Show Summary

The husband agrees with the doctor to give him a goat with kids, or two goat or a cow and calf after the child bargained for has been followed by another. Or, if the agreement is not conditioned on the birth of a second child the date of payment is fixed at the time the expected child is old enough to tend the goats of the household (493).

Or, a barren woman may propose to her husband that she leave him conditionally and prove whether she is able to bear a child by another man. At the same time she requests him not to demand back the ngosa gifts from her parents. If she does bear a child in this way it is killed and she returns. It may be that since the way is opened up she will continue to bear. At any rate the fault is not hers and if she chooses to remain she will be treated with great consideration.
