Husbands never stop dating your wives are your field

opinion

A s I walked across the field towards David and my group of friends I was suddenly overcome by an immensely strong feeling. It was totally unexpected. It wasn't a blatant sexual sensation, such as that sometimes felt on glimpsing an attractive man. It was more of a velvety responsiveness that seeped through my body. And that was how it all began. A gradual but mutual confession of what had unconsciously grown between us.

But there could never be a fairy tale love affair. For there was a huge obstacle — David was married. I withdrew from that evening hoping that my feelings would fade. I intentionally kept away from the group of friends and from David, yet I couldn't stop thinking about him. I had been single for a number of years but didn't yearn to be part of a couple.

I loved my independence. I had a job, friends and a close family. I enjoyed running my home and relished the day-to-day care of my two boys. I enjoyed the dating game and had grown accustomed to the strange ways of single and divorced fortysomething men. The necessity that many of these men had of only ever allowing a certain amount of closeness didn't bother me. I enjoyed their impressive attempts at wining and dining so obviously intended to ensure the evening ended in their bed.

But what I felt when I thought of David shocked me.
