Ask Amy: Camping trip might lead to a long break

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: I have been with my husband for 23 years. It took me many years to trust him, due to his past behavior where he lied to me and was with other women.

Honestly, it took me over 20 years to finally trust him, but this was a mistake.

Recently, he started acting suspiciously, again.

In the past, I never looked in his phone, but this time I decided to look at his text messages.

He was planning to take a single woman camping for a weekend. He’s known her for a while.

She knows he is married. We had a huge fight. He said he told her that I said it was OK.


What single middle-aged woman would think that any shade of this is OK?

I tried to contact her by phone and text. She never responded.

I made him leave for the weekend so that I could think about our relationship.

I am angry, hurt and I feel betrayed.
