Pulse Nigeria Poll Readers think Michael should forget Susan

87% of Pulse Nigeria Poll voters are of the opinion that Michael should forget Susan after she betrayed him and move on with his life.

  • Published:

Michael loved Susan so much and did everything for her and her family in the hope of getting married to her in the future.

But when he proposed to her, she did the most unthinkable thing by telling him she does not love him enough to marry him as she and her ex-boyfriend were planning to get married.

Read his story here:

"My name is Michael, a 36-year-old man. I live and work in Lagos and just when I thought everything is working out for me as I had planned, my fiancée, Susan, has made my life a living hell.

She has turned me into a laughing stock among my friends and within my family, with everyone telling me I got what I deserve after I had defied everyone and vowed to get married to her.

I met Susan about for years ago after a woman I loved with the whole of my heart disappointed me by eloping with one of my friends to South Africa.

At the time Susan came into my life, I had sworn never to fall in love stupidly for another woman again but with her, it was something different as I fell madly in love with her.

I saw in her a woman I could spend the rest of my life with. Susan had all the qualities any man would want to have as a wife and I did everything to make her happy.

Using my connections, I got her a new and better job, got her a well-furnished two-bedroom flat, bought her a car and even set up a shop for her old mother.

When her younger brother wanted to travel abroad, I spent more than N350,000 to pay for his visa and ticket. I did all these because I thought I was investing in my future wife but little did I know I was being taken for a fool.

I had introduced her to my family members and friends and while some approved of her, some warned me about her and cautioned me on the way I was spending money on her and her family but I did not want anyone to detract me from the woman I love.

In the middle of last year, I went with some family members to formally introduce myself to her family and made my intentions known to them and they accepted me as their in-law to be.

But in December, Susan did the most shocking thing. She had come over to spend the weekend with me but I noticed that she was not comfortable and I tried to find out what was wrong with her.

That was when I got the shock of my life. Susan plainly told me that she was not sure she could get married to me.

I thought she was just pulling my legs and when I asked her for her reason, she told me that she does not deserve me, that she had been cheating on me with her ex-lover who came back into her life.

She begged that I should forgive her because she has made up her mind to marry her ex. With that, she left me.

I cried so much that night and when I told my best friend about what Susan did, he simply told me he knew the relationship was built on falsehood but that I was too blinded by love to notice that Susan was just using me.

I have been living like an automaton since then as life has no more meaning for me. At times, I have been tempted to commit suicide but something keeps holding me back.
