I found out my husband Nick had been having a long term affair with one of his female workmates. To say I was mortified was an understatement, although I had always suspected they had a ‘weird’ relationship and she was always travelling with him and there was no logical reason why she had to go on trips with him. Anyway I felt like a total idiot.
And he traveled with her constantly – and not just for business as I later found out. So that’s why he missed my birthday last year! So that’s why he was away for Christmas and New Year! It all made sense. How did I find out? Guess? Yep, I looked at his phone and saw her messages, including a frantic one where she was worried she was pregnant as her period was late (turned out she wasn’t pregnant thankfully). When I saw that text, I knew they were having an affair. Because why else would she text that information to a male workmate? It’s the kind of text you’d only send your lover – to warn him.
