Man Full Of Regrets After Getting A Second Wife In Search Of A Male Child & Ended Up With 6 Daughters

A Nigerian man has expressed his frustration after marrying two wives in order to have a male child. The man said his late father encouraged him to get a second wife after the first wife gave him four girls and he did get a second wife.

His frustration increased after the second wife failed to get him a male child for the second try. The two daughters from the second wife have made it 6 female children, and what bothers him is dying without a son to continue his linage.

Read the man’s story below:

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.
