They Were Married for Two Decades When He Found Out the Truth About His Wife
He had no inkling that she wasn't who she said she was
In 1993, Jan met a woman named Monica in Antwerp; Monica was hired as the live-in nanny to Jan’s sister. He thought that she was “very beautiful and feminine,” but he wondered why she was no good at ironing.
Still, the couple fell in love and tied the knot. Jan left his first wife for Monica. She was 27 at the time, and she said that she didn’t want to have children with the 44-year-old man which he was okay with.
Jan said, “Over the years she said she was taking the pill. She was always a good mother to my children, and also a fantastic cook, though we wasn’t that great at cleaning and ironing.”
They remained married for nearly two decades, but their relationship suffered in the last two years.
Jan explained that Monica was clearly losing interest in him, saying, “She would wear tiny tops that revealed a lot of flesh and had more than 100 pairs of shoes. I also caught her ogling pictures of young men on the Internet.”
That would be hard for any partner to bear, but fate intervened, and Jan learned that Monica wasn’t the woman he thought she was after a cousin of hers came to visit. Jan said, “I didn’t suspect a thing until a cousin of hers came to visit and let something slip.”
