(As told to Bindiya Kothari)
We had it all, and then he strayed
I am Vandana. Now in my 40s, I have a “husband” and two children. We have a beautiful life – a nice house, lovely children, promising careers and a great circle of friends. All is great, except one little thing – the love has gone out of our spousal relationship.
It is difficult to say how Anand, my husband, strayed. Ours was a love match; both of us loved each other to bits before we took the plunge and got married. He had always been an ideal husband – indulging every whim of mine, pleasing all the people who mattered, extremely social and a very desirable daamaadji. But some time after our second child, he began losing interest, in me, in our relationship and the inevitable happened soon – he began an extramarital affair.
