Dear Aunty,

I have a small problem that I hope you might be able to help me with.

I have met a really nice man who makes me smile and look forward to waking up each day.

The small problem I speak of is that he is not my husband.

I have simply fallen head over heels for a man.

And he, I am sure, feels the same.

I have been married for almost 15 years.

My husband and I sort of rub along together.

But I cannot say that he does, or really ever did, make me feel the way this new man does.

I think we have simply stayed together because it was convenient.

My new man and I want to explore the next step.

I am keen as mustard, but he seems wary and says we should not leave our respective spouses.

I don't want to waste any more time.

What's the best way to handle his doubts?

Thank you in advance

Well, I am a little surprised at how callous you sound.

There seems to be no thought for your husband of 15 years.

You seem to want to push him out the door so that you can continue on with what is just another extramarital affair.

Take a hint - your new man doesn't seem as keen as you!

He clearly wants his cake and to be able to eat it too.

He isn't ready to call stumps on his marriage.

And maybe it is time for you to take a long, hard look at what you are doing and what you stand to lose.

Maybe this little bubble you are living in is about to burst!
