I got this question from a divorcee who was dumped for a younger woman after 25 years of marriage. She wanted to know if these relationships stick or break up. The traditional wisdom is that they usually break up, but my husband married his affair partner and many of the women I interviewed for my book had the same experience. I’m wondering what your experience is?
This divorcee also said she envies women whose marriage broke up for other reasons than infidelity. How do you feel about that? I agree with her. I especially envy women who did the leaving. Betrayal is the worst way to end a long time marriage.
Also, if he DID leave you for a younger woman, was that worse than if she’d been your age or does age not matter? I personally didn’t give a damn about her age, just her bitchy behavior.
