Melvina is not happy that her husband of 18 years hid a love child he had 25 years ago from her for all the years they have been living together.
What makes the revelation so painful is that the child is male and that automatically knocks off my own son as the first male in the family.
When I got married to Peter, he never told me he had a child, not that I would have minded because I was so much in love with him.
All through the years, he never told me he had a child somewhere and members of his family also kept quiet about it till I got to know two months ago when we all went to the village for the final burial of his father.
After the ceremony, the family decided to share the properties left behind by their father and we all were gathered together to partake in the sharing.
It was when it got to our turn that the eldest man in the family mentioned that my husband’s first son should be recognized before my son.
I was surprised at the statement and questioned if there was any first son apart from my own son and that was when the bombshell was dropped that a young man I saw being very active during the burial was Peter’s first son.
I was really shocked at the revelation and stormed out of the meeting and went to my room. Later, my husband came and tried to explain that he did not tell me about the boy because he did know how I would take it.
He has been begging me since then but I am sure if I can ever forgive him for the deceit and shame he brought to me.
What should I do?
