Would you tell your fiancée that you once dated his father when you were in the university?
My name is Linda and I am a 26-year-old lady based in Abuja. I have a problem which I hope your readers would be able to offer me some advice before I make any further mistake.
I met this wonderful young man, Raymond, when about a year ago and I must say, he is the best thing to ever happen to me. Our paths crossed when he came in from the US to take over his family's business because his father wanted to retire and as the first son, he had to come back home.
Ray loves me so much and has proposed to me but the problem is that I once dated his father when I was in the university. Back then, I allowed myself to pass through the school as well as the school passed through me. It was at a party organized by a politician and some girls in our school were invited.
It was at the party that I met Chief and we had an affair that lasted till I graduated. We were still dating off and on till Ray came into my life and I cut all links with Chief and any fling I had.
I did not want anything to jeopardize my relationship with him and I was so happy when he proposed to me and invited me to meet his parents.
But I got the greatest shock of my life when his father turned out to be the Chief I had dated before. The man too was surprise but he maintained his cool and the next day, he invited me to his guest house and there, he told me point blank that I cannot marry his son because he had slept with me several times.
He must have also told Ray that he cannot marry me though he has not told him the reason because Ray has been asking me what could have transpired that his father is adamant that we cannot get married.
My dilemma now is if I should tell Ray that I once dated his father. Won't he call off the marriage?
What do you think I should do?
