A Nigerian man has shared a shocking story of how his wife lied about her age only for him to later discover she was far older than him.
The 32-year-old man identified on Twitter as @lionofjada revealed that he married his wife in 2012 and before they tied the knot, she claimed to be 29 years old.
However, his wife’s cousin was the one who eventually spilled the truth years later as she revealed that the woman he married was actually 43 years old.
He was left heartbroken and devastated but he took the decision to divorce her and raise their daughters alone.
Read his write-up;
”Since everyone’s spilling, let me say it today.
The woman I married in 2012 told me she was 29. Found out later that she was 43. I was 32. Her cousin had a crush on me and told me her true DOB.
I left her and SM women blamed me for it. “Abandonment” was what they called it.
Some years later, I met someone I felt I could marry. Unknown to me, her wedding date was already fixed. She just wanted to keep billing me in preparation 4 her wedding and her friends covered for her. Found out two weeks to her wedding. I moved on with no complaint.
When people complain and take sides based on gender, let’s never forget that evil knows no gender. There is nothing men have done that women have not done. In fact, women are way more brutal when on a mission to destroy.
They embellish stories, frame you up.
Since then, I am focused on raising my daughters. Marriage is overrated. If yours is good, stay in it. If you are not lucky, try again or stay single. 7 billion people in the world, we cannot all have the same destinies.
@DokunOjomo this is my reality. You wondered why I have daughters and not married.
Lest I forget: she had lied, unprovoked, about virginity until wedding night. I wasn’t looking for a virgin so there was no need to lie about it. Moment of truth, she broke down in tears and claimed that some guy in Masaka, Abuja, raped her. I forgave that red flag. Big mistake.
Since everyone is asking how come I didn’t “feel” the difference:
Same question I’ve had to answer a million times. She did look slightly older than 29. But I’d never imagine that anyone would lie about something as simple as AGE to a life partner. Her elder brother didn’t even look 40. Her family layer said they thought I knew and accepted.
For fact checking, @lahtyno was with me ALL THROUGH that phase. From wedding to depression to break up and frame ups and all. He was there. He could paint a more vivid picture.”
