Marriageable Ladies

Sometimes the most shocking things are learned by accident.

Mine Host, after one of those stupid training courses that are part and parcel of existence in a modern western nanny society, is in discussion with the Trainer (from down south) and Two fellow participants, well-adjusted rather attractive young ladies, sisters, aged roughly 20-25 years.

Not without a touch of wistfulness, the Trainer enquires as to why they aren't yet married?

The enthusiastic smiling reply came as if the answer was perfectly normal, something to be proud of, and rather dampens the conversation for Mine Host & the Trainer, though the girls don't understand this.

"Oh no, our father isn't finished with us yet!"

If it is only their father enforcing conjugal rights, then they are better off than many.
