Ask Amy: Wife’s risky behavior escalates

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Turns out, that was a lie. A few days ago, she confessed to sleeping with a total stranger that night.

I don’t know what to do. I feel like the love in my heart is just gone, and I do not want it to be gone.

I have never been unfaithful to my wife, but she has hurt me so many times. When do you draw the line?

If love doesn’t reappear soon, I don’t know what I’ll do. Neither one of us deserves a life of unhappiness.

Please lend me some of your wisdom.

Dear Heartbroken: Your wife’s risk-taking behavior seems to be escalating – going from what you both define as emotional affairs, to anonymous sex.

She kept knowledge of this one-night stand to herself until recently.

So why did she disclose this now?

Is she trying to force the issue in order to end the marriage, or is she trying to come clean in order to save the marriage? Is she trying to punish you, or does she want to punish herself? Does she have an STD? Did she become pregnant?
