To the Other Woman,
It has been a few months since your affair with my husband ended.
Your affair has destroyed an entire family.
My daughter has completely disowned her father because of what he did with you, and will no longer talk with either of us.
My son has lost all respect for his father as a result of your affair.
My health has been permanently tainted from the viral STDs that you so freely shared with my husband during your moments of stolen passion, and which he, in turn, shared with me.
These things are irreplaceable.
LISTEN: I think my partner might be cheating…
You, on the other hand, hide behind your lies and silence, while your former lover – the man with whom you are still hoping to spend the rest of your life – has effectively lost his, because he chose to tell the truth.
Your choice to remain silent when his world is falling apart speaks volumes of your character. Even now, your silence ensures that you are able to remain securely ensconced in your marriage. The marriage that you claimed was a farce. Keeping your family intact, while mine falls apart.
Do I blame you for what happened, and not blame my husband for his choice to be unfaithful?
No; a million times, no.
