Dear Aunty Aurora,
I will try to keep my story short. I met this guy sometime ago and he managed to fool me into thinking he was something he wasn’t. I thought he had a job, a home and was financially okay, but my worst nightmare just came to pass.
I found out that I was pregnant and told him thinking the next thing would be to start planning marriage but that was when he confessed that he had been lying all along. Simply put, he has been impersonating someone else all this while and he doesn’t have a penny to his name. I feel so stupid that I didn’t read between the lines all this while, but now that I am pregnant, what do you suggest I do?
Though I do feel bad for you, I believe now that the deed is done there is no point listing all the things you should have done differently. Now that you are expecting a baby, your situation requires a more sense of responsibility from you and your baby’s father. If he didn’t have a job before, now is the time to get one.
If you didn’t as well, start thinking of things you can do while your pregnancy won’t hinder you. Marriage may not be a solution for you at the moment, so think more in the line of providing what your child needs and start thinking of how you can provide them. Aunty Aurora.
