My New Man

Tags: new man,

I’m going to tell my husband today. I’ve been putting it off for weeks. How do I tell the man I love that I’ve found someone else? I still love my husband, I really do. I’ve spent most of my adult life with him. In all that time we never argued. Well, we’ve had our disagreements, of course, nothing bad though. I made a vow to always love honour and obey him. I didn’t take that vow lightly. And yet, today I have to tell him that I’ve found another man, a man I also love. I met him at the local church of all places. We just seemed to hit it off. He makes me feel happy inside once again. I haven’t felt this happy for a long time.

And today has to be the day. I can’t put it off any longer, I have to tell him. I said I would see him at three o’clock. I’ve been crying all morning just thinking about it. What do I say, how do I say it? How do I explain to the love of my life that I have someone new? George, the new man in my life, said he would come with me. But I told him, that this was something I needed to do alone. He understood, of course, he still has to tell his wife that he has found someone new.

I left George in the car. It was now or never. I took the short walk up the leafy lane. I was on time, I usually am. I told him everything, how I met George at the local church. How I never intended to fall in love with him, it just happened. How much I still loved him and how much I will miss him. I think he understood. My dear husband always understood me and my silly ways. I was crying as I walked back to the car. George could see me. He got out and gave me a loving cuddle. He didn’t say much, he knew I would need a bit of time.

Now it was his turn. He has to tell his wife. I hope she understands as much as my husband did. I’m sure she loved George very much. I said I would wait in the car as he told her. Of course, he wouldn’t have to go very far, she is buried quite close to my dear, departed husband.
