Back with husband but missing friend


Dear Christine,
BECAUSE of my husband’s heavy drinking I left him and went to live with my mother. That was about two years ago.
During that time, I made friends with a man of whom I have become very fond. He is not demanding and understands my reluctance to get intimate.
My husband came to realise that I no longer intended to put up with his drinking when I left and he gave it up. He begged and eventually convinced me to return. But how can I forget my kind, gentle friend?
This might not make sense to you but I do care for my husband. However, I’m finding it hard to get my friend out of my mind.
Please let me hear from you, Christine. Thanks very much.

Dear P.R.,
YOU MAY NEVER FORGET ENTIRELY, but time may help you to see things more clearly. I suggest since you do care for your husband that you concentrate on building a future with him.
You have no cause for regrets, only pleasant memories of a loving friendship and a penitent husband you care for.
