Yup. You read that right. For the past eight months, Husband has been having an affair.
His appearance has changed. He’s lost weight and gained muscles. He no longer wears his wedding ring. I smell her on his laundry. He has spent loads of money on precious baubles for her. Even the UPS guy knows something is going on as he delivers yet another box of something for her. All my friends know and they pat me on the hand and look at me in pity while plying me with drinks. All his friends look at him in envy drooling over all her pretty curves and expensive bling.
And the fights we've had about her – at first I shared my opinions but he felt so strongly about her and talked about her so incessantly that I just became passive about the whole thing and let him do what he’s been doing with her.
Tomorrow, we’re introducing her to all our friends, throwing a big party in her honor. Like him, people will flock to her, want to spend time with her. (And they should - Husband has spent enough on her that she will do anything they ask of her.) I know, a party for your husband's mistress is a weird thing to have but the thing is, I actually like her. She’s absolutely stunning and even I find time in her presence calming and inspiring. I’m also aware that the time he’s spent with her has been so valuable for him. He’s a more fulfilled person with her in his life.
It might take some time but maybe one day I will finally accept her for what she is and what she has done and can do for him. One day I will think this affair will have been best thing, the absolutely right thing for our marriage. I can only hope. But now, I’m feeling petty and so here are some pictures of the slut – I mean, the lovely thing before Husband lost his mind to her and I lost the life I'd had with Husband.
I'd post 'after' pictures but Husband wants me to wait until he's showed her off to all his friends. Since I've been letting him do whatever till now, I figured I'd let him have this final wish. Pictures of the slut on Monday.
