My boyfriend lied to me about being rich, I discovered that he is a poor man after he paid lobola


Dear Aunty Lisa

Firstly, I would like to say Merry Christmas to you aunty. I am a 26-year-old woman. I have been facing some very difficult days. I got married a year ago.

When my husband was proposing love to me, he gave me the impression that he was a (mbinga) very rich person. He gave me expensive gifts and drove very expensive cars. His parents have a house in one of the medium density suburbs Harare. I come from a very small town (Chinhoyi) and was really mesmerized by all the pomp and show off.

It was only after getting married to him for a few months that I realised he was totally dependant on his parents. He told me that he was a businessman. I then discovered that he drove a fleet of rental cars.

After marriage, I was shown a very harsh reality. He counted every penny and we never had enough money. I feel cheated.

What should I do?
