My name is James. I am 38 years old. Happily married with three kids; a boy and 2 girls. Jennifer, my wife, has been a loving and supportive wife since we got married 8 years ago. I work as a Site Manager in one of the biggest construction companies in Nigeria.
One fateful afternoon, while in my office, a lady and a boy paid me an unscheduled visit. Immediately the lady walked in, I recognized her to be Ebube; my girl friend during my NYSC service in Umuneva, Enugu State.
I was posted to Umuneva -Enugun North LG, Enugu State, for my NYSC in 2002. The people there were hospitable. The next building to where I stayed was Ebube’s house; an OND 2 accounting student. She happened to be an intelligent and hilarious lady. We became friends and gradually friends became lovers. The end of the service was a painful departure for us. I remembered very well that we made love as a memorable good bye gift, then I went back to Abuja.
Email was the only medium through which we were communicating. None of us could afford Mobile Phone and Sim Card as at that time. After sometimes, I wasn’t getting reply to my mails. A year later, I traveled back to Umuneva to check on her but she and her parents had relocated.
14 years later, Ebube appeared in my office with a boy she called my son. At first I thought it was one of her rib cracking jokes, but DNA confirmed it. Nonso is truly my biological son. Nonso has been staying with his grandmother. It is such a long story but at the end, I accepted the paternity of the boy.
In my family, we have a believe that no child should live outside his/her parents’ house. I will like my Son to come and live under my roof so that I can give him the very best, but it will not be that easy. I should probably be expecting war because my wife won’t take it likely. She is the type that hates rivalry or competition.
Please I need your advice. I love my wife, I don’t want my marriage to break and at the same time I want to take good care of my Son.
