Annie’s Mailbox: Man suspicious of cheating wife

Dear Annie: My wife and I have been married for five years and have three children.

Recently, she cheated on me, so we went for counseling.

Toward the end of our six weeks of counseling, I caught her in bed with the “other man.” She begged for forgiveness, and we are now getting counseling through our pastor.

The man with whom she had the affair continues to call her on a daily basis. Some-

times they talk for up to an hour. She told me he tried to commit suicide and she feels obligated to speak with him as a friend.

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

I don’t feel right about this and have told her so. She claims angrily that I am being controlling and that I invade her privacy.

Both counselors have advised her to end all ties with this man.

Am I right to think she should no longer talk with him, or am I being jealous?

— Need Help

Dear Need Help: Your wife must stop all contact with this man immediately if she expects to save her marriage.

By staying in touch with him, she is continuing to cheat on you emotionally.

It’s time to put your foot down. You are not being jealous or possessive. She is being disingenuous and pulling the wool over your eyes. Don’t let her get away with it.
