Dear Coleen, Back in the Nineties, I obtained married to a really stunning lady, however I didn’t realise how fortunate I was. I didn’t admire her almost sufficient, though I by no means cheated on her.

Recently, I came upon that in the early days my wife had an affair with a nasty, sleazy work colleague of mine, who I didn’t get on with.

The entire company knew in regards to the affair, however not me, and everybody was laughing at me.

My wife and this man used to hook up at his home, in his flash car, at a cemetery, in previous farm ­buildings and even in a caravan at a travellers’ website.

At the time, I knew this man used to purchase married ladies drinks, then attraction and seduce them, however I by no means knew he was sleeping with my wife.

One time my wife and this man’s personal assistant had been seen fleeing his home in simply their underwear when his wife arrived dwelling unexpectedly.

People at work used to check with my wife as “The mini-skirter” and “Sex in a Mini”.

I have forgiven her for the affair. But I feel so humiliated by all of this and would love your opinion.

Coleen says

Well, simply since you’ve forgiven her for this previous affair doesn’t imply you’ll be able to transfer on from it.

But if you wish to attempt, I assume it’ll take extra than simply saying you forgive her and then making an attempt to return to regular.

Finding out about an affair adjustments your relationship for ever and you’ll be able to’t simply return to how issues had been. It takes a number of effort and dedication on either side to work by way of it and it’s essential that your wife is open and trustworthy with you about what occurred and why.

It may be that you simply want relationship counselling that can assist you with this and to work out whether or not you’ll be able to transfer on and keep collectively.

It appears you blame ­your self for this affair, however you shouldn’t. If the wedding wanted consideration, then your wife had loads of selections earlier than having an affair with a man you labored with.

The humiliation is difficult to take care of – I’ve had to take care of it myself – however you must realise that you simply’ve carried out nothing incorrect and most individuals could have empathy and gained’t be laughing at you.

Only you’ll be able to resolve if you may get previous this and keep together with your wife, and she must show you could belief her once more. Good luck.
