True Life Story: Hiding An Abomination To Save My Marriage
Hello Lively Stones,
My husband did something abominable and he is begging me to keep it a secret. To me, I feel like keeping it a secret, he may do it again. Besides, I do not want to be a part of his son, covering it up will mean I am supporting his actions but if I expose him, my marriage might as well be over cos he will never forgive me.
My husband used to tell me about his favorite cousin that lives in America. I never met her but she calls everyday. She is married to an American. My husband told me how close they wee growing up. When my husband travelled last year, he stayed in her house in Atlanta.
This year, she told my husband she was coming for summer. My husband made me prepare for her coming. She came in 2 weeks ago. I accepted her like my own cousin too cos I see how close she and my husband are.
So, she came around and stayed in a hotel before moving to see her folks in Benin. She’s supposed to go back by the end of the week so she decided to spend the rest of her stay with us. I cooked and welcomed her into my home. I had heard so many nice stories about her and I was happy to finally meet her in person.
Last Friday, we all had a sumptuous dinner I prepared, catfish pepper soup with drinks. She specially asked for it and I delivered it. After eating, we watched some movies on Netflix. I got sleepy after a while so o slept off on the sofa. Hubby asked me to go to the bedroom and sleep. I did.
I slept for like 2 hours and suddenly work up. The sound of the TV was still on. I thought they were still watching movies cos my husband was not beside me in bed when I woke up. I went to ease myself and felt thirsty too. So I went for a drink of water.
I past the sitting room to the dinning to get water and noticed Hubby or his cousin were not in the sitting room watching TV yet the TV was on. I put off the TV and was about to walk back to my room but I caught some moaning sounds and stopped and listened. It’s was coming from the guest room.
Still with sleepy eyes….I walked to the guest room door…and heard clear sounds of s3x …I pulled open the door without thinking…and saw an abomination. My husband and cousin were f*cking. They were so engrossed they didn’t even notice me. I had to scream for them to realize.
Mhnnnmmmm….I cannot explain all that happened after . Fear, disbelief, shock…all those emotions filled me. I started crying. Husband had gotten himself, put on his boxers and kneeling down to beg. Aunty Mrs. Cousin just sat on her bed with the duvet and was looking like nothing happened.
All I kept saying was why…why…why…my husband kept saying sorry…please forgive me…please cover my shame. Meanwhile…the cousin said please stop crying…your husband and I are in love but we cannot marry because our families will not agree.
From her statements, I realized this was not the first time. Hubby told me not to listen to her but he didn’t deny that this was not the first time. I cried all night….I threatened to leave the marriage…hubby kept begging but cousin was not remorseful for once.
So by morning….I told husband to send the evil cousin away. He could not until I threatened to leave the house with my kids. It took husband almost 3 hours to convince his cousin to leave our home. He took her in his car and took her to a hotel. He didn’t come back until almost 7pm. I could not talk to him or face him. I was too shocked, sad and angry.
On Sunday morning, I could not go to church. Husband continued to beg. He said he and his cousin explored as kids, had s3x when she came to their house for holidays. That she took his virginity. That he had gotten over her but She still has feelings for him and he got seduced by her that Friday night after I left to sleep. That she aroused all the urges that in him that he had forgotten about.
My husband is saying I should forgive him and cover his shame…that he will never do it again but I told him if we cover it…he will do it again when another opportunity comes. My heart is heavy. I told my husband I cannot promise to cover his shame cos he has covered it for so many years until now. So it’s obvious he may not stop even though am now aware.
My husband got upset and said if I say anything he will never forgive me. How can he say that after hurting me like this? After committing such an evil like incest with his blood cousin, his father’s elder sister’s daughter?
Please I need advise on how to go about this…I cannot just forgive him like this….and I cannot keep this secret, will that not mean I am condoning their sin? I need your advise on what to do.
