Today’s topic: Three’s a crowd Good morning Steve and Morning Crew, I have been married to my husband for 13 years and through out my marriage I have been extremely faithful. But my husband has placed me in a situation that disturbs me to my core. My husband tells me one night to get up so we could go dancing. Due to him never taking me out I jump at the offer. We’re going on a double date and have to stop to pick up his friend and his girlfriend. His friend’s girlfriend is running late so he steps outside to call her and my husband begins groping me. I feel uncomfortable, but he wants me to be spontaneous so I go with it. He heads to the friend’s bedroom. I’m feeling eerie at this point. We hear the friend’s front door open so my husband calls out to make sure it is the friend and not a stranger walking into his house. Before I know it, the friend walks into the room and pulls off his shirt and my husband tells me he is about to make my fantasy come true. What the hell!? All I can do is scream and run. Now he wants counseling. Counseling? I don’t think so. I think he has done this before. I’m so hurt, disgusted and can never look at him the same. I’m a Christian woman, but I know how to satisfy my man, or so I thought. I have a problem with bringing someone else in. Like I said, I’m a Christian, but I’m leaning towards leaving and never returning. If you can help me with some of this, please steer me in the right direction.
