Today’s topic: She’s Pregnant with My Man’s Baby

Dear Shirley,

I am a in a hard spot. My husband of almost eight years just told me that he is having a baby. It is with a young lady from a fellow church. He wants me to stand by him and help him raise the baby. I want nothing to do with the baby, but I do love him. We have been together since high school and have four kids of our own. He wants to be there for her and is going to her appointments. I feel like she should keep playing her role and get a life, the mistress. She texts and calls all of the time, and says that I get on her nerves. It is taking the God in me not to beat the living **** out of her. It is tax time. Should I just take the money and leave or try to make it work? Fifteen years is a long time to just let go, but hey he did it first.

God in me
