An unfortunate Singaporean man was dealt a double blow when he married his wife to take responsibility for the child she was carrying, only to realize that the child was not his to begin with!
Despite this, he still has to pay maintenance fees for the child under the Women's Charter even though the child is not biologically related to him. This is because he married his wife after the baby was born, even though he did not realize at the time that the child did not belong to him.
According to a netizen who shared this man's unfortunate story, the father of the child is a suspected ex-boyfriend of the mother, who has since flown to the US and is now uncontactable. The wife, despite carrying out a great sham against her now husband, has demanded that her husband pay her maintenance for the child.
The man is now unsure of what to do as there is no legal recourse to his problems.
