I need your advice on this one. No insults please.
I was in a relationship with a guy whom I loved so much. We were both working and receiving salaries and contributing monthly to our joint account.
He helped me commit abortion almost every year, but kept preaching he loved me. He’s 2 years older than I am and a serious womaniser. At a point, I got tired and asked where the relationship was leading to. He sincerely said he wasn’t ready for marriage and won’t be in the next five years and I became devastated.
Later, I met a businessman who proposed immediately and I accepted. We started our marriage arrangements almost immediately. My ex then came into the picture and started crying; he said he loved me but was only pretending so I don’t take him for granted and that he requested the abortions because he wasn’t ready to raise a child yet. However, I was already pregnant for this other man who was ready to marry me.
Eventually, the marriage did not hold again due to some issues from my supposed in-laws. They said their senior uncle who was to lead them to my place died during the period. I finally gave birth through CS and they keep pleading that they would come and pay my dowry officially.
Then, I suddenly lost my father. At this time, my supposed husband was out of the country for business and didn’t attend the funeral as our tradition required of him. His father and uncles however came.
After my dad’s death, my uncles and other family members pressurized that we legalized our marriage but my supposed husband refused to return from his so-called business trip. He just came out of the blues about 2 months ago empty-handed, after 5 long stressful years of waiting for him and moved in with me. I am now the one feeding him, my two siblings, my little niece and our baby.
I go through stress on a daily basis at work, yet he wants sex all night. Since he has not been around for the past five years, I no longer love him. I hate him so much, but our child loves him so much it makes my heart bleed when I see them play together. I am tired of the whole situation and about to ask him to leave my house. Is this the right or wrong thing to do? What else can I do?
