Forbidden Affair
Q: I have been a Key Biscayne resident for a long time and am proud to call the island home. However, over the past few months I’ve started to worry that I may have to relocate in order to save my marriage. I’m having an affair with my friend’s husband and I can’t bring myself to continue doing this to her but I can’t separate myself away from him. My husband has no idea that any of this is going on and I want to keep it that way but I’m fearful that he’s beginning to suspect something is going on. I don’t want to throw away my family and my home but the only way I can avoid my lover is to move. Is there any advice you can give me that might help get me out of this situation without totally devastating everyone involved? I feel like such a horrible person for letting all of this happen.
A: Moving to another city may not necessarily be the answer. You have not placed yourself in an easy situation. It’s important that you realized how this can destroy your family as well as your friend’s family. It sounds like you were not happy in your marriage which eventually led you to have an affair. What are you in need of, more love and attention? If you love your spouse and want to give your marriage another opportunity, I recommend you stop this affair as soon as possible before it’s too late. Slowly distance your friendship and make it clear to your lover that this is truly the best decision for everyone. In terms of your husband, think of what has worked in the past. Tell him what you want to see more of from him in the marriage. Maybe then your marriage will be enticing and fulfilling with no need to go anywhere else.
