Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – Thirty

Elder Beaumont got hisself killed, leaving behind a plain-faced, but wealthy, wife. When Brother Abram offered her the honour of becoming one of his wives, she refused him.

The shockwaves had barely settled when she took a husband of her own choosing, and there wasn’t a blamed thing to be done.

They could’ve shunned her, I guess. But wealth brings its own privilege.

Then she also married her husband’s brother.

The elders searched the holy book to no avail.

‘Each person may take such helpmeets as their soul deems correct, and their purse can afford.’

God knows no gender…
