We actually had our first heart to heart, honest
no holds barred family meeting tonight. It came
about after my husband discovered my texts with
a couple of girlfriends who share the same prob
lem with me regarding their husbands.
What is it? Well, all our husbands drink Kava.
[a cultural drink/polynesian] I won't go too much
into it, but you can google Kava Ceremonies. So
they usually will leave home at about 6 or 7 pm and
return back home in the wee hours of the morning
say 4 or 5 am. maybe after 12 noon?
Just last year, we had several problems where
some of the Kava drinkers were having affairs
with the girls serving the Kava drink at the
ceremony and there were several visits to the
bishop's offices and so forth.
Well, the wives are secretly banding together to
do something about it and let our husbands know
that enough is enough. Most of our hard earned
money is ending up going to the girls/ women
serving this muddy Kava drink, while the wives
are wondering where the paychecks are really
going. Yes, this is pretty forward. But, I'm real
irritated about this whole thing and going to talk
about it anyway on here.
So he found out that we're writing letters that
to the prophet and voicing how much Kava is
destroying our families. In Oregon right now
they don't take away the temple recommends for
the men that drink Kava and that is what the
letters are for. To plead with the prophet to
set the rules they have in Tonga & SLC, to be
the same here also.
Yes, my dh is angry and shouldn't be after the
problems we've been going through. But, these
wives need assurance that the right thing needs
to be done here. He's demanded that I not be
involved in anything. From my point of view,
I'm not going to say what I will do..mums the
word here on out...lol.
My prayers are with my fellow sisters out there
who are struggling with this adversity in their
families. I know God hears your prayers and
they will be answered.
