Help! “My Wife Has Taken My April Fool’s Joke All Wrong”
My wife has taken my April Fool joke very seriously. I decided to pull a prank on her yesterday, and it’s almost going out of hand.
It was in the morning, and I knew she wasn’t yet aware that it was April Fool’s Day. So I told her that I had a confession to make to her and it has been eating me up. I told her that I have a child outside our marriage. That I have a son who’s around 12 years now. That I had the child before I met her, but I couldn’t tell her because I didn’t want to lose her.
She was speechless but I could tell she was shaken. She searched my eyes to know if I was joking, but I maintained my seriousness. She calmly started asking me questions to know whether I was being real, but I was already prepared for any question. By the time she was through interrogating me, she broke down in tears.
I continued with the joke, and I told her to please forgive me for not telling her all this while. She believed everything I said and by the time I told her it was April Fool’s joke.
It was too late. She was inconsolable, and she told me it wasn’t a joke, because she knew I was telling her the truth. She said she had always had the feeling that I had a child because she saw it in her dream before we got married.
To cut it short, right now she’s mad at me…and she has threatened to leave with my 6 months old daughter and abandon our 3 year-old marriage. She has already called her mum and sister and narrated the whole thing.
So, guys please I need your help right now. My own April Fool prank has gone all wrong. What can I do?
