Dear Diana,
My wife is having an affair with her college friend and she pretends as if she’s innocent. I spotted them having lunch and getting cosy at a mall. When she returned home, I asked her where she was in the afternoon. She lied that she was at a friend’s place. I can live without her but my parents think highly of her and I’m more worried about them as this news will totally break their heart. I don’t know what to do. I don’t blame her much as we never had a very fulfilling marriage either.

Dear Avin,
Good heavens! Your wife is indulging in public display of affection with her college friend. Any other husband would be hopping mad and would have caught her redhanded in the act. But you prefer to turn a blind eye because your parents think highly of her. This is because you are keeping it as a well-guarded secret. Tell your parents about her affair and they will no longer hold her in high esteem. Anyways you say there is nothing left in your marriage. So move on pronto and dump this woman who is causing misery in your life. I am sure you deserve someone better.
