Stuck in a Snowstorm

At this time in our marriage, we lived an hour or so outside the city in a rural area with dirt roads. My husband worked in the city, and one day a snowstorm came in suddenly. My husband couldn’t get off work early, and by the time he was able to leave work there was too much snow for him to risk driving all the way home.

He called and told me he was going to stay with one of our friends - a divorced woman I considered one of my closest friends at the time.

Now, call me old-fashioned if you like, but I’ve never considered it okay for a married man to spend the night at another woman’s house.

I suggested some other alternatives. We had many friends who lived in the city. He had his pick of places to stay - from married couples to single men.

Why did he have to stay with our one divorced female friend? (This was the same friend who had shared the Fireside Flirtations.)

He rationalized that it was because her house was easier to get to. He disregarded my other suggestions and simply said this was what he was going to do.

I didn’t hear from him for the rest of the night.

I don’t know what bothers me more - that he spent the night with our divorced female friend or that he didn’t consider how I felt about it.

Then again - maybe I was just blowing it out of proportion. At least that’s what I told myself.

What do you think?

Did He Cheat?
