A Married Woman’s Confession

23 July 2012, 12:06 HONEYBOY42

Hi readers, I just want to share my true life story with you so that you can learn from it. We are human beings, we make mistakes every day but it left for you to learn from your mistakes.

My name is 'Anonymous' I won't mention where I come from for security reasons. I met this guy in 2001 when I was writing WAEC, his name is Guy A. We fell in love.

He was everything a woman would ask for. He was fair, handsome, intelligent and God fearing. He loved me so much, he shared the little he had with me. He was willing to do anything I asked for, though he didn't have much because he was still in his second year at the University of Nigeria, Enugu campus.

He did everything possible for me to gain admission into the university. I eventually gained admission in 2003 at Enugu State University of Science and Technology and graduated in 2007.

I don’t know what came over me. I had a fling with this guy named Guy B. Though I never loved him, but I became pregnant for him. I didn’t know what to do, but terminating the pregnancy was not an option. I didn’t want to lose GuyA. It was as if my world has crumbled.

I didn't tell anybody, not even my best friend. because I never could tell what would happen if I did. I made a smart move by telling Guy A that I was pregnant for him.

Of course, he believed me because he trusted me so much but I betrayed his love for me. He came to see my people, though my parents are dead.

I eventually put to bed; a baby girl. This was in 2008. Do you know what my baby was exactly the carbon copy of Guy B; the guy I had a fling with?

I was not surprised because I knew the pregnancy wasn't Guy A's but I thought the baby would've resembled me. Of course, I was wrong. Guy A accepted us even when he knew the baby does not look like him or me.

Ever since, I have been dying in silence. My conscience kept killing me. At a point, I hated my own child seeing a picture of another man in her. My husband, GuyA loved her so much more than anything.

In 2010, I had another baby boy for my husband. My joy knew no bounds. I was really happy, my husband was happy as well.

In 2012, I had another baby boy for my husband, Guy A. Even at that, he loved my daughter more than our two biological sons. At one point, I became jealous but what can I do. I just couldn’t bear it any more so I decided to give my life to Christ and beg God for forgiveness which I know he has done.

This I did because I couldn’t continue to die in silence. It was now time for me to confess to my husband but how would I achieve that without breaking my home? I didn’t want to lose my home, I loved my husband and my kids.

He is a wonderful man but I betrayed him. I prayed and asked God to give me strength.
