As told to Saheli Mitra
I knew I would not be with her in every waking moment on our wedding night itself. For that idea was an impossible one. I believed in giving my wife the space and independence she deserved. But I never realised, two years into marriage I would lose her to another man, and that too my childhood friend. For me, commitment and sexual exclusivity was supreme after marriage. I was a workaholic, and either never got the chance or never had the wish to indulge in any advances I ever faced from any of my female colleagues.
I still have no idea what led Suhani to falter. Was it a moment of vulnerability or heated lust? Despite my busy work schedule, I never neglected our relationship. I encouraged Suhani to work after marriage, though she was reluctant and left her job to turn a homemaker. She must have been bored, all alone at home. Else why should she bring another man into our bedroom, even if through the virtual world?
