Delivery man works 16 hour day for his family, realizes wife is cheating on him, son not biologically his, Singapore News
He was shocked when he discovered that his newborn son had a different blood type from him and his wife. But when a doctor told him it could happen, he didn’t think too much about it.
But the reality turned out to be much harsher – the 27-year-old known as Lin recently discovered the baby, now 10 months old, was not his biological child.
This food delivery man in Singapore told the Shin Min Daily News yesterday (July 30) that in March this year he discovered his 29-year-old wife often left home early and didn’t come back until late at night.
In May, he said he also saw her hugging another man. The couple had been married for almost 10 years and had three children.
At the suggestion of a relative, Lin took a paternity test in June for his youngest son. The truth made him waver.
During a fight, he said his wife had admitted the boy was not biologically his, but that her lover had “nothing to do” with it.
The betrayal was particularly deep; Lin told the Chinese daily that he worked 16 hours a day, from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m., to support the family. He earns between $6,000 and $7,000 a month and gives most of it, about $5,000, to his wife, keeping the rest for food, gas, cigarettes, and the occasional lottery ticket.
He said he bought property and employed a housekeeper for the family. Last year he said he paid about $80,000 a second-hand seven-seater vehicle to make it easier for his wife to send the children to school.
He added: “My wife works in accounting. She takes care of household expenses as well as home and car loan payments. I love her and trust her a lot. I give her all my money and I I have very little savings.”
The maid told him about the case
Lin told Shin Min that he traveled overseas last month to settle some business and received a message from his maid informing him that an unknown man was spending the night at their house.
She also took a photo of the man, adding that she had informed his wife’s mother. Lin then called her mother-in-law, who confirmed that she had met the other man but didn’t have the heart to tell Lin about it.
Lin’s wife said she now wanted a divorce and wanted their marital home as well as custody of the three children.
But despite everything that has happened, he hopes that she can come back to him.
He said: “She complained to me that I was always working and not spending time with her and it was like we had no husband at all. But we have three children and a home loan. I told her that I wanted to give her and the kids a good life. I thought she would understand. However, things turned out that way.
When he asked her why she wanted to leave, she allegedly told him that they were no longer communicating.
Lin added, although he discovered that his youngest child was not his biologically, he still loves his son very much.
“For the past month, my wife hasn’t really looked after him. I’ve been rocking him, feeding him milk and soothing him in the middle of the night. That’s why our bond is especially strong. If my wife insists on leaving, I’m ready to raise the three children.”
