This is my story
I visited my cousin at home and stayed with her and her children for three days. As at the time that i visited her she had two lovely children.
I had not met the father of her children personally because i was quite busy with my studies in the university. When i visited my cousin the father of her children wasn’t at home. His kind of work made him to stay as long as three months before coming home to his family.
On the third day that i already prepared to leave for Epe, in the morning the father of her children came home and i was pleased to meet him but he was just asking me ridiculous questions but eventually i left.
I didn’t take his erratic behaviour towards me serious until my late uncle who was the father of my cousin sent my younger cousins to come to his house immediately at Epe.
My cousin that i visited, the father of her children had called my uncle and told him that he met a man with the mother of his children in the flat he rented. That was to say my uncle daughter who is my cousin was cheating on him because a third party told him that they saw a man with the mother of his children.
As i got home to meet my late uncle, guess who i saw? i saw my cousin’s children father standing with his friend before my late uncle. My late uncle asked him that was this not the guy you saw with the mother of your children?He said yes. My late uncle called his mother who is late to tell this man and his friend who i was in the family.
This man and his friend prostrated and began to beg my late uncle, my grandma and I. My late uncle said if he had got married to my cousin he would have met me .
My take is this, we need to be careful with what people say about our spouses and ensure we take time to find out the truth. Many marriages or relationship have been destroyed by third parties that erroneously informed us of what were not true about our spouses.
