Affair and Cheating

My husband began to cheat on me and now I no longer care – for him, his parents or his extended family

She's always got on well with her husband's family, but since discovering his cheating, she is beginning to care less and less about them

(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.

  1. Dear friend,

    I can feel your pain and loneliness and it’s true that right now you are not finding solace in anything. But I would like to say one important thing to you. There is no benefit of showing your anger to the people, who are not able to change the situation for you. Just try to talk to your husband once and express each emotion of yours whether it’s anger, hate or anything. It doesn’t matter if you get answer or not but you’ll surely feel lighter. Then start involving yourself in activities you like the most. Chat with different people from different cultures. It’ll give you a different thought process. Try to be financially independent, it’s really important. And take the charge of your happiness. Our happiness is not bound to existence of anyone. It’s only with us. I’ve gone through it and that’s how I came out of my depression. Make yourself listen. You can take the help of phycho-therapist. There is nothing wrong in it. You’ll surely find your peace of mind.
