How Many Others, fiction by T. U.
What I still don’t understand is my friend who has been happily married, likes to play around. I said if you are happily married why you feel the need to play around. Trying to understand his perspective on the matter; he shared he told his wife when they were married, just never get
fat. Which she is 5’2” or 5’3” and about 175 or 180 lbs. So that is his excuse to have occasional flings. Of course he’s on the heavy side now
He doesn’t see it as cheating just that his wife broke the contract. He says he loves her to death and never wants to leave her; it’s hard to say.
And I guess because he fools around he’s becoming more suspicious. She is too. For example: when she doesn’t answer the phone right away or not at all; or isn’t home when he thinks she should be. He will joke around and say, “She’s probably at the boyfriends”, but I think he’s serious. Kind of a bitter/sweet relation and I hope they work things out and stay faithful to one another.
Also, I wonder how many others do the same thing.
