MY HUSBAND IS CHEATING. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Being a creative consultant to one of the most hardworking women in the country is quite challenging. I hear a lot and here, I can serve as the voice for this people who need a platform to share their real life stories. Susan is a Port Harcourt based wife. She is married to Charles, her longtime boyfriend. They both dated for close to 7 years, a relationship which started way back from College. School ended and they continued with their love until Charles got a good income job and he proposed to Susie on one of there dates. Without hesitation, she said yes to her sweetheart and marriage vows were soon sealed. It’s now 8 years after their marriage and Susan has been blessed with 2 kids. Two beautiful girls. But alas! Something is still wrong with this lovely family. Charles, happen to travel a lot since the birth of his new born baby who is just 1 year and 7 months old. At first, Susan wasn’t bothered as he always claims of going on official assignments to other states. But suspicion and doubt started setting in when some of her husband’s colleague call their home line in an attempt to speak to the whole family and they were always been told about his official assignments. The tone in some of the response Susan hears after chatting with about 2 people made her think twice. Could it be that Charles’s journeys are just for his selfish reasons? This and many more questions go through her mind but Susan didn’t wish to admit the obvious. It continued for another six months after which, the innocent wife now started screening her husband. Well, finally, Susan was going through her husband’s pocket one day. Something she always do before the clothes are given out to the dry cleaners and there she found a picture. The picture of a little boy of about 4 who was being held by a woman that looked very much like his mother. She looked closely and this was exactly the picture of a boy, which she has seen on Charles’s mobile phone but he claimed he is for one of his colleagues. From that moment her real investigation began. And not only did she found out that the boy isn’t for any of her husband’s colleague, she also discovered that all his traveling had been fake and Charles hasn’t been sent out for anything official since about 5 years ago when he just started work afresh. In reality, Charles has a second wife, a lady named Bukky, based in Osun State and she is blessed with two boys. Both of which she discovered are for her husband. Now she needs your advice. Should they just continue living with this life of a lie or should she confront him. She doesn’t want to lose her marriage and also she is not pleased with sharing her husband with someone else.
