"Dear Pulse,

My name is Adetola and I have been married for eight years and still waiting on the Lord for a fruit of the womb.

But it seems my home is about to crumble as my husband has gotten our 19-year-old maid, Kike, pregnant and he insists she must not only keep the baby, but live with us as his second wife.

The girl has been with us since she was 10 and I took her as my sister, doing everything for her like I would do for my blood. After she finished secondary school, I made her to learn fashion designing while waiting to get her JAMB and gain admission into a university.

What more could I have done for this girl for her to turn round and get pregnant for my husband, a man she has called daddy all her life?

Do I even have to blame the girl? What of my husband who could not keep his eyes off the girl? If he had gotten another woman outside pregnant, it wouldn't be this bad but for me to now have Kike as my rival is unthinkable.

Some friends I confided in say I should divorce my husband but others, especially our pastor, say I should not leave my home but accept the situation the way it is as the girl's pregnancy could even pave the way for my own.

What should I do?
