I am in my early thirties and I have a girl I hope to settle down with. However, there is this other girl in my office who is a close relative of my Managing Director and she insists on being my wife despite knowing that I’m engaged. My MD is aware and in full support of her action. My Job is on d line.I need your advice.
I can only imagine your dilemma. You’re faced with either the option of losing the one you love or losing your means of livelihood. However, let’s put aside the issue of your fiancée for now because there’s much more at stake here.
If you succumb to the pressure to marry your boss’ relative, it means that you would have succumbed to being blackmailed for the rest of your life. That woman will be in charge of your life for as long as you work for her relative. She will use your fear of losing your job against you and she will use it to control you. Do you really want to spend the rest of your life as a prisoner?
The most important thing a man has is his dignity and his pride and if you sell that, then you have nothing. I know that doing what’s right in this circumstance will be difficult but you have to do it anyway and hope for the best. I’m sure things will work out better than you imagine. Just have faith. I wish you the very best.
