The reason Haitian women stay with their cheating husbands is due to financial dependence

David Grant - March 14 2019, 6:25 PM

We are all exposed to different cultures; and in many. it is not religious to end marriages in divorce.The roman catholic is totally against divorce - this is in the Bible; and Haiti is eighty percent catholic.

However.

I have a sneaky feeling that the reason why the Haitian women invariably stay with their husbands is due to financial dependence - the man is always the breadwinner.

This is always the case.

What do you think about it?
