‘I slept with another man’

‘I’ve been together with Mike for 15 years and married for 10.

We’ve been through a lot together and I love him dearly. Recently, though, we’ve both been working really hard and haven’t spent as much time together.

I know that’s not an excuse, but maybe I wasn’t getting the attention I thought I deserved.

One night, I went out with the girls after work and we ended up in a bar that we’d never been to before.

This guy started chatting me up and was being really attentive. It had been a hard week and I probably drank more than I normally would.

Before I knew it, we were getting into a cab and going back to his place. To be honest, the night passed in a bit of a blur and I ended up doing a midnight flit back home.

People talk about “drunken one-night stands” and I used to laugh, but now I’ve done the same thing.

I feel awful about what I’ve done and know that I could never do anything like it again.’
