Annie’s Mailbox: 12-year lover refuses to leave wife

Dear Annie: I met “George” 12 years ago, and we began a relationship. I now am 78 and a widow.

George is married and refuses to leave his wife. We see one another six days a week, and he tells me constantly that he loves me very much. I love him, and my world would collapse without him. We secretly go places all the time, and as far as I know, his wife hasn’t a clue. What can I do at this point?

– Want It All

Dear Want: We will say this as clearly as we can: George is not going to leave his wife. Ever. He is quite content with things as they are, and you, apparently, will continue to put up with this arrangement because you don’t want to be without him. Either leave him already, or stop expecting the situation to change. Whatever you decide, accepting reality will relieve some of your stress.
