A Nigerian man has been left devastated after discovering just after marriage that his newly wedded wife is pregnant for her lover.
The marriage of a couple simply known as Johnson and Lizza is now in danger following the discovery by her husband that his wife was already pregnant for her lover before he married her, PM Express.
Johnson (surname withheld) is now in a state of dilemma as he has spent huge sums of money to marry Lizza only to find out now that she is already six months pregnant before he engaged her and brought her to Lagos.
The marriage took place in Onitsha, Anambra State around June this year before the man brought the wife to White sand area in Isheri Oshun area in Lagos after the marriage. The man had no sexual contact until after he performed the traditional marriage and church wedding in Onitsha.
However, when they came to Lagos she announced her pregnancy to her husband and they went to a private hospital where doctor confirmed that she was six months pregnant. Trouble started when they calculated the time they really slept together and he discovered that Lizza was already pregnant before they got married.
It was gathered that they had return to General hospital at Isolo to re- confirm the pregnancy and months, it was the same six months. They became more confused which seemed to endanger their young marriage.
The wife claimed that she had a lover before she met Johnson but she had to sever the relationship when Johnson proposed to her. She said she had her normal menses and did not have any sign of pregnancy before they got married. She wants the husband to accept the pregnancy because both cannot really explain what happened.
But the husband was said to have developed cold feet since they discovered this and was thinking of divorce which he cannot get easily under Catholic Church where they wedded. The matter has been taken to a Catholic prayer ministry priest at Oke Afa in for intervention and resolution.
