A reader, Charles, who recently got married is on the verge of losing his wife after her maid of honour seduced him into sleeping with her on their wedding night and turned around to blackmail him when he put a stop to it.

In his letter to Pulse published, 58% of voters say they would report such an incident to their spouses while 39% say they would never fall into that temptation while 2% say they would gladly take the opportunity presented.

Read Charles' letter here:

"My name is Charles and I am in a deep trouble now as my marriage of barely two months is on the brink of collapse due to what I did on my wedding night.

I am not proud to relate what happened but I have no option but to come out in the open and seek advice from fellow readers and also use this opportunity to tell my wife, Laura, that I am very sorry.

Our wedding was on December 19, 2015, after dating for over three years. I had hoped and prayed for a great and long lasting marriage with Laura whom I love with the whole of my heart, but little did I know that her best friend and maid of honour, Kate, would be the spanner in the works.

After the wedding proper, some of my friends decided to host us to an after party but Laura begged to be excused, citing tiredness. We all moved to a hotel where we had the party.

There were lots to drink and coupled with my tiredness, I had to retire midway into the party. My friends had booked for a room for me and I went to the room to sleep and in my tipsy state, I forgot to lock the door.

Such was my surprise when I woke up to find Kate on top of me, making love to me. I was shocked, to say the least but what did I care as I was really aroused and we spent the rest of the night having sex.

In the morning, I was so ashamed of myself and begged her not to let my wife know what transpired and she agreed.

I did not know that she had something up her sleeve as, three days later, she came to my office and invited me to her house for another round of sex.

I bluntly refused and she threatened she would report our escapades to Laura. I did not take her serious, only for my wife to confront me with my darkest secret two weeks ago, saying Kate informed her I had raped her on our wedding night.

I tried to explain to her that her friend took advantage of my drunken state but Laura would not accept that. She blamed me, saying her friend could not lie to her.

As I write this, she has moved some of her things to her family house and no one believes what I say.

I don't know how to save my young marriage.
