Thank you for your vulnerable appraisal of the situation.
I was the wife.
I sent the other woman who knew about me a letter stating some of the same points you made here, but she blew it as I just didn’t understand the mysterious love they have for each other that can’t be reined in.
The relationship with him is over for me now. I have had enough but I still hurt over the part she played in it too. Both of them knowingly betrayed and injured me — so your article has gone a long way in helping me feel heard.
Thank you for being her stand in and for getting it.
