DEAR ABBY: Five years into our marriage, my wife and I took a girlfriend, "Sonya. " I fell madly in love with her. Unfortunately, my relationship with my wife cooled because she changed as a person.

I'm having trouble dealing with it, but I don't think I could handle not seeing her face light up when she speaks about her new girlfriend.
