I have been married for 32 years. My wife is a wonderful person but says she cannot continue to ignore my cheating. My marriage is nearing a divorce. We have five children. I love her but admit I stayed with her because of the children. She is looking forward to early retirement. She has made plans for us to go on exclusive vacations. I don’t intend to go with her. Eight months ago I broke off my relationship with my side woman I had for six years. Two weeks after that I met another ‘side woman’ and I just can’t control myself.
Gwendolyn, I truly believe that it was not intended for man to have only one woman.—Jim
Let me tell you this: You are playing Russian Roulette with your life, not with one gun—but with two. A divorce is in order and should have been years ago. You did not stay with your wife because of the children. You stayed with your wife because she had a job. Get your life together before you meet with tragedy. After 32 years of marriage and five children, it’s time to bring your dog in. You can no longer bark like a young man. It is wrong for any man not to appreciate and respect his wife. Your wife and her gun can harm you. Your lady on the side with her gun will harm you because everything you told her was untrue. It was not meant for man to have two or more women. Think about it. Financially he can barely—provide for one.
