An Affair To Remember . . .
My husband John and I have been married for 14 generally happy years and have a young daughter called Katie, who’s two-years-old.
Recently however I found out through my friend, Tina, that John had a one-night stand just before we were married. It was with an old friend we’ve now lost touch with and we’re talking 15 years ago – but Tina thinks I should Facebook the old friend and find out what happened – and confront my husband!
I’m honestly not sure what to do. Part of me thinks it was so long ago that I should just let it lie. But then part of me really wants to know the truth. Plus I’m worried that if John did this once – could he do it again? Do I really know my husband and what he’s capable of?

You might be more curious than else and you know what they say about curiosity! Here’s why you’re gonna leave this in the past where it belongs:
