Ask Amy: If you can’t save the marriage, protect the assets

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: My husband and I are both seniors. He works full time and I work part time.

We have been married for over 25 years.

He recently told me that he is involved in a relationship with a 19-year-old girl. When I pressed him for details, he said that they communicate several times a day and have been in touch every day for the last two years.

I am devastated and repulsed by what he told me in his very calm but smug way. The more I cried, the more sadistic he became.

I kept asking why.

He finally said that he wanted someone younger.


I am 13 years younger than he is.

He insists that there was no physical intimacy, and he was only trying to help her.

What do you think? Is he just trying to hurt me or maybe throw me off?

Now there is an ugly divorce ahead.
