Man Dumps Wife Because Their Newborn Baby Would Keep Him Up At Night
60-year-old Atifa Ljajic and her husband, Serif Nokic, 68, from Serbia, had been praying for a baby for over 20 years.
At a time that they had lost hope, Atifa gave birth to a bouncing baby girl, but on the same day, her husband left them, claiming that raising a baby at his age would be damaging to his health.
It was the happiest day of Atifa’s life, but only for a few hours, on that very same day, her husband announced that he was leaving them, because raising a baby at age 68 would be detrimental to his health.
“Above all, I am a sick man, I am 68, I am a diabetic and I have a weak heart,” the 68-year-old told reporters.
“It is not easy not to sleep all night and to hear a baby’s cry. She got what she wanted, now she is happy”.
The couple are believed to have used an anonymous sperm donor, and Atifa says that inappropriate comments about this and constant pressure from Serif’s family in Turkey eventually made the man leave them. He couldn’t have picked a “better” time for it either…
The 60-year-old mother only earns a modest pension, and has to pay off a loan she took for her pregnancy treatments, but even though making ends meet will be tough, she is still in seventh heaven over finally having a child.
“I knew it would be a big risk at my age, but my only wish in my life was that I have a child, and it happened to me,” Atifa said. “I was not afraid of my life at all, God gave me courage. I have never felt better.”
“Whatever happens, if Serif stays or goes, I’ll fight to raise Alina as best I can. I will live for her alone,” the woman added. “I know it will not be easy, but I still think there are good people who can help me.”
