Pulse Nigeria Poll Readers tell Onyinye to confess to her husband

48% of Pulse Nigeria Poll voters say Onyinye should confess to her husband that she had sex with her ex-boyfriend shortly before they got married.

  • Published:

Onyinye, a 26-year-old lady who just got married six months ago, is four months pregnant and that is where her confusion and dilemma lies.

As her husband, Callistus and his family are happy that Onyinye is pregnant, she is worried because she does not know if the baby really belongs to her husband.

Her fear stems from the fact that she had slept with her ex-boyfriend, Nathaniel, on the same day with her husband which led to her becoming pregnant.

Read her story here:

"My name is Onyinye, a 26-year-old lady. I got married three months ago and I am currently four months pregnant but I am afraid my husband, Callistus, may not be the father of the baby.

People say that it is a woman who knows the man who got her pregnant but in my case, I am not so sure because I had sex with my ex-boyfriend, Nathaniel, and Callistus a few hours apart and that is where my confusion lay.

I had been dating Nathaniel for five years and I was so much in love with him. I had hoped to get married to him but his parents insisted on him getting married to someone from their place.

I was devastated but I had to move on though we still met and had sex once in a while. When I met Callistus and he proposed to me, I vowed to stop seeing Nathaniel but I knew deep down that it would be very difficult to stop seeing him.

Even when the date for our wedding had been fixed and every rite performed, I still found myself sneaking to Nathaniel's house to have sex with him. This time around, I vowed to put an end to it once I got married.

So a month to my wedding, Nathaniel called me that I should come and see him as he was not feeling too well and when I went, I did not have sex in my mind. But one thing led to another and we had what we called goodbye sex.

When I got home, Callistus was waiting for me and in his usual way, he led me to the bed and we had sex. And that was the day I got pregnant.

My husband and his family are very happy that I am pregnant so soon after our wedding but every morning, I wake up with great trepidation and knot in my tummy thinking about what will happen if my husband gets to know that the baby is not his.

I don't know if I should confess to Callistus that I had sex with my ex-shortly before our marriage or if I should tell Nathaniel that I suspect my baby could be his own. I am really in a confused state.

What should I do?
