Ask Amy: Sister’s revelation lobs secret bombshell

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: I grew up in the same town as “Carly,” the woman I later married. Her older sister “Susan” and I were in the same class in high school.

Susan and I were friendly in high school, but I wouldn’t say we were exactly friends. It was a small school.

After college I returned to my hometown when my father got sick and needed help in his business. I met Carly and we fell in love.

Carly and I have a great marriage with two young children.

We are all close with Susan.

Recently Susan pulled me aside and said she wanted to talk to me alone.


OK, no problem.

She told me that she has had feelings for me ever since high school. She said she knew she could never act on those feelings, but that she wanted to be honest about it and that’s why she told me.

I was completely stunned. She urged me not to tell my wife about this and I agreed.

Now I’m not feeling good about that. I don’t feel comfortable with the whole situation and I’m not sure what to do.
