Getting married to the person you love should be one of the happiest days of your life. But for one young man, it turned out to be one of the worst. He wrote into an agony aunt column in his local Texas newspaper and bared his soul. Wishing to remain nameless, the man and his story have gone viral.
A devoutly religious man, he had vowed not to make love to his wife until after they were married. On the night of the wedding, as they lay down together, his wife broke the news… She couldn’t make love with him. She didn’t tell him why. But he had his suspicions.
“We exchanged vows in a colorful wedding a few weeks back, even though I highly suspected that my wife was already pregnant with another man’s baby, but I married her anyway…”
The heartbroken new groom goes on: “My suspicions became true when we recently visited a family doctor for routine check-ups. The doctor said she was four months pregnant. My Christian values ensured that I and my wife did not engage in sexual activities before tying the knot, therefore cementing my belief that she cheated on me.”
“I have since been heartbroken because I feel that I was cheated into marriage.”
“I am seriously contemplating opting out even after sacrificing time during courtship and spending on a costly wedding.”
“Despite caring for my wife I cannot forgive her because there is no trust in our relationship.”
“Much as I deeply cared for her, I doubt whether I can forgive her as it shows that there is absolutely no trust in our relationship.”
What do you think the guy should do? Alright, the man has to follow his own heart… But if it were you? What would you do? Leave the woman who betrayed you and start again with someone who loves and respects you? Or be the bigger man, forgive your new wife and raise the child as your own?
