I’ve had an affair with my neighbour for 4 years
Considering how closely people live in SG, its kinda surprising how rare cases of affairs involving neighbors are. At least based on what i managed to hear of.
We’re both married and have been having this affair for the past 4 years. It all started with a simple gesture to help her with groceries from then we begun texting and eventually come to this stage of weekly “meetups”. Covid and WFH arrangements made it easier for us to conduct the deeds. Her husband and my wife do not get to WFH unlike us. I have no kids while her kids are in school in daytime. There was one incident where the husband came unexpectedly to bring lunch and i had to hide in the shelter before finding the chance to make my exit while he went to the toilet. Luckily we finished the deed before that, phew..
As to our own partners, we’re both just no longer feeling the connection with our respective partners and this relationship just rekindled the love that was missing in this stage of our lives. My wife’s turned into the kind that easily lose temper. She used to be kind and we would fix mistakes and work towards goals together, but now she’s just nagging daily, using work as justification.. i’m working too.. so what gives??
On the other hand, my neighbor would complain to me that her husband is always preoccupied with all the other things other than her, could be friends, colleagues, work, games, etc. I see my neighbor with her husband near the block from time to time, always wondering how he could neglect such a lovely wife. Not that it matters, since i can be the one keeping her company and happy.
I would suggest to introduce myself to the husband but she would always reject the idea as it is risky and her husband would pay more attention to me. I know many of you will simply say “why not divorce and marry each other?” yeah well, first off she’s got kids which is not something I’m comfortable with handling and those kids will be much better with their own parents. second of all, going over the divorce procedures and exposing ourselves to close friends and relatives as a two-timer isnt exactly something we want, gotta keep a good rep.
Anyway we expected other neighbors to eventually catch on with our affairs and then we’ll see what happens from there. Or they may have actually already known and chosen to keep mum about it, respecting privacies.. Who knows?
