The woman said that she was shocked when her husband suggested the idea in the middle of lockdown and she asked him if it was “lockdown craziness talking”.
However, it appears that her husband had been planning for months before the start of lockdown.
His plan was to rent an apartment for his girlfriend so that he will be staying with her during the week and only spend the weekends with his wife at home.
He disclose that they won’t be any form of emotional connections between him and the girlfriend and that he would “prioritise” his wife and children.
The husband also said that she had permission to go and see other men, but wasn’t allowed to sleep with them.
The heartbroken mum stated that she had no other choice than to continue living with him, and doesn’t know what to do.
In her words:
“I am gobsmacked. I feel like I’ve been punched in the stomach. I asked him if this was lockdown craziness talking and he told me that he had been wanting to bring this up for a few months. I cannot believe it. I don’t know whether to cry and feel completely devastated or if I should seriously consider what he is offering. I’m all over the place”.
