Before you have that affair...

  • Print

DEAR MISS LONELYHEARTS: I'm quite enchanted by this man who's my husband's boss. We have met for lunch twice -- in safety at very nice hotel restaurants. And, this educated and sophisticated man has said very flattering things about my husband's work. I don't feel he'd get fired, no matter what. I have been very disappointed in my marriage, as my workaholic husband doesn't love our children and pretty much ignores them, and me. This is the tipping point for an affair, I know. I can feel it in my bones. What should I say the third time this man calls? -- Sorely Tempted, Fort Garry

Dear Tempted: You love those kids. So, decide what you want to do about your marriage and get it done first, not after you have an affair with their dads boss. Once you get caught, and your husband slams the door on his job, your kids will be really messed up. Also, there will be no support money for them until your ex gets work again. No one can blame you if you don't want to stay married to a man who doesn't love your children. But, if this matters so much to you, at least find them a stepfather who doesn't have snake eyes and a hotel room key in his pocket.

Dear Miss Lonelyhearts: I found $150 my teenage son could not possibly have earned in his jeans pocket. I was throwing his favourite jeans in the wash before he could put them in the hamper and he must have forgot when he went out the door yesterday. He's 16, no job, and he went to play computer games. I took the money and he still hasnt asked for it. Im planning to keep it until he asks for it. What could it be from? -- Suspicious Mother, Winnipeg

Dear Suspicous: Dont keep playing games. Put the $150 in front of your son beyond his reach, and ask where he got it. He may have sold a big piece of games equipment you gifted him with and he is ashamed to tell you, or he may be selling drugs, or he may have stolen it. Theres also the small chance he might have done some work for somebody else's mother. The fact that he has not mentioned the loss of that much money is definitely suspect.
