I was in love with this married man. He was an office colleague who has now quit. Though it has been a while now and I'm trying to get on with my life, I can't forget him. I know it is wrong as I am married. What I regret is that it was because of me that our relationship finished. As he was also married, I used to keep on reminding him about it. This used to irritate him and he started distancing himself from me and he ultimately changed jobs.

You may have been in love with him but you found the moral dilemmas overbearing. Now that it is over, there is no point mulling over what went wrong and indulging yourself in the blame game. Even if things had gone well, the repercussions would have been too much for you to handle as you would be hurting two sets of families. Instead, work harder on your current relationship and let the past remain in the past.
