After just three months of marriage, Favour has discovered that she is five months pregnant and her husband, Austin, is not responsible for the pregnancy.

Rather, it belongs to her ex-boyfriend whom she had been sleeping with prior to her wedding.

Now the big dilemma for her is to either keep the truth away from her husband or confess to him.

"My name is Favour, a 26-year-old lady. I am in a very serious trouble at the moment and I don't know what the future has in stock for me.

I got married to Austin in December 2016 but shortly after, I realized that I am five months pregnant and I am very sure the pregnancy does not belong to him.

Before I met Austin, I was in a relationship with Martins but due to the fact that he was not ready for marriage, I had to leave him and marry Austin who was ready.

Even with my engagement to Austin and with the wedding date fixed, I was still seeing Martins and sleeping with him because I could not just leave him like that.

I now realize that it was a mistake on my part but then, I could not help myself because I loved Martins so much though I made a vow that I would cut off all links with him after my wedding.

But two months after the wedding, I started having the symptoms of pregnancy and I went for a test and it was confirmed that I was pregnant but the shocker was that I was four months pregnant.

As a woman, I immediately know that the pregnancy could not belong to Austin because we had not made love during the period I could have taken in.

I put one and one together and concluded that Martins must be responsible for the pregnancy and that is where my dilemma lies.

My husband knows that I am pregnant though he does not know how many months. He is very happy that I became pregnant shortly after our wedding but deep down, I know he is not responsible.

Now my problem is this: should I confess to Austin that the pregnancy does not belong to him? Should I tell Martins that he is the father of my baby or should I abort the pregnancy and tell my husband that I had a miscarriage?

Someone should help me out of this quagmire.


The teaser for the day was:

What do you think Favour should do in this situation she has found herself?

How Nigeria voted:

She should confess to Austin about the pregnancy - 44%

She should tell Martins that he is the one responsible for her pregnancy - 10%

She should abort the pregnancy before it gets to maturity - 28%

She should keep it a secret and deal with the situation later - 19%

How would you vote on this pathetic situation?
