Nyirahabimana Consolee tells Mukeshimana Godelive stories about the way young girls acted before she was born, drawing on her own life and the stories her aunts told her. They include everything from weaving, the to difficulties with accepting advice, dealing with mothers-in-law, giving birth, changing traditions about co-wives, and much more.

"I can’t confirm that all the poor take a wrong way which will cause them more pain because of poverty. So even the poor can keep their dignities in their poverty and finally get their own families." Nyirahabimana Consolee

"If you are unfortunate and marry a husband and fail to collaborate with your mother-in-law and your sister-in-laws, I hear there is a saying which says that; 'The worst co-wife is your sister-in-law and mother-in-law'." Mukeshimana Godelive
