"Dear Pulse,

My name is Jessica. I have been married for eight years with four beautiful daughters. My husband has been a very good man who loves his daughters so much but my problem is that my husband's family have been on his neck to get another woman who would give birth to a son, who they say would be his heir.

My husband has stood his ground and insists that he would never abandon his wife and children but the pressure is beginning to take its toll on him and his recent commitment to me and the children has got me thinking twice.

I have made his family realise that giving birth to female children is not the woman's fault but what the man puts in her, but they are insisting that the fault is mine.

Some of them even say I must have aborted all the male children in my womb or that I am witch who has eaten all the male children, leaving their brother with females.

They have given my husband an ultimatum to send me out and get another wife and that ultimatum expires at the end of this month.

Please I want your readers to advice me on what I should do.

Jessica,

Lagos."
