Recently on several occasions I have been asked, what would my reaction be, if my husband cheated on me. My first reaction is to wonder how would my husband react if I cheated on him. Will I? If yes what will prompt me to go ahead and find warmth, love, affection, respect even if for just one night, in the arms of another man. If it isn’t all of the above that I seek, and my decisions are only being guided by lust, then the real question is am I really cheating on my husband or on the idea that I think is my marriage.
So when I am asked that question, I ask the same questions to myself. Truth is I don’t know what my reaction will be. For all I know, I will first be shocked, maybe even amused and then probably hurt. And then I will try and reason and I will make my husband feel very bad about his choices. I will probably even wonder which divorce lawyer I would consult.
But then again, knowing me, I would want to know the raunchy details of my husband’s escapade. I don’t know. But I am compelled to ask myself how strong is my relationship with my husband. Or should the question be, what is the weakest link in our marriage?
