You might need popcorn and 3D glasses because this movie is too interesting to miss out on. When a girl is engaged to one man, pregnant by another and in love with number three, it’s indeed unique. 

Let’s call her Rita. This smashingly beautiful lady thought an engagement ring would end all her confusion and misery, but she was wrong.

The drama started two years ago, when Rita started dating Jimmy, her high school sweetheart. She had been in a three year relationship with one John, who was all loving but boring. John had old school trends, he was so reserved, never took her out nor did he compliment Rita on new hair styles.

Meanwhile Jimmy was the total opposite- a charming jolly young man who gave value to spending. He introduced Rita to the flashy life, went shopping for her every day and also provided emotional support. Meanwhile, Jimmy wasn’t the marriage type.

Rita played her cards well enough that no one knew about her infidelity. She faked upcountry trips just to spend a night at Jimmy’s; she faked sickness to share a week with John. She acted too faithful to be doubted. Rita kept an update on her lovers’ phone calls, messages and social network interactions.

While she considered breaking up with both of them, Mike surfaced. She added number three to the list; he finally had the character any girl would want in a man. He was caring but not so possessive. There was only one problem, Mike loved his drink. He would drown the weekend in liquor and resurface looking pathetic. But again, there was something about him that Rita loved. Among the three, she loved Mike.

Two months ago, Jimmy proposed. Rita was figuring out a way to break up with John and handle her feelings for mike. She then missed a period. The culprit was none other than John.

That confusion that gets me thinking if this was Kenya, she would happily take on the trio legally as a solution.

The logical thing to do would be to break the engagement but again, marriage is a dream come true for her. What will she do now? Your guess is as good as mine! Messed up world we are in, isn’t it?
