My friends affair
My friend disclosed to me recently that she had a 6 month affair. She was caught and they are dealing with the consequences. I am 100% against affairs, but when she told me about it I couldn't help feel so sorry for her. (Yes she was wrong and I feel bad for him obviously, but I know her on a personal level and she is so in love with her husband and works her butt off to be a good mother/wife/provider).
They have 4 kids. She is beautiful and cares about her looks. She works full time plus goes to school full time, he works full time also. She had always told me since I've known her that she always initiates sex. They had great sex but it was only because she initiated, she told him about how it bothered her but he never changed or stuck to making more of an effort. She was getting denied a lot by him to the point of making her feel like a pervert. One day she initiated again and he snapped and said geez you need medication! After that something in her died. The next day when she ran into an old friend that he hasn't seen in a while, and she said... Katie, he looked at me in a way that I haven't been looked at in a long time. I don't know why but this broke my heart. And that was the beginning of their affair.
I know that this goes both ways, male and female. But I think it's so easy to become "roommates" and have such a routine life with each other that we often forget to look at our spouse as our beautiful, sexy, playmates so to speak. We just become moms and dads and whatever. As a women I know it's so important to feel desired and hot by my husband. Idk where I am going with this but I think it's a common problem with marriages... we stop dating each other.
