My secret about to kill me – the child my husband thinks is his son, my boyfriend wants him back
I lived with my husband for 9 years but no child we can call our own.
I was getting desperate and impatient to have my own child but my husband was all calm about it.
He was hoping and believing in God, while I was getting desperate and loosing faith in God.
I encouraged my husband on several occasions for us to visit a fertility hospital, but he kept flinging the idea, giving reasons that the money involve was too much, that we can’t afford it.
He was calm about the whole situation and feeling less bothered, but his family wasn’t.
Pressure was mounted on me when his mother came with her problem.
She threatened me to get pregnant or she will bring in another wife for her son.
She gave me 3 months to do so or I get ready to welcome my cowife.
I expected my husband to react extensively, but he didn’t. His silence knuckled my head that, he was ok with every decision his mother made.
I wasn’t ready to loose my marriage and I wasn’t also ready to share my husband with another woman and hence, my search for a child became more intensed. I was under intense lot of pressure.
I started doing it with my husband almost everyday, hoping that, it would catch, but to my greatest disappointment, I wasn’t so lucky. The anxiety was much.
Anytime it got close for my period to start, I would get nervous, praying that it never came, but fate wasn’t smiling on my side.
The 3 months period elapsed and my mother inlaw came through with her threat.
She brought in another girl into the house as my husband’s second wife.
There wasn’t a name on this planet she didn’t call me.
A witch, that I have eaten up all the babies in my womb. She also accused me of committing numerous abortions and damaging my womb in the process. She tried throwing me out of the house, claiming that her son won’t be living with his fellow man in the name of a marriage. She called my marriage, “cursed”, because there is no cry of a baby heard anywhere.
