My old friend Angela is on her fourth engagement now. She’s only been married once, and that didn’t last more than a year and a half, so she’s been engaged much longer than married, too. This surprises me, because she has done such awful things to her fiancées that I can’t believe they stayed by her let alone (one) married her.

Angela’s biggest offense against her potential future husbands is her constant, almost compulsive cheating. She’s cheated on all of her fiancées, and as far as I know they all know it.

I don’t know what it is about Angela, what it is that is so attractive and magnetizing that she gets away with this behavior and still keeps men around, but alas, I’ve watched it happen for years.

Cody was the third fiancée, the one who she was supposed to be having her third child with. Cody proposed to Angela while she was pregnant and they planned to have a wedding after the child was born, but once it was born, I didn’t think that there would be a wedding at all.

The day came when Angela was to give birth in a blow up pool in her living room with her entire family watching, including Cody, of course.

When the baby was born, it wasn’t Caucasian like Angela and Cody both are.

Everyone in the room had the shock of their lives when Angela delivered a mixed race baby right in front of her fiancee, who she had quite obviously cheated on.

Things could have gone awfully awry at that point. Cody could have become enraged and stormed out, but the opposite happened. Cody accepted that baby as his own, even though it clearly was not his own.

At first, Angela did quite a shameful thing and tried to pass the baby’s dark color off as a skin condition, but eventually she embraced her mixed race child just as Cody did, and I’m thankful to report that even though she and Cody didn’t make it, their child is thriving.

What would you have done if you were Cody?
