How My Wedding Ruined My Life-2 (Love Story)

In the first part of this story, Muda got married
amidst pomp, he later was sacked from his workplace and his wife blamed him for
all that happened…

“You told me you were up to it when I said I wanted a
society wedding,” the wife said.
Up to what? The initial plan was that we would have a
quiet wedding after which we can have an elaborate anniversary next year with
our baby,” Muda said angrily.
“So, why didn’t you tell my parents you wanted a quiet
wedding,” his wife asked.
Muda said, “I told you to tell them but your mum would
not let me express myself. Immediately I went to your parents to inform them of
our decision on the wedding date, she started talking about how she had dreamt
of your wedding and how she would invite so and so. She started making plans
for a big venue, called event planners and arranged for TV stations to cover
the event. I was dumbfounded and tried saying that we wanted something small
but she would not allow me talk.
“I thought she would bankroll all that she mentioned
but I was surprised when you asked that I pay for everything! “
“You should have declined and I would have gone back to
explain to them on why we needed a not-too-elaborate wedding ceremony. We would
not have landed into this financial mess,” his wife said.
The couple settled whatever score they had and thought
of how they would regain their status back.
“I think you should get a loan from my mum. She just
got her retirement benefits some weeks before our wedding and I’m sure she hasn’t
touched it,” Muda’s wife suggested.
They agreed that his wife should talk to her mum about the
loan. They got the loan and Muda was able to pay the rent. Two weeks after, Mr.
and Mrs. were broke again.
“You have to go to your friends and ask for help,” his
wife advised him.
He did. Taiyese was a bank manager and had been a
friend of Muda for many years.
“Old boy, I’m broke o,” Muda said.
His friend laughed and replied that it was expected for
newly-weds to be broke.
“But you have to get a job first for you to stablise
and take care of your pregnant wife,” his friend advised.
He got a soft loan from Taiyese. By the time he got
home and offset some debts, they were broke within two weeks.
Muda was in a dilemma. He could not apply to any bank
due to the way he was sacked from his former place of work. He could not be
described as a businessman because he spent his post-graduate days as a banker—he
never did any other job.
“You have to try a trade since you aren’t getting anything
currently,” his wife said. They thought over what he would do and they
concluded that he should delve into fashion business. Since he was a banker, he
would be making shirts and nice suits from Aba.
Muda started the business and he frequently travelled
to Aba in Abia State. His young wife had to move to her parents’ house because
of her condition.
In no time, his shirts and suits became a must-have
among bankers. Gradually, he started making profits and was able to refund the
loan from his mother-in-law.
Their baby, a boy, came some months after. Muda became
comfortable and on one of his trips to Aba, he met a lady called Chika.
Quite curvy and busty, he started putting up with her
anytime he travelled to the east. In no time, they became an item in Aba. His
tailors and other artisans called her his Mrs. He thought he was safe dating
Chika in Aba since his family was in Lagos.
Then, he got a surprise that he never bargained for in
