Like so many women, our subscriber finds herself in a 23-year-old marriage with two children and an indifferent husband.
One day she returned home unexpectedly and found her housekeeper on her knees, performing an intimate act on her husband. She fled and simply did not speak of it, but her husband started sleeping with the woman under her roof. After two years he is now so brazen that he touches the housekeeper in front of their children.
This woman, finding herself driven to the edge, begged her fellow AmoMama subscribers to advise her. Should she divorce this man, or take his behavior as part of what women put up with to maintain a marriage?

What did our readers say?
The advice and the answers to our subscriber's tale varied. Some advocated for instant action, others counseled patience.
While some were sympathetic to her dilemma, others extolled her to show self-respect and act to protect herself and the children.
Some readers expressed anger, and some even lashed out at her, telling her she was disrespecting her children by allowing them to witness her humiliation.
Others pointed out that her very first statement had been about how unhappy her marriage was, and a separation would be the healthiest course for the family.
Many wisely advised her to gather evidence of his infidelity, get a lawyer and take back control of her life, rebuild her self-esteem, and teach her young son that this is not how a good man treats his wife.
The AmoMama team and their fellow subscribers wish this woman courage and luck in dealing with her problems and hope that the hundreds of encouraging and sensible voices that answered her plea will have been of help.
