Share this article Share Brian actually left me to live with his mistress for months, and I had to fight to get him to return. How naive I was.
I partly blamed myself. I have two grown-up children, Sammy, 37, and Fredd, I admit I had neglected Brian. We spent too little time together as a couple and, perhaps inevitably, our sex life had suffered.
But for 24 years of our marriage the chemistry between us had been heart-flippingly electric — right up until the moment I discovered he was cheating on me. We met inwhen I was 23 and working in a bar. Brian came in for a drink one night and we started chatting. He was 22, funny, with a lovely sense of mischief, and we quickly became firm friends.
Eventually, our friendship sparked into romance, and within a few months we were inseparable. We moved in together in Headley, Hampshire, and got married three years later. Our love was based on a rock-solid friendship, our physical relationship was passionate and we both had good jobs.
Brian was a building contractor and I became a social worker. Brian was always spontaneous and often romantic — there was never a dull moment. I wanted to concentrate on our domestic routine and my burgeoning career.
But, despite my doubts, my adoration for Brian was so overwhelmingly that I followed his lead. Looking back, I can see I allowed myself to become a bit of a door-mat.
Ruptures emerged in the previously smooth surface of our marriage. In the winter ofmy daughter, Sammy, then 32, was confined to bed with rheumatoid arthritis and I spent a great deal of my time nursing her. I should have noticed our marriage was in dangerous waters, but somehow Brian always managed to charm his way back into my good books.
We were spending Christmas Day there, and I was rather distracted by the impending festivities. At lunchtime, Brian rang to see how Sammy was. I was desperately disappointed, but I tried to brush it off. He was just in one of his moods, I thought to myself. He eventually surfaced on Boxing Day, calling me late that evening.
Instead, I swallowed my rage. What was the point, I thought. But his absence stretched into weeks, then months, and I was at the end of my tether.
I texted him to ask if he wanted a divorce. He texted back just one word: There was still only the occasional word from Brian, but I was desperate to sustain my hope, however small, that we could somehow work it out.
I missed him terribly and felt so confused. His sporadic messages slowly became more common, and after 18 months he was sending me regular texts — asking if we could talk and even saying that he missed me. After so long being on tenterhooks, it was an enormous relief.
We were so close, I felt, to getting our marriage back. We met in a Hampshire pub. Over the next few weeks, we met for lunch a few times.
Even then, my feelings of disgust at his behaviour were outweighed by my love for him. Despite the fact that Brian had hurt Helen badly she still wanted him back She was a divorcee ten years his senior, someone he had known many years before. Brian loved the attention she gave him — attention I had been too busy to offer him, he reminded me.
You might be amazed, but I was still hopelessly in love with him. So I found myself in the bizarre situation of seeing my own husband discreetly while he was still living with his mistress. Three months later, I gently asked Brian if he wanted to come home — and was overjoyed when he said he did.
