My Husband Discovered My Boyfriend

May 24th, 2003

“I am working four states away from my husband to put our kids through college.

I work hard and it’s a seven hour drive to see him, so I see him only every other weekend.

He went ballistic when he found out about my boyfriend. He also threatened to have my boyfriend sacked and made me promise not to see him.

What should I do?”

Liam’s Answer

Well, Daisy Mae, I think you now realize that telling your husband that you have a boyfriend may not have been the world’s cleverest idea.

Obviously you’ll be changing husbands in the not too distant future, so I think now is a good time to re-assess your actions so that you don’t make the same mistake again.

If you’re having an affair, the trick is: Don’t tell your husband.

What he doesn’t know won’t hurt him. In my experience, the breakup only ever comes after the discovery.

Chris’ Answer

I’ve always been dubious about parent’s sipporting their kids through college. Here’s another nail in the coffin of the idea. Your marriage is just another sad statistic that shows how the government’s policies are harming families.

Tertiary education should be free and available to everyone, regardless of financial means. If you didn’t have to travel interstate to support your kids, none of this would ever have happened.

I suggest you write a letter to your local politicians and ask them to sort out the mess. It’s their fault, after all.
