True Confession: ‘My mother-in-law pushed me into the arms of another man’

“Dear Editor,

My name is Glory, a 36-year-old married woman who was pushed into the arms of another by my mother-in-law due to her constant bickering about my childless status.

As a result of that, I am currently three months pregnant but my husband is not responsible for my pregnancy.

I have been married for 12 years but all through those years, my mother-in-law and my husband’s sisters have not given me any peace of mind as they keep blaming me for our inability to have a child. They have called me all sorts of names, attacked me physically and at one time, brought a new wife for my husband all in a bid to force me out.

Most times, I have felt like committing suicide especially when my husband, looked on without coming to my aid.

In fact, my husband has taken sides with his family to maltreat me with all of them blaming our inability to have a child on me as if I am God or I would put the baby in my womb. But all the medical tests I took proved that there was nothing wrong with me and that I was fertile enough to have my own children.

I know the number of nights I have cried and begged God to take my life because of what they made me go through. Do I begin to recall the insults I have received from my mother-in-law, the name calling, the abuses and the slaps I have gotten from her?

What of the insults she has heaped on my family, calling my mother a witch and branding every member of my family as good for nothing low-lives?

What of times she spat on my face, poured water on me, called me a barren woman who only ate her son’s food and money without giving him a child?

No one laid a blame on my husband and all my efforts to get him to go for a test proved abortive as he kept saying he was man enough and that my inability to have a child was because I had destroyed my womb with abortions before we got married.

The trauma was getting too much when a close friend advised I date another man and see if the problem was really from me or from my husband.

By this time, I was past caring and I threw all caution to the wind and decided to take my friend’s advice. She linked me up with a man and we started dating secretly.

It was then no surprise that six months into the affair, I became pregnant. When I told my husband that I was pregnant, he was not enthralled at first but when I showed him the test result, he went about pumping his chest, calling himself a man and a father to be.

He told his mother and sisters and they all came over to congratulate me, forgetting all they made me go through. They have been treating me like a queen these days, falling over themselves to make me feel comfortable.

But I have a surprise for them. I have not told my secret lover that he is the father of my baby yet. My friend says I should not let him know and I should cut off the relationship as I have gotten what I wanted.

But I plan to punish my husband and his family by declaring that he is not the one responsible for my pregnancy. But before I do that, I plan to be far away from them.

I can take care of my baby when he is born even without a father. What do you think?


Dear readers, Glory is really on a vengeful mission and the pains she went through is fueling her anger. On True Confession today, do you think she should go about it the way she has planned it?
