Shirley’s Question for Marsha…

“My husband has been in an emotional affair for 10 years. We have been married for 45 years. He says it is over, but I don’t believe him. She is his business partner. I am at the end of my rope. How do I live with this?”

Marsha’s Answer for Shirley…

Dear Shirley,

“All I can do is tell you what I would do. I can’t guarantee anything but I am a fighter so that is what I do.

If this woman is his business partner then he will always be around her.

Did he break it off or did she? Have you ever confronted her? Did you just recently find out about this? If you haven’t heard her side then I am not sure you can believe his.

I would arrange a meeting or at least a phone call. Get all the facts and then you can decide what you need to do next.

I hope he is telling you the truth and that you can somehow remember the best of the 45 years and that will overshadow the worst, but this is where I would start.

Also, my husband Larry wrote an article on emotional affairs that may help you work through this that you can find here.”
