My name is Wena, married to American from California.We have two children together. When I was 17 we moved in together. He told me he never been married but has kids. However, he was married at the time we got married. We were legally married on Jan.07.2005. I have the papers from US embassy a legal capacity that he signed that he has never been married (Appendix A). When we were together I was able to talk of his children and the mother of his children. Which is Sharon and Shannon, Their mother’s name is Maria, First, Ididn’t know that she was the ex-wife until she told me that she is the 5th wife and I am the 6th. And she mentioned what their names are. She also mentioned that he has 12 kids already. I didn’t believe it because he kept telling me that Maria is a liar and she cheated on him. Later, Maria send me the copy of the Divorce paper (Appendix B). I found out that he was still married to Maria at the time he married me. I have a copy of the divorce paper and the Legal capacity (Appendix C) that he signed stating that he has never been married. Despite those facts, I still stayed with him. I took care of him, bathed him, clothed him, cooked for him, and fed him. He treated me like a nanny instead of wife. I was 8 month pregnant of my second daughter when he told me to leave our house. He told me“I was lazy” as his reason. At that time he hired a nanny. He said he found the girl lying down at the terrace so he adopted her. The girl was 15 or 16 years old when she became pregnant with his child. Now they have a daughter named Savana Mitchell.
