I’m 45 and my wife is 41. We have daughters aged 21 and 19. My neighbour is 38 and single. She is a full-time primary school teacher and cares for her elderly mother. She’s gorgeous and I could never understand why she’d not been snapped up. She called me a few weeks ago to say that her mother had fallen out of her chair and asked me to go round to help her.
I was there in a flash and together we lifted her mum back up and she seemed OK. My neighbour got her mum into bed for a nap and was then so grateful and teary I made us a cuppa. We sat at the table and she poured her heart out – saying she’d never been able to go out on dates because of her mother and how lonely she felt.
I wiped her tears away and hugged her, and she turned my face towards her and kissed me. I felt so turned on. She asked me to have sex with her so we did it there and then, in the kitchen while her mother was asleep upstairs. I felt like a teenager again, and she texted me the next day and came over to my house as I’d finished work early.
We were just having a cuddle when my wife walked through the door and caught us. She was rooted to the spot, not being able to believe what she’d seen. My neighbour ran home and my wife was so upset she told my girls as soon as they came in from work. I feel like such an idiot. Our marriage is in tatters. What can I do?
