My wife has dumped me for the boss

Jun 14, 2012, 06:31 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, My wife and I work for the same company although for different departments.

As it turns out she has been having an affair with our boss. As a result, she has decided to leave me and quit her job in order to move in with him. The affair which has now been made very public, seems to have done no damage to him but has devastated me. I now find myself having to work directly for the man who is seeing my wife! This is intolerable to my pride. However, I don’t see why I should resign from a job in which I had been excelling, when I am the only person to have behaved professionally throughout. What should I do?

Dear Riad,
You find yourself in one tight situation both on the professional and personal front. It is understandable that you are in an emotional mess as you don’t know where to turn to. You may be adamant to stick on to your job. But have you thought of how you will face the man who has taken your wife away from you? It won’t be easy. I think you should start looking for another opportunity. It will be tough working in the given scenario. As you have said it is not affecting your boss, so you very well know that in the future how things will be. You have to move away and start life anew both personally and professionally.
