My name is John, a 37-year-old married man working in Port Harcourt while my wife and three children stay in Lagos.
The reason we got separated was that I got a well-paying job in an oil company in and had to move down to Port Harcourt and as I did not want to disrupt the children’s school session, I had to allow then stay in Lagos for the time being.
I was also living in a hotel as the company had yet to provide me with accommodation for close to a year that I had been there.
My wife, Laura, works in an insurance company and getting a transfer was next to impossible unless she had to resign from the job.
I had to shuttle between the Lagos and Port Harcourt, most times visiting two weekends in a month so that my family would not miss me too much.
Apart from visiting often to be with my family, I was always on the phone with my wife and children. I held morning devotions with them by phone and followed up on their progress daily.
They lacked nothing I could provide within my powers and I thought I had a perfect wife who would hold the home front together while I was away, but I have realized that if a woman wants to cheat on her husband, you can do all you can but she would still play the field.
Even when my best friend whom I urged to always visit my family and make them comfortable told me several times how he met my wife’s absence on several occasions, leaving the children with the housemaid most times he visited, I argued that it could be because of her job.
Sincerely, I never believed my wife could ever be unfaithful to me because apart from providing everything she needed, I made sure she was not sex-starved whenever I went to Lagos.
But the stark reality hit me in face when I discovered that she was actually committing adultery with several men. The day I found out about her infidelity, I had retired to my hotel room after a very hectic day at work and found it difficult to sleep.
After tossing about on the bed for many hours, I switched on my Facebook account to try and catch up with my contacts.
While surfing the net, I stumbled on new pictures posted by my wife and some of the pictures were quite explicit and unbecoming of a married mother.
Out of curiosity, I plowed into her private account and there, I met the most shocking scenario of my life.
There was my wife chatting with different men and the chats showed that they were not just friends but lovers.
She posted photos of them at different places like the beach and hotels where they were naked, kissing and on the bed. I thought it was another person that just resembled my wife but I decided to further investigate.
The next time I went to Lagos, I stealthily took her phone when she was not in the bedroom and checked her Whatsapp page and I immediately regretted my curiosity because what I saw almost sent me into a psychiatric home.
My wife had been to chatting with other men, telling them how much she enjoyed sex with them and what she would do to them the next time they met.
When she came to bed that night, I confronted her with what I saw and naturally, she denied that she ever cheated on me but when I showed her all I had found out, she broke down and confessed, saying it was loneliness that made her do what she did.
After I left for Port Harcourt, I sent my elder sister to go and take my children to stay with her till I come up with a plan.
Though I have refused to tell our family and friends what she did so as not to disgrace her, I have refused to listen to any explanation from her.
I want to send her out of my life but being from a broken home myself, I fear what that would do to my children but at the same time, I don’t think I can ever live with such an adulterous woman again.
Dear readers, on True Confession today, we want you to put yourself in John’s shoes and tell him what to do in this situation.
