feeding.
My mother is now fed up of the whole situation because it is already reflecting in her business and the burden is just too much for her to bear alone.
What is the way out?
