A Pulse reader, Ifunanya Obiora, is in need of urgent advice on what to do after she discovered that her husband of eight years secretly got married to another woman so that he could get a male child after she had given birth to three females.
Readers say they won't divorce a husband who got married to another woman
How would you advice a woman whose husband secretly got married to another woman just so he could get a male child?
This is the letter she sent in:
"My name is Ifunanya Obiora. I have been married for eight years with three beautiful daughters and I thought I had a settled home with a loving husband, not knowing that I was living in a fool's paradise.
I just got to realise that my husband actually has a younger woman he got married to about four years ago and they have a child together.
I was hit with this bitter truth when an old friend came to visit us and was surprised when I introduced my husband to her.
When I was seeing her off, she told me that she saw my husband in her village with a young woman who just had a new baby and when she made inquiries, she was told that the man was the lady's husband and that they had done their introduction some months earlier.
I was devastated by the news and when I confronted my husband, he confessed that the lady was actually married for him by his family in their quest for him to have a male child.
I don't know what to do at the way my husband has betrayed me. Should I pack out of his house as some friends have advised?"
The poll for the day was:
How Nigeria voted:
40% - Yes, I will divorce him because he has betrayed me
60% - No, I will not divorce him as marriage is for life
How would you vote?
