Moral Dilemma Friday…

Posted in: Moral Dilemma Day

I was watching IACGMOOH the other night, when one of the contestants – a former talk show host – put this moral dilemma to the rest of the group:

A woman is having an affair with a man, and she gets pregnant. The thing is, she’s not sure whether the baby is her husband’s, or her lover’s. The problem is, she still loves her husband and she wants to make their marriage work. Her lover is a bit of a player and wouldn’t want to be saddled with the responsibility. What should she do? Should she come clean to the husband, or should she keep stum, hoping that the baby is her husband’s afterall?

I guess the right thing to do would be to tell her husband, but then if she loves her husband despite her affair, maybe telling him would mean the end of their marriage, something that she fears greatly?

What say you?
