'I'm contemplating an extra-marital affair...'
Dear Diana, I am a 33-year-old woman trapped in a loveless marriage
My husband doesn’t pay attention to me and my life has lost all joy and enthusiasm. My neighbour’s 28-year-old nephew gives me a lot of attention and I feel comfortable with him. He is a very uninhibited guy and I think I can have an affair with him on the sly. Should I?
You may have made elaborate plans, but have you wondered what will happen when you will be caught. The guy is single and probably looking for a romp, but you should know better. Remember, it is you who is indulging in an extra marital affair. You will mess up your life forever. Instead, why don’t you try and make your marriage come alive. Make an effort to add that spark in it. There is no point in a blame game. Instead of blaming your husband, what have you done to save your marriage? So set your own house in order first.
