How many children must there be for a family to be happy? Someone has seven children and there is joy in their eyes, and for someone even one child is too much. Most choose the golden mean: two or three children.
Odesa residents Sergey Semenov and Oksana Kobeletskaya were just like that.
A picture of their family idyll: mutual support and understanding, sincere love and tenderness. Their first daughter Alisochka was happy when the prospect of a new sibling appeared on the horizon. The father already dreamt of how he would proudly lift his newborn son after nine months…
When the couple received the results of the first examination, they already doubted the strength of their seemingly unshakable marriage.
The surprised look of the doctor who performed the ultrasound and the news that Oksana was carrying five children sʜᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ not only the father, but also the medical staff of the hospital. The news quickly spread throughout the city. Concerns about the mother’s state of health and the possibility of the full development of all ᴇᴍʙʀʏᴏs were added to her husband’s doubts about whether it was worth carrying all the children…
A believing woman categorically insisted on preserving the lives of all her children who were not yet born. Sergei could not cope with such a shock and decided to leave the family, leaving his wife to deal with the problems on her own.
But he seemed to change his mind soon: After all, the years of a happy marriage bound him to something. When the man returned to his wife for a moment, the shaky balance seemed to be restored.
The birth of five healthy children at once became a sensation and forced the city administration to hand over the keys to a 6-room apartment to a large family. The joy of new housing and help from strangers was a huge support for the young couple. But not for long.
Diapers, endless chores, nightly “concerts” of newborns who require constant attention and all this five times! Women in such situations seem to hold an inexplicable power of maternal instinct. They have no time for whims and complaints. They have children. Men are a different matter. Not everyone can cope with such stress.
Sergei proved to be a true master of his word: he gave it and took it back in six months. And he left the family completely and irrevocably, filed for divorce and refused to pay child support for six children. Oksana has no time to cry over spilled milk and despair. Good people helped her cope with problems, created a common fund for this family and supported her.
Transporting children to kindergarten, to a clinic or on trips is facilitated by a donated minibus for a single mother.
In addition, she has become a popular blogger and shares her motherhood experiences on the Internet.
And this wonderful, friendly, happy and secure family lives in joy, love, mutual understanding and support. Without the cowardly husband Sergei.
