I’ve been married for fifteen years, and we have a fourteen-year-old child. We’ve never argued and have always had a strong mutual respect.
Our friends were amazed at how we managed to maintain such a close and loving relationship for so long, knowing that other families often face difficulties.
Maybe our marriage was blessed by God. Overall, we were completely satisfied and delighted with our life together.
That was the case until last week when my son approached me, and I could see he was worried. Naturally, I asked him what was going on.
He showed me a text message he had received from his father.
The message said, ‘Happy birthday, my dear. I’m sorry, but I won’t be able to come home earlier today.’ I was shocked, to say the least. How could this happen to us? Where did I go wrong? I never suspected that my husband had another child.
That night, after he went to bed, I checked his phone. I went through his messages and saw that he had been communicating with a girl. They had the same name as our son.
Was it just a coincidence that they shared the same name, or did he sign it that way? Reading their conversation, I realized it was indeed a girl, and she was talking to him about her school and her mother.
They exchanged pleasantries, and she called my husband ‘dad.’ Everything became blurry before my eyes.
Overwhelmed with grief, I rushed to the kitchen, filled a cup of water, and poured it over my husband. He jumped up and started yelling.
Then, I pointed to his phone, and after a moment of hesitation, he threw it against the wall. He refused to give any explanations. He packed his bags and left the apartment.
I don’t know what to do next. I haven’t initiated divorce proceedings yet, and he seems to believe I’ve accepted my fate. He even suggested showing me his other residence.
She was a nice woman, easy to talk to. As a second wife, she was perfect. On the other hand, I don’t want to live like a Swedish family.
Moreover, I don’t want to deprive my son of his father, as I don’t know what choice my husband might make. It’s either us or them.”
