You blame yourself. As you pour through the emails between them, him asking her how she’s feeling, her asking him if he’s been eating enough, you can’t help but feel like you’re lacking.
How long has this been going on? How long has he been keeping this relationship from you?
How long have you been such a disappointing wife to him that he still keeps in touch with her.
“Are you just keeping her in your back pocket, in case you and I don’t work out?” you should ask him when he gets home. “Do you want to go and see her, to see if there’s still something there between you? Were you lying in your vows when you said I would forever be the only woman for you?”
You could do what so many wives before you have done. Turn a blind eye. Pretend you didn’t read the emails, didn’t see her number on his caller ID, didn’t notice the birthday card.
Or you could work your ass off to be such a fantastic wife, emotionally, spiritually, and sexually, that he finds no need to ever even think about his mother again.
Or…You could suggest an open relationship. It’s gross, but lots of wives do it. You could let him go and visit her on holidays or weekends. Hell you could even cook for the three of you if she wants to come by. If you want to keep your man, even though you’re clearly not woman enough for him, you might just have to share him.
His car just pulled into the driveway. You don’t have to decide how to handle this right now. Just slam his laptop shut, fix your make up, and go give him a kiss that makes him remember why he chose you over her.
Happy Your Husband Isn’t Over His Mother Yet Day!
