Vex, but should I take him back?
My husband was a good man until a wretch of a woman came and lived near us. I used to like her, and she used to come to our home. We had parties together, where we would cook the food and even share in the “spoils” (the proceeds).
Just before Christmas I noticed she was making up to my husband. When I asked him about it, he would say it isn’t anything.
Anyhow Christine, a friend told me that the two of them used to meet at a certain place. I went and saw them for myself.
Christine, I do not mind telling you that I got on bad. I told him not to come back, because it is my house he is living in. I don’t know what is wrong with the man because we used to live very good.
He did not go to her home as I thought he would; he went to his aunt; who is telling me every time she sees me, how he begs pardon, and to please let him come back.
I love my husband and I work neck and neck with him for what we have. It hurts me to my heart to see how he and this woman were making a fool of me. He sends letters by the children asking me to let him come back. To tell you the truth Christine, I so vex I don’t know what to do. As a woman, tell me what to do!
I honestly believe that your husband loves and cares for you despite the fact that he has had a relationship with this woman. Resisting temptation is not always easy for everyone.
You’ve said that you love your husband; bearing in mind all the love that you said existed between you two before this woman came into the picture, I would encourage you to take him back. Fight for your husband; don’t fight against him. He has already expressed regret about his actions in a number of ways, so find it in your heart to forgive him.
I believe you two should sit down and have a serious discussion about his infidelity and then put it behind you. Don’t remind him of it, or nag him. It will make things worse.
Concerning this former lady friend, let him know that any friendship between you, him and her, is out of the question.
