This Reddit story that would be more at home in a soap than real life and comes from a woman who desperately needed advice about her cheating husband.
A Blessing in Disguise, or Not
Kate, a female in her late 20s, is pregnant with her husband’s child. They’re high school sweethearts, have been in love for thirteen years, and have spent thousands on pregnancy treatments.
Her Twin Is Pregnant Too!
However, this woman’s situation is complicated because her sister is also pregnant with her husband’s twins!
Discovering the Affair
She discovered her 32-year-old husband’s affair with her 35-year-old sister two months ago.
He begged for forgiveness, offering her gifts and promising to buy her an apartment and a new car.
All Love is Lost
The second he told her, Kate lost all feelings for him – who could possibly blame her? To say she was devastated is an understatement.
Kate was ready to divorce him until she made a shocking discovery – she was pregnant, and her husband was ecstatic at the news.
They’ve been trying to get pregnant for over NINE years – for her, it couldn’t have come at a worse time, but her husband saw it as a fresh start for them.
Kate cannot afford to raise a child on her own her husband has always provided financial support for her. She has never had to struggle on her own – she didn’t go to college because she never thought she wouldn’t need to work.
Worried for Her Baby
She is now pregnant with this child, and she does not know how she will provide for the baby if she leaves her husband.
To top it off, her pregnancy is high-risk, and she will need a lot of medical support during and after birth, which neither she nor her parents can afford.
She’s Keeping Her Baby
Abortion is completely off the table for this woman. While it’s illegal in her state, she can’t kid herself – she’s wanted this for so long. While her pregnancy has brought her joy, it’s also brought a lot of grief.
In Need of Advice
Kate is seeking advice as she is not sure what to do.
Her husband is promising her things but on the terms that she doesn’t divorce him. So she’s unsure if she can take the apartment and medical care he’s offered and still divorce him. She’s meeting a lawyer tomorrow to get a better understanding of what she can and can’t do.
All About the Family Image
Her husband’s parents are fully aware of the situation. While they were initially furious with him, the mother-in-law is now more focused on her soon-to-be grandchildren, and the father-in-law is more focused on their family’s image.
Showing True Colors
Her husband has already seen a lawyer to talk about giving up his parental rights, and he’s been begging her sister to get an abortion ever since he found out about her pregnancy. He doesn’t want anything to do with his twins inside Kate’s sister, regardless of how his wife’s pregnancy goes.
Kate is 14 weeks pregnant and cannot get a divorce before the birth. She does not want to be in between places with a newborn while recovering from birth, and the stress will be too much for her.
She Has No Choice
Kate has not talked to her sister since the confrontation two months ago – neither has her husband! Kate is not staying with her husband because she wants him to love her but because she literally has nowhere else to go.
Being a housewife is the only thing she is good at, and she’ll gladly live a fake life if it means her child will be cared for.
Greedy and Selfish
She knows her husband is greedy and wouldn’t support her in any way if it didn’t improve his image.
Divorcing his pregnant high school sweetheart is definitely not a good look. To him and, more importantly, to his father, the family image is everything.
All About Appearances
If he abandoned their child, his parents would disown him, and he would lose his job as he works for Kate’s dad’s company. Kate needs sturdy support, and he’s all she has.
A Bleak Situation
Kate’s situation may seem bleak, but she is determined to do what is best for her child. Her husband is a real piece of work, cheating on his wife with her own sister and begging for her forgiveness.
She is in a tough spot with no easy answers – her life was perfect until it wasn’t. While she needs to do what’s best for the child, she also needs to look after herself. All we can do is hope that her husband and sister get the karma they deserve!
Redditors were aghast at this story. They couldn’t believe the actions of both her husband and sister!
One user said, “He’s willing so quickly to abandon the children he made with your sister, what makes you think he won’t do the same with your child?”
