Q: I think my wife of 32 years has been cheating on me when she travels on business. Friends told me to discuss my suspicions with her, but every time I bring it up, she denies it. Recently, while at dinner with friends, she mentioned that a year ago she had lunch with a male co-worker on his yacht. When I asked her about it later, she said it was just an innocent lunch meeting, that the man wanted to show off his new boat. His boat is about 45 minutes from their work. I think that they dined on each other while on the boat. Isn't it inappropriate for a married woman to be alone with a single man on his boat, house or any enclosure? Even if everything was innocent? I still love her, but I no longer trust her.
Steve: Have you seen the movie "Up in the Air"? If not, don't. Men are always trying to show off their boats to women. A smart woman is wise to this game and avoids impropriety. I suggest counseling for both of you so you can regain trust.
