"Dear Pulse,

My name is Blessing. I have been married for 15 years but I have not been blessed with the fruit of the womb and now, my husband's parents want him to get another wife so that he can give them grand children.

I have prayed, fasted, visited almost every fertility hospital in Nigeria, visited spiritualists, even native doctors, all in a bid to get my own child but all my efforts have been in vain.

All the tests we have undertaken shows there is nothing wrong with my husband and I but as much as we have tried, we always meet with failure.

Now, my husband's parents, especially his mother, have turned against me and have been urging my husband to get another wife who is not barren like me. She even told me to my face that I have bewitched her son and that I must have killed all my children through abortion but God knows all through my single life, I never aborted a baby.

My husband too seems to be succumbing to the wishes of his parents and have hinted that he would have to listen to them and I must accept his decision or I pack out of his house.

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