Dear LIB readers: He got another woman pregnant, should I stay with him?

From a female LIB reader
I am a lady of 33 years. My boyfriend of 4 years informed me last week that a woman he met in April says she's pregnant for him. He slept with her when he traveled outside Lagos for a Job in Port Harcourt, where he was for just three weeks. Why can't men stay without sex for three weeks? The woman is 38 years and desperate for marriage and has refused to abort or leave my boyfriend alone. The woman's mum has also been calling and begging and threatening him. He is begging me to forgive him and marry him ASAP. I am hurt and confused. What should I do? Should I stay with him or break up with him?
