Hi all - I am AA. My boyfriend Nigerian.
My boyfriend does a lot for his family (monetarily and otherwise). I love that he is so responsible, and I have a great amount of respect for him. However, he has another brother and I've noticed that not as much is expected from him. When I've asked him about it in the past, he says that it is his duty as the first son.
Is this the norm? What exactly are some of the responsibilities of a "first son"? It pains me to see him work so hard, and then have to bear the brunt of responsibility for others, when there are other siblings that can help out as well. Is this fair?
