Ask Amy: Engaged man is a fool for love

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: I'm writing in reference to my recent engagement,

I was alone for a long time and met a woman at work and fell deeply in love with her. Two nights a week, she comes to my place for dinner, and we are intimate. Then she leaves at 10 p.m.

Two months ago, I asked her to marry me and she said yes!

But our situation is very unusual.

She lives with the guy she has been with for 15 years. She has two children with him. They are not married and she told me there are no feelings or intimacy between them – and I believe that.

But she still sleeps in the same bed with him. I haven’t met her kids and my place is too small to have them.


So when she comes to my place and we are intimate and then she goes home, I have a hard time dealing with that.

I try not to think about it, but sometimes it gets the best of me.

Any advice? Am I being a fool?
