‘’In 2016, I travelled (with my first child) to the USA to have my second son. My husband stayed back because of work.
I stayed in the USA for about 4 months.
Barely 3 weeks after I travelled, my husband called to tell me that his female cousin (AMAKA is her name) was coming to our house for her holidays.
I insisted that she stayed in my in-law’s house, which is the next flat to ours, but he gave me every reason why she doesn’t have to stay there, then he said his decision was final.
There was little I could do from the USA. So, I yielded to his decision.
I believed they are cousins and can’t do anything silly. Although, I have heard that the girl was sleeping with one of her uncles… I just believed my husband can’t do such.
About 2 weeks after I returned (from my 4 months stay in the USA)…my phone rang. The fellow said he was Amaka’s boyfriend, he told me that my husband was sleeping with his girlfriend; he forwarded some chats (about what they called their ‘fine sex’) –to me.
I asked my husband but he denied it.
I asked Amaka, she said they ‘arranged the chats’ to make the guy jealous and leave her alone because he was becoming obsessed with her.
I almost believed her. Except that my husband later claimed that all that happened between them was just phone sex.
After many quarrels, I decided to forgive him and be happy, but I would always imagine that they had sex. And it kept haunting me.
My husband became much more loving after that, sometimes he would send me SMS saying I have such a forgiving heart and all.
That got me thinking that there was something (more serious) that he did with her.
For over one year, my hubby stopped taking Holy Communion, even when I would drop him at the church to go to confession, he would come back with excuses on why he didn’t do confession.
Recently, I had a bad dream about Amaka and how she took over my husband. In fact, that’s the second time I was having such dreams about her.
It was terrifying and got me thinking a lot.
I confronted my husband again…asking him the extent he actually went with his cousin Amaka.
Then I asked ‘’did you sleep with her’’ And he said yes!!!
I thought he was pulling my legs but he insisted he wasn’t.
So he narrated how they had sex several times in my house and how Amaka claimed she was pregnant and he gave her money for abortion. Amaka stayed for about 3 months or more in my house.
Parliament, this is a relation that bears the same surname with him. His first cousin!
I asked him why he is just opening up to me. He said that he went for confession in another parish and the Reverend father said he has to confess and seek my forgiveness too.
Every day, I imagine the sexual act between them (in my house) and I am disgusted about everything.
What should I do?
I am so devastated. I never believed he could do that to me. I have never cheated on him. It really hurts.
How do I trust him again? How do I deal with this?
My husband is 35 years old, I am 33, Amaka is about 24/25 years old. My husband is Human Resource personnel with a multinational in Lagos. I am employed too. Amaka just finished her NYSC. They are from Imo state. I am from Abia state. Our 5th wedding Anniversary was (early) this month.’’
