A married man, father of two children, gets involved in an affair with a woman 20 years his senior. He feels he should abandon the relationship as soon as possible, but does not know how.
I am 28 years old, married with two kids, four years and 6 months. I’ve always thought I was happy with my life until I got to taste the proverbial forbidden fruit.
I spend a lot of time in foreign business trips, using services of this or that airline. A while ago, I’ve met a 48-year-old woman on an airplane. We had a one-night stand that evolved into a passionate affair. I started seeing her.
She is a widow with 4 kids, the oldest is 26, with his own children. If I believed in such things, I would have suspected she’s using some kind of a charm on me. The sex is unbelievable. At the same time, I love my kids. I love my wife as their mother.
I think of this letter as a first step of admitting I’ve done something I shouldn’t have had. How do I abandon this relationship, what do I do?
