True Life Story: My Ex & Her Mother Are Trying Manipulate Me To Pay Her Bride Price
Hi Lively Stones,
I want to be guided by your readers who can share both experience or their knowledge of Law with me.
A month after I was deciding to take a new leaf (and focus on a serious relationship) in 2020, My fwb girlfriend whom we have ceased communication came to visit me, sparked the old flames and the s3x we had resulted in a pregnancy.
She and the mum planned for her to come live with me in a neighboring town to have the baby but I refused. So from the third month of her pregnancy I started sending money to her monthly until the birth time; which I paid 100% of the hospital bills.
After the birth (he’s 1 year and one month old) I’ve constantly sent them almost a fixed amount of money monthly, but they always find reasons in-between to ask for more money from me.
I just changed my job and I’m not being paid for 3 months beginning from January, this made me to send only half of the money for January, I tried to explain but they’re all mad at me and making threatening pronunciations.
I’m hoping to settle down in marriage soon and don’t want this whole drama to continue.
What are my options?
My mum is willing to take care of the child if they agree, my fiancé is also willing to have him live with us (though he’s just 1 year old). So it’s about anyone I agree to.
Out of rage, the mum mentioned that I shouldn’t send any money again that she can raise the child and the child belongs to them. She also mentioned to my mum that we will have to come see her dad’s people to pay for the child if my mum wants to raise the child.
I just want to know the options that will stop this whole drama. I have evidence of most of the money I’ve sent to them.
Thanks in anticipation.
