I’m Pregnant and I Know Your Husband is the Father

pregnantA curious case came before the Reykjavík District Court this week.

A woman (A) was charged for writing an anonymous letter. The letter was sent to another woman (B) and claimed that A was having an affair with B’s husband. February 23 this year the letter arrived to B. It said in part:

„I and C [the husband] work in the same place, I am just in another division, but it so happens that I am pregnant and I know he is the father. There is no other possibility“.

The two women were both studying to become air traffic controllers. According to pressan.is, woman A wrote the letter to upset the other woman B before an important test.

This seems to have worked because B quit her studies shortly after receiving the letter.

Suspicion quickly fell on A and in court she admitted to having written the letter. She did not know the husband and gave no explanation for writing the letter. She claimed to have been suffering from after birth depression and that she had just lost her job in a bank.

The husband and wife asked for 850 thousand ISK (5.600 Euros, 7.200 USD) in damages, but go 200 thousand ISK (1.300 Euros, 1.500 USD). The judge said that for special reasons [not explained in the verdict] the husband and wife should have seen immediately that the letter was a fake.

Neither woman finished the studies.
