My Wife Has Taken Her Son Back To The Father

When your mother tells you “this woman you want to marry, I’m really not sure oh” you have to listen to her. Don’t just brush it off but open your eyes wide to observe and confirm what her instincts are trying to tell you about your woman. I was 26, very young then and very in love that I brushed aside everything she was saying. My wife was 25 years at that time and she was pregnant when we met. She’d just come out of a nasty breakup and would sometimes call me and cry from 1 am to around 4. I loved her from the first day I saw her and wanted to be with her. I didn’t care that she was pregnant or that she was afraid to love again. The pregnancy was 7 months and though I was taking small pay as a teacher I still helped her anyway. She introduced me to her family and I told my mother about her. I was so ready to marry her that I lied to my family that the child was mine. I’ll try to be coherent but I’m breaking down. So she gave birth and my family went to name the baby. She convinced her side that she knew me and thinks maybe the child is for me. They were disappointed in her but believed I could be the father. We raised this boy together and now have 4 kids. I had never told this boy I wasn’t his father, I had never made him feel like he didn’t belong. His siblings were all shocked because to them he was my first son and their full brother, same mother, same father but their mother, she started communicating with the ex and broke the news to the boy without telling me. That’s why my son started misbehaving because he thought I had snatched him from the father and given him my name. Tina refused to talk and this resulted into a heavy argument. I came home from work in August and they had packed all his clothes and he’d gone back to the father. I didn’t ask my wife anything, “where is Kwaku?” No. I didn’t ask. I didn’t ask his siblings. I was just quiet. I created bank accounts for all them from day one of their birth and monies deducted from my salary straight into them. After he left, I went to close his account and invested it in my business. He’s 20 and my plan was to get him a car on work and pay to teach him to be responsible. The money for the deposit, I used it to travel when the restrictions were lifted. I know I was reacting out of pain but I was hurt and Tina didn’t see anything wrong with it. She only told me the father wanted his son back and there was nothing she could do about it. Well. 20 years he’s an adult, if he’s chosen to go back to the father who am I to say no? Schools reopened this year and a week to reopening, I saw Kwaku’s incoming call which I didn’t pick. I got home and Tina told me the boy called asking for his fees. I didn’t talk and went in. 3 days to reopening, he came there to greet me. I just went in and that’s when they realized there’s a problem. I’ve quietly suffered in this marriage but................................ Continue Reading Here:
