"Dear Pulse,

My name is Nneka, a 28-year-old lady. My life is gradually falling apart after I thought God had finally answered my prayers and given me a man of my own.

After years of disappointments in the hands of men, I met Efosa, a young businessman and after dating for a year, he proposed to me. I was over the moon and did everything to make sure my dreams for they would be realised.

We did our introduction in my hometown and everyone was looking forward to the great day. We had fixed a date for our wedding and our invitation cards were out.

My family and friends have been busy getting set, buying things, getting my wedding gown and generally planning big for the day. In all of these, Efosa was not left out as he was also putting finishing touches from his end and we were looking forward to the day when, out of the blues, he showed up his hands in the most callous way anyone can ever think of.

I did not know that the preparations Efosa was making was not towards our wedding but actually for another woman. In fact, I had seen the lady about twice at his place and he told me she was his cousin who came in from America.

But with about six weeks to our wedding, I was shocked beyond words when a friend who happened to be from Efosa's place came to my office to hand me a wedding invitation card and it was for the wedding between Efosa and the lady he introduced as his cousin.

It was by the grace of God that I was able to drive home that day. I went straight to Efosa house to confront him and he told me point blank that he family wanted him to marry the lady and there was nothing he could do about it.

As I write this, I am supposed to get married in three week's time but Efosa has put me to the greatest shame any woman can ever face.

I think suicide is the best way out.
