Housemaids have been known to take over a marriage


Henry is a very good husband and father but one attribute that dents his image is his incurable flirtatious lifestyle.

This has seen him running after everything in skirt including sleeping with his housemaids, something that he caused untold heartache for his wife, Chika.

Read her story here:

"My name is Chika, a 35-year-old married mother of three. I am unfortunate to get married to a man who has a problem controlling his sexual libido.

That seems to be Henry's major undoing because apart from that, he is really a super husband and a lovely father to our kids, the more reason I find it difficult to leave him even when he misbehaves.

Many of my friends have advised me to divorce Henry but at my age and with three children, I doubt if getting a divorce is the best option. Others have said I should keep praying for him to change but for how long will I keep praying for a man who is not ready to change?

My husband is so randy that he goes after anything in skirt including our housemaids. In the 10 years that we have been married, Henry has been caught on four different occasions having sex with my maids.

The first time I caught him, I had just given birth to our first child and my mother had to send a young girl from the village to help me around the house as she was not strong enough to come herself.

Just one month after the girl came to live with us, I walked into her room in the dead of night after hearing some strange sounds to catch my husband humping away on her.

The girl confessed that it was not the first time he had sneaked into her room to make love to her. Henry begged and pleaded that no one should hear the sordid story, especially my people at home as it would be a big disgrace.

I had to forgive him, not knowing that more would follow. He even got one of the maids pregnant and we to procure a secret abortion fo her but it seemed my keeping quiet went a long way to embolden him as he keeps going back to his vomit and bringing disgrace to me.

I have had it up to my neck with his philandering and I am not sure I will be able to bear another of such betrayal.

What do I do?
