My wife went out with work friends tonight. I knew she would be back late but stayed up anyway just in case she needed to be picked up or whatever. Well, she rolled in about 1:30 drunk af. I promptly turn off the movie I’m watching and we head to bed.
I barely have time to get undressed before she says goodnight and rolls over. Now, this struck me as odd because this woman gets RIDICULOUSLY “turn on” when she has been drinking.
But I guess not tonight. Rather frustrated I climb into bed and try to write it off as her just being over tired and over-served. Well, I’m just about asleep when her phone loudly goes off startling me back into consciousness. Seeing no reaction from her, and knowing her notification will go off at least one more time unless it is dealt with, I reach over and grab it to flip the silent mode button.
And here’s where things start getting F up. You see the notification was triggered by a text. A text from a guy who picked her up tonight, from some other random guys house bc random guy was super drunk and she was scared. His text, “Goodnight darling.”
What followed was me doing what I’ve never done, but obviously should have, a deep dive into her phone activity. What I found is as follows: she’s F at least one of my, now former, friends.
She is involved in an emotional affair with a friend of hers from uni (also married) who seemed VERY eager to take advantage of his wife’s absence so that he could spend time with mine (He was the noble knight who rescued her from a random drunk guy) And she has an impressively active tinder profile.
Oh yeah, and at one point this evening it seems she briefly considered hitching a ride with a stranger to go home. The FB messages, WhatsApp and dms took about an hour to get through.
So now I’m sitting here, the house quiet, nauseous and internally raging, drinking cheap beer, trying to figure out how we got here. I’d wake her up to confront her, but the kids are asleep and I just don’t have the energy to fight tonight.
Thats 6 years down the drain.
