Please help me. My life is crumbling before me. I love my wife so much and gave her everything I could. I made a lot of sacrifices to prove my love for her and also ensure that she doesn’t lack anything but she betrayed me. I recently found out that she has been cheating on me with my landlord. As if the blow wasn’t enough, she told me she is pregnant for him. I don’t even know what to do.
This pregnancy is supposed to be for our third child and now she’s saying the pregnancy is not mine. We have been married for just 7 years and the annoying thing is that we have lived here for the most parts of our marriage. We have been living in this current place for 5 years and we had one of our kids here. My second child, a girl was born here. I was really happy that my wife was pregnant because I was praying it would be a boy. My hopes were up. Really really up.
I am the only son of my parents and they are all waiting for me to give birth to a son. My two other sisters are married with kids. My wife and I have been living together in peace. She has always been nice and understanding, she has no job yet she helps out in the house financially. I feel so hurt. I gave up a lot of things just for my wife to be happy and comfortable.
What exactly will she be looking for in an old man? This my landlord is currently above sixty years and he has children that are as old as my wife and I. This is to say that this man is old enough to be my father. I have been a good tenant. I pay my bills early and I obey all his rules. What more should I do for him? Where did I wrong him? Why did my wife stoop so low to sleep with an old man?
As I type this I am so confused and angry. I don’t know what to do. We have just been married for 7 years so where do I start from? The marriage is still very young. Do I start filing for a divorce? My two kids are still tender. Another thing that is on my mind is about my second child. She was born in this place. What if she is not my biological child? What if she is my landlord’s child? What do I do?
Is there even any guarantee that my first child is mine. These and a lot more are on my head. I don’t know if I should send my wife away. I am trying to be calm but I am beginning to overthink things and I’m afraid I’ll make wrong decisions. Please help me. Should I divorce my wife, or move out of this house? I don’t think I will be able to forgive my wife. Even if I do, I don’t think I will ever forget this or trust her completely anymore.
What do I say to my family if I divorce her? What will people say? What happens to my kids? What of our children? I don’t know what to do now. Please help me.
