From a male reader:
Early last year, I met my former class mate on my way from work. We greeted very well because during our school days at the University, he was a very good friend of mine. From the look of things, he was doing very well for himself. He was driving a very clean Lexus jeep. He gave me his address and I later went to his house. We had a very long talk. i explained to him how life has been unfair to me. I told him that I am now a teacher and that our pay is miserable. He smiled and asked me if I had any other thing besides teaching which I wanted to do. I was really happy that he asked. I told him of my intentions to someday go into importation business. I told him that I already knew how to do it but I had no money. He promised to help me with some cash.
I was very happy. He gave me 10k for transport back home. I went back home and explained my discussion with my friend to my wife. She was so happy. She suggested that I invite him over for dinner. I thought it was a good idea, so I invited him. This is where the whole conflict started. My friend came to my house for dinner. He kept on telling me how pretty my wife is. And how lucky I was to have her. I was glad that someone appreciates my wife's beauty.
Three days later, my friend came over to my place and bought some designer clothes for my wife. A week later, he bought her an iPhone. Since that time, it has been one expensive gift to another. Each time I remind him of the promise he made to me, he will tell me that he is still arranging the money. It has been almost two years now. The last one he did which got me worried was that he bought a car for me wife. I had already told my wife to stop accepting the gifts , but she said that I was enemy of progress. I don't know what to make out of this whole situation. I am even beginning to suspect my wife.
Please I don't know how to handle this situation. I don't want to lose my wife. I still don't want to lose the possibility of my friend helping me with my business. Please advise me on how to handle this matter.
