Things are not always as they seem, as one wife learned when she caught he cheating husband with another woman in their bedroom.
In this AMoMama article we share the story of 'Monica' who had walked in on her husband, 'Peter' with another woman. His explanation, however, was not what she anticipated.
"Then, as she needed clothes, I gave her the designer jeans that you have had for a few years, but don’t use because you say they are too tight."
While the original article does read like a fictitious fabrication, there is nevertheless a very real truth that we can all relate to.
Relationships are built on trust and respect. Imagine Monica's hurt when she walked into their bedroom to find her husband with another woman.
There she stood, a younger woman - a complete stranger, clothes bundled in her hands, her hair still wet from the shower, wearing a shy, nervous smile.
Upset, Monica stormed out with Peter close on her heels. "Let me explain!' he yelled after her.
What could he possibly have to say? But after twenty years of marriage to her sweet, kind Peter, she could at least listen. "I found her on a street corner," he explained.
'Great! A prostitute,' Monica thought. It was completely out of character for her husband. He had always been nothing but selfless and generous. How could he?
"She asked for spare change," Peter continued. "She reminded me so much of our own daughter. So I brought her home to feed her."
"She was dirty and her clothes were ragged and torn. I offered her a shower and gave her some of your clothes. It will soon be winter and she has nothing warm to wear.
Monica sat for a few minutes listening, her mind a whirlwind of questions and her heart a storm of emotions. Finally it sunk in.
Peter was who he had always been, the sweet, kind, selfless generous man that she had fallen in love all those many years ago.
Sometimes, we just need a little faith and understanding.
Please share this story, and please share your thoughts with us. We would love to hear from you.
While this story is almost certainly a fantasy, it does serve as a beautiful reminder of how important trust and respect is in our relationships with friends, family and partners.
