Subject: I’m MF’ing Tired
Dear Steve and Shirley,
I am a 32-year-old single mother with one child and I’m pregnant with my second child. I’m pregnant by my best friend, who happens to be married. We’ve been friends with benefits for almost to 10 years and his wife thinks we’re just best friends, so she’s accepted me as part of the family. She’s aware that I’m pregnant but thinks it’s my ex-boyfriend’s baby. I’ve told her husband that it’s time for us to stop messing around and be serious now because we have a baby on the way. I told him that he needs to tell his wife before the baby is born. I want my child to know his father and have a relationship with his father’s two kids. When we found out I was pregnant, he panicked and asked me to terminate the pregnancy. I refused to do that and when we found out it’s a boy, he was overjoyed. The problem is, every time he’s about to tell his wife, some life-changing event happens with her. The first time he tried to tell her, she had a minor car wreck and had to wear a neck brace for a month. He said that he didn’t want to tell her while she was in pain. Three weeks after that, she got Covid-19 and spent a couple of days in the hospital, so he didn’t tell her then. Fast forward to last week… He was supposed to tell her and he said she passed out at work and her doctor said she may have had a mild stroke. Listen, I don’t want to kill the woman by telling her about our baby on the way, but I’m MF’ing tired of all of her problems. He could be lying to stall me out, so I’m tempted to call her myself. Steve and Shirley, is he full of BS or what?"
