My husband is having an affair. It’s been going on for 3 years now and I’ve known about it since we first started dating. She’s a beauty at 23 feet long, sleek lines, bespoke and Kevlar coated. How can I possibly compete with the other love in his life….., his ocean rowing boat?

Yesterday was a big day for us. After 16 months of being together, I finally got to meet Charlie’s other woman, “Blossom”. As you can see by the photo, Charlie is trying very hard to conjure my enthusiasm, however I’m not great at sharing, don’t have such sleek lines and am not about to physically cross the Pacific with him in 2016.

Can I find a way to stop this affair? Sadly not. But if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. What I can do though is get to know her properly and learn to understand their relationship. They’ve been through a lot already, and she did manage to save him in 2012 from a near fatal typhoon.

So you see, in 18 months, I will have to pass my loving baton over to her, and hope that she can take care of him just as well the second time around.  Surely after Pacific 2016, their relationship might reach its natural conclusion? Hopefully!
