A social media user has shared the screenshot of an e-mail of a woman complaining about how her mother had to pay child maintenance for the the children of her cheating unemployed husband.
The woman has been married for 29 years to a man that has been unemployed for 10 years. The man was secretly having an affair and fathered two sets of triplets.
Because he was married in community of property, his debts are transferred to his wife, making the innocent woman liable to pay for the maintenance of the children he had while cheating on her.
The poor wife is currently supporting two other children that her husband had out of the marriage because a maintenance order was granted against her.
South African social media users were horrified by the story and many advised the wife to rather get a divorce.
Read comments below:
The mother of the triplets took the man to maintenance court where they learnt he was unemployed.
