The child is not my son – Dominica News Online

Published

on


Bella,

I have a problem.  The child I fathered for 15 years may not be mine.

When I met my now wife, she was a bit promiscuous and I decided to settle down with her because she was just a victim of men who let her down.

She’s a wonderful person and she’s been a good wife to me.

I found it strange she got pregnant maybe the first few weeks after we started intimacy.

Anyway, as the boy started to grow, I realize his features don’t resemble mine.

He has nothing of me Bella and only my wife’s nose.

I hear people in the village make remarks but I didn’t bother.

Now it’s bothering me.  I want to bring up the matter with her but it could put my marriage under pressure.

Someone told me secretly take the boy for a paternity test but I don’t know.

Any advice?

Troubled Dad

You need to sit with your wife and address this very sensitive but serious matter.

Your concerns are legitimate but as you said, matters like that can put a strain on relationships if they aren’t handled properly.

Taking the boy for a paternity test without the knowledge of your wife could be the wrong approach.

Let it be something the both of you decide together because from your letter I don’t sense that there exists any contention between you two.

The thing about doubt and uncertainty is that it can cause you to live in misery for all your life. However, on the other hand, knowing (even if it hurts) offers a sense of peace and closure.

Let your wife know what your concerns are and move ahead from there.

Best,

Bella

DMA official sees potential for manufacturing of pharmaceuticals in Dominica

Executive Member of the Dominica Manufacturer’s Association (DMA), Dr. Gail Defoe, has highlighted the need for consideration to be given to the manufacturing of pharmaceuticals in Dominica in light of the significant challenge that viruses and bacteria now present to the world.

“The single biggest challenge in the world and our future would be viruses and bacteria,” Dr. Defoe said at DMA-organized press conference on Tuesday. “We have diseases far worse than the coronavirus…”

“What does that mean to manufacturers? And what does that mean for our countries?” Defoe asked about the coronavirus, which, over the past two and a half months, has killed hundreds of people, particularly in China, the country where the virus is reported to have originated.

According to the latest reports, some 75,303 people have been infected, 2012 have died and 15,126 have recovered.

Dr. Defoe explained that at present, Japan’s economy is said to be going into a recession because all the tourists from America are no longer going to Japan.

“How do we as a small island state ensure that within our economy we have the resources to combat these disorders and diseases?” Defoe asked. “We can do that through research and through manufacturing.”

She continued, “So as we think about manufacturing we have to broaden our thinking on not only being able to manufacture sweets and candies but especially pharmaceuticals, which we are rich in.”
