"Dear Pulse,

My name is Chiamaka and I got married just last year but my marriage is on the brink of disintegration because my ex-boyfriend has vowed to cause havoc on me if I refused to continue sleeping with him even as a married woman.

My husband, Leslie, is no longer finding it funny with the way Mark keeps bugging us with calls, text messages and threats about putting up some nude photos we had taken when we were dating on the social media.

He know that if he does that, Les will be destroyed because he comes from a very prominent family and Mark has even promised to drag the family name into it.

I met Mark about a year after my National Youth Service and he was already working in an advertising firm. I had been in some relationships back in school but Mark swept me off my feet and I was hopelessly in love with him, so much that he could manipulate me anyway he wanted.

He was always coming up with strange ideas and when he suggested we made some nude videos and photos, I did not object to the suggestion. In fact, I saw it as harmless fun and we made some videos while making love. He also snapped me in the nude.

But now, a year after I got married to another man, Mark is trying to bring me down, saying that I still belong to him and I must continue sleeping with him. I have begged him to collect money from me and hand over the incriminating items but he would have none of that.

Leslie has vowed to end the marriage if Mark goes ahead with his threat which, knowing Mark for who he is, may not be far from now.

I want advice on how to handle this precarious situation.


Dear readers, on Morning Teaser today, we want you to lend a voice to Chiamaka on what you think she should do.

Would you go ahead to sleep with an ex to save your marriage?»
