Revenge after cheating


Sandra, 32, art dealer  

When I married Bry, I knew it wasn't going to be an easy ride. We both had demanding jobs and kids of our own, and we didn't always get enough private time to ourselves. I thought we were just like millions of other couples out there. I never thought he was capable of an affair, let alone with his secretary! 

Revenge is sweet
When I found out,  I wanted to kill him, but I didn't want to lose what we had together. Our relationship was too important to let a sordid fling ruin it. But I wanted to make him pay, so I slept with a friend from work who'd been trying it on for ages, and I made sure he got to know about it. When he found out, he couldn't exactly make a scene because he was the one who cheated first, though it really hurt him. But it didn't make me feel any better. We're still together, but we don't trust each other any more and it's becoming impossible to live with.
