I need your advice on this issue causing great turmoil to my heart: my husband is having an affair with our tenant!
Should I continue or forget about the marriage? I am 31 and my husband 51. We have two kids aged 2 years old and 6 months old. My husband has been jobless for 6 years now. So, I have been solely financially responsible for the upkeep our household, yet my husband does not appreciate all my efforts.
When I lost my job in 2015, that same week I lost my Job was when I discovered that my husband has been having an affair with our tenant who is a single mum of two.
Our tenant called me one day and had the effrontery to tell me that she wants to settle the disputes between my husband and I. She called me another time again to say that she overheard me insulting her in my room. I was pregnant then and she attacked me with a hot iron.
I reported her to my husband and he supported her. He always takes sides with her. Now, the whole neighbourhood knows that my husband is having an affair with my tenant. My husband even gave her our unused tiles and unused chair to her for her shop. Meanwhile, out of his little income (pension), he doesn’t feed us but he can help an outsider.
He always keeps late nights, does not care for us and we hardly speak to each other. Since 11 months now, we have not had any sex. He complains and insults me about everything I do.
Please advice me. What should I do? I want to live and also thinking perhaps I should wait till whenever our tenant moves out. Please note that our tenant is not the only woman my husband is having an affair with. He has several others.
