What Would You Do?
My friend Felicia (not her real name) was sleeping when she woke up to have a bathroom break. Sleepily she reached out to touch her husband Tony (not his real name) on the bed beside her but he was not there!
She went downstairs towards the kitchen and froze when she saw her husband of ten years banging the new maid on the floor!
She quickly packed an overnight bag and rushed to my house screaming “I’m going to kill him! I’m going to kill him!”
I managed to calm her down enough to tell me what happened.
She was more pained by the fact that he “did it in our matrimonial home ” and said he would have probably had sex with her in her bed if she was not at home!
I asked her what hurt her the most- that he was sleeping with the maid or that he did it in their matrimonial home?
She said doing it in the house was adding insult to injury and he had no respect for her (obviously) or he would have waited for her to be out of the house and then she would not have had to face the humiliation!
She spent a week with me during which she tried to pick up the pieces but, oh yes- it was not easy.
I preached forgiveness and told her that having been caught out like that, he will be “a good boy” and turn a new leaf! She disagreed and said “a dog will Always be a dog!”
What would you do if you were the one that came home to find your married partner banging the maid/ houseboy?
Let me know your thoughts before I tell you how it all played out.
