•For 17 yrs I thought my wife was an angel only to discover she’s dubious, promiscuous —Man
My husband and I started from the scratch and gradually fortune smiled on us. We both ran a joint account and built a house. We lived happily until his twin sister made her way into our lives. She started dictating the tune. She never gave up until she talked my husband into taking another wife. Then hell was let loose.
“For almost two decades, I lived in a world of fantasy. I believed I was married to an angel and counted myself the luckiest man on earth. The scales suddenly dropped from my eyes and truth stared me clear in the face. I discovered that my wife of seventeen years was nothing but a slot.”

“I trusted him and gave him my totality but he ended up disappointing me.
“We started our marriage with nothing. We started from the scratch believing that we would make it like others.
“We believed and trusted in each other and ran a joint account where we were both keeping a part of the little amount we were both earning.
