I am a learner of English. Usually I use and see the prepositions by and in before the noun (hands). As these prepositions make sense when they come before the noun. But today I read an article on a news website. Where the reporter used the preposition at before the noun and it completely did not sound natural to me. So, as usual I landed here to get some help on it.
On the news website:
Ms Muhia says she would leave if her husband brought home another woman, and that many others would do the same.
"Where are we heading, we are going to have many divorces," she says.
Some men clearly feel threatened by such talk. Nderitu Njoka, who runs a men's empowerment group, says Kenyan men often suffer economic, legal and even physical abuse at the hands of women - and he defends polygamy.
"If your first or second wife doesn't respect you as a man - does not care for you, cook for you, do all those things that she's supposed to do, then you're not supposed to just stay there and live a stressful life."
