My boyfriend ran off with my SISTER –  I'd happily be single forever now with my 7 kids | The Sun

A MUM whose fiancé ran off with her sister while she was pregnant with their fourth child reckons she could stay single for the rest of her life.

Laura Martin, 34, told four years ago how mechanic Rikki left her for younger sibling Caitlin after the pair embarked on a secret affair.

Though she’s forgiven Caitlin,the Fife-based carer isn’t prioritising her love life anymore.

She says: “It hasn't put me off dating, I'd happily date as not every person is as bad as what Rikki was.

“But I've chosen to be on my own, work through the trauma of what we went through with my kids and focus on what's important.

“In hindsight, although I wouldn't say it put me off dating, I'm just not ready to enter the dating world as of now and I'm so much happier on my own than I ever was and ever could have been with Rikki.

“I had a very short relationship about eight months after splitting with Rikki and it lasted three months so I've been happily single for four years or so now.

“I can't speak for how everyone feels but I’ve found being on my own and doing my own thing when I want with nobody to answer to very therapeutic.

“I can see myself being happily single more than actually ever wanting to be with someone who drains me of my whole energy and confidence again.”

Caitlin and Rikki have since got married and have two kids of their own – meaning the sisters' children are both half-siblings and cousins.

Laura had initially turned to her younger sibling for comfort after being dumped by Rikki before realising the awful truth when the pair, who have a 17-year age gap, went public on Facebook.

The mum of seven adds: “It’s just impacted on my outlook that you don't need to be in a relationship with someone to be happy.

“And it took being in the wrong relationship to find that because I'm mature enough to know there's people out there who don't just bring toxicity to the table.

“That would mean me potentially opening myself up to wanting a future relationship, when in 15 years I could be on a beach happily single and loving life doing my own thing.

“I know what sounds more appealing to me.”
