Nigerian Man Married Two Wives in Other to Have A Male Child, But Got 6 Daughters
This is the story of a Nigerian man who married two wives in other to have a male child, but he ended up having six daughters from the women.
According to the unidentified man, after marrying the first wife who gave him four daughters, his father forced him to get another wife in other to have a male child to continue his lineage since he was his only son.
However, the man who described himself as an unlucky man welcomed two more girls with his second wife.
He also revealed that his father who is now late almost forced him to have a third wife, which he refused.
Read the story which was shared by the Humans of Abuja.
‘I have lots of thoughts in my head. I used to be married to just one wife and I was happy with that. We got married and have 4 girls. My father who’s late now wouldn’t hear of it. He said I’m his only son and I needed to have a male child to continue his lineage. He was an educated man so he knew a woman has nothing to do with the sex of a child. He said, since I didn’t have any luck in giving my wife a male child maybe some other woman would.’
‘He encouraged me into taking a second wife which I did but I still didn’t have any luck with her. She gave me two female children. He almost made me take a third which I refused. Handling two women alone is difficult enough, a third would have been impossible.’
‘He passed away after a few years and no one bothered me about it again. Strangely, my mother doesn’t have any problem with I not having a male child. But it’s beginning to bother me these days. I’ve been thinking, ‘what if I died tomorrow, so no one would be here to continue our family lineage’. Maybe I should just adopt a boy child that would bear my name. But how would my wives take it? These are the things I think about and exactly what I’m sitting here and thinking about right now.’
