I came across this letter in an advice column recently.
I’ve been married to my husband since college, but he is a liar and a cheat. He has cheated on me from the beginning and, when I confront him, he denies everything. What’s worse, everyone knows that he cheats on me. It is so humiliating.
Also, since he lost his job fourteen years ago, he hasn’t even looked for a new one. All he does all day is smoke cigars, cruise around and shoot the bull with his buddies, while I have to work to pay the bills. Since our daughter went away to college he doesn’t even pretend to like me, and even hints that I may be a lesbian.
What should I do?
For crying out loud, grow up and dump him. Good grief woman, think about it. You’re running for President of the United States. You don’t need him anymore.
