My Husband Insisted I Get Pregnant the Day after Our Wedding — My Heart Dropped When I Discovered His Real Reason

A day after their wedding, Elizabeth’s husband, Jake, insisted they try for a baby. At first, Elizabeth thought he was urging her out of excitement about starting a new life together. His true intentions surfaced when an email notification on his laptop caught her attention.
When I was a child, my grandmother always told me that life is full of surprises and that not every surprise is pleasant.
“Never forget the good days, and never let the bad days get you down, Liz,” she used to say.


I guess she wanted to prepare her little Elizabeth for the bitter moments of life, but I’m sure she had no idea that the worst day of my life would change my reality forever.
I can never forget the moment I found out what my husband, Jake, was planning behind my back. I met him at my new workplace, and we instantly became good friends.
We had only been dating for six months when we decided to get married because our connection was intense—or so I thought.

A day after our beautiful wedding, Jake brought up the idea of starting a family immediately. “Liz, I think we should start trying for a baby right away,” he said with a kind of urgency that surprised me.
I thought, “Okay, maybe he’s just super excited about starting our new life together.”
“Are you sure? We just got married,” I responded, trying to gauge his thoughts.


“Yes, absolutely,” he insisted. “There’s no better time than now. It’s the perfect way to begin our journey together.”
His words were filled with enthusiasm. However, something in his tone made me feel uneasy.
Despite my mixed emotions—confused yet flattered by his eagerness—I smiled and nodded, unaware of the real reason why he was so eager.

One afternoon, I was clearing the living room when Jake’s laptop chimed with a reminder. He was in the shower, so the persistent ping drew my attention.
I swear I wasn’t snooping. I saw the screen light up with a message preview that read, “Is she pregnant yet?”
I was shocked. It was from his ex-girlfriend, Claire.
My stomach turned as a chilling conversation unfolded in the email thread.
“Remember our deal, Jake. You need to get her pregnant within a year. If you don’t, you won’t be able to secure your inheritance,” Claire wrote in her email.
“Don’t worry, I’m on it. Everything is going according to plan,” my husband replied.


My heart pounded as I read their conversation. They discussed a cold, calculated strategy where Jake would marry me and then ensure an heir to claim a substantial inheritance from a distant relative.
To secure the inheritance, Jake needed to have a child within a year after his wedding. Besides, he was using me because his ex-girlfriend was infertile.
After getting his share, Jake planned to divorce me and spend his life with Claire.
“How could you?” I whispered, tears rolling down my cheeks.

Shaken by the discovery, I knew I couldn’t confront Jake without solid evidence. Over the next few days, I acted normal while secretly gathering all the proof I could.
Whenever Jake left his laptop unattended, I transferred copies of the emails to a USB drive. I also started recording his conversations on the phone with Claire.
I knew he talked to her whenever I went out.


One evening, while pretending to leave the house, I hid in our garage and recorded him talking to Claire on the phone, confirming their scheme.
“I just need a bit more time, Claire. Trust me, everything’s on track,” I heard him say, his voice low and urgent.
With the evidence secured, I consulted a lawyer.

“This is a serious matter, Elizabeth. We’ll need to handle this carefully to ensure you’re protected legally and financially,” he advised.
We strategized not only how to confront Jake but also how to expose his deceit in such a way that he couldn’t manipulate the situation.
The lawyer assured me that the evidence was compelling, and legally, Jake would be at a disadvantage once everything came to light.
We planned every step meticulously, preparing for the eventual showdown.

Jake’s family held a grand gathering every year, and it was a few weeks away. I planned to reveal his truth there.
It was the perfect opportunity because all his distant relatives, including the ones whose inheritance he was eyeing, would attend it.
In the following weeks, I pretended to be a loving wife who wanted to have a child with him. Meanwhile, I felt nervous as the day of the grand event approached.
On the event day, I stood up to make a toast after dinner.

“I want to thank everyone for the warm welcome into this wonderful family,” I began, my voice steady. “And to my dear husband, who has taught me so much about trust and love, I have a special surprise!”
With all eyes on me, I turned on the projector. The emails between Jake and Claire appeared on the screen, each word damning.
I then played the recordings of Jake’s phone conversations.

The room fell into stunned silence. Then, Jake’s grandmother stood up, her face flushed with anger.
“You are a disgrace,” she said firmly, her voice echoing in the room. “You will not receive a penny of anyone’s wealth!”
Claire, who I had invited as a friend’s plus one, stood up, her face pale. She slapped Jake across the face.
“I don’t want to see your face again!” she yelled and left.

As whispers filled the room, I looked at Jake, his face drained of color.
“And one last thing,” I added, my voice clear and strong. “I never intended to be pregnant so soon. I’ve been on birth control since discovering the truth.”
That evening, Jake’s plan was completely shattered, leaving him with nothing. His fraud had also invalidated our prenup.
Meanwhile, I walked out of the estate with my integrity intact and my future ahead of me.
