So, basically, you just gave her the keys to have an affair.
Maybe I'm just crazy, but the notion of forbidding my wife to do something strikes me as old fashioned. I might just be a fool...but I feel it's not in my principles to act like I have dominion over a woman. Even though it felt absolutely awful to leave them alone and go to bed by myself, I also saw it as a chance for her to recognize how uncomfortable I felt and to do something about it (she failed that test).
She knows how I feel and the ball is in her court. Is this weak of me? Should I be more of a "man" and tell her what to do and also give this guy a piece of my mind? I want to do those things, but still, my principles are holding me back. I am currently drinking some whiskey. At 11am.
