A wife is opening up about a betrayal that one would typically see on a soap opera, only it was real and it happened to involve her best friend whom she’s known since she was a toddler.
Claire Hitchen and Louise were practically sisters they were so close. They grew up together, ended up working in the same factory together, and became next door neighbors. “I trusted her with my life”, Claire said. Their bond was that serious.
Living and working in such close quarters meant Louise was always around Claire’s boyfriend Paul, but Claire never thought twice about their friendship. They went on double dates and Louise would always be there for Claire when she and Dave were fighting.
When Paul finally asked Claire to marry her, she asked Louise to be her maid of honor and all was well for two years. After the news that she was expecting their second son together, their relationship started to take a turn for the worse. Paul wanted desperately to have a daughter and when the nurse told them it was a boy, the look on his face was one an expecting mother never wants to see.
Claire and Paul eventually took a break from their marriage and agreed to reassess their feelings for each other after a few weeks. Claire’s best friend was conveniently breaking up with her boyfriend as well…only to hook up with Paul!
Soon after, Louise got pregnant with Paul’s baby and the couple was shocked to discover that the baby was going to be a boy!
Claire was still legally married to Paul despite all the tom foolery and stayed married to him for nearly 6 years after and claimed she couldn’t afford a divorce.
