My name is Stephanie, a 30-year-old married woman but my marriage is about to collapse after my husband got my best friend pregnant.
This is really threatening to tear my marriage apart and I need advice fast before I do something silly.
I have been married for five years now; though I am still praying for a fruit of the womb. I thought I had a happy marriage. But then I realized that I have been living in a fool’s paradise. I found out that my husband has been sleeping with Teni, my best friend; and now she is pregnant for him.
I have been friends with Teni from childhood. We, however, were so close that people thought we were actually sisters. We went to the same secondary school and were only separated during our university days. Notwithstanding we kept in touch regularly.
Two years after my youth service, I got married to my boyfriend of seven years. And, oh, I had prayed for a happy and fulfilled married. Then Teni decided to put spanners in the works for me not minding that we have been friends for ages.
There is something I must say about Teni. All her life, Teni found it difficult to keep a steady relationship, something that gave her family and close friends cause for concern. I can count the number of relationships she has been in without anyone lasting more than a year; it was that bad.
Last year, she got a job offer in Lagos and naturally, she had to stay with us before she could get a place to stay. I was so happy to have her live with us as we continued our closeness and I was even happier when she and my husband hit it off right from the first day she came in; little did I know there was something else brewing.
Their closeness grew and at a time, I became suspicious and told my husband I was no longer comfortable with it but he swore he was only being nice to her. But just three months ago, I noticed Teni was becoming fatter, lazy and throwing up all the time.
When I asked her what was wrong with her, she assured me she was just suffering from malaria and would soon be okay. But the cast were removed from my eyes when my husband confessed that Teni was actually pregnant for him and he intended for her to have the baby.
He said since I am yet to bear a child for him, he and his family are in support of Teni keeping the baby.
At the moment, I am at a cross road and I do not know what to do. Is it wrong to help a friend? Why should my husband and best friend treat me this way?
Dear readers, this is another grand betrayal and on True Confession today, we are asking: what would you do if your best friend is pregnant for your husband?
