A Pulse reader, Dubem, loves her aunt like her mother but she is not happy that her uncle is dating her close friend who is even pregnant for the man.

She is wracked by guilt and know she should have told her aunt immediately she realised her husband was cheating on her but is it too late to tell?

Read her letter here:

"Dear Pulse,

My name is Dubem and I currently live with my mother's sister in Abuja while waiting for my call up letter to proceed on youth service.

My aunt has been so nice to me and treats me like her blood daughter but I feel guilty because her husband is playing the field and it gives me cause for concern.

My aunt loves her husband so much and she can't keep talking about him and can even defend any allegation against him with her life but little does she know that he is actually cheating on her with reckless abandon. I never knew uncle is such a serial cheater until I ran into him in my friend's apartment in Kubwa.

That day, I had gone to visit Anita, a former school mate after she had disturbed me so much to come and meet her new man.

So I was surprised when it was my uncle who told us at home he was traveling to Port Harcourt and his wife had actually driven him to the airport a day earlier.

When he saw me, he was surprised but he played it cool and I also pretended I did not know him.

My friend told me he was the one who rented the apartment for her, bought her a car and placed her on a monthly allowance.

She was all over him that day and I felt so embarrassed I had to leave immediately.

When he came back, he did everything to appease me, begging me not to tell his wife. I gave him a condition that he should break off the relationship with Anita but he has continued with it and only two weeks ago, Anita told me she is pregnant for him and she has no intentions of aborting.

Now my problem is that I feel guilty not telling my aunt on time and knowing Anita, no one would be able to convince her to abort."

Pulse Nigeria Poll poser for this dilemma was:

Would you tell your aunt that her husband is sleeping with your friend?

How Nigeria voted:

59% - Yes, I will tell her

34% - No, I would not want to break her home

9% - It is none of my business

So how would vote here?
