you continue to amaze me with all your politically correct husband. When your wife fucks her co worker that is not politically . A real man would have went and had a talk wioth Bobbie and I would have made him pay the price for having the nerve to come into my home and fuck. I don't care that nshe was my wife, she wouldn't be after I had seen the tape. Next after putting Bobbie in the hospital I would have went to her boss, well I would have went to my lawyer for a divorce and to sue her and Bobbies company because that is exactly what it was. When you get more balls I might read your stories...
I know that it is fiction, but without being drawn (or drowned) in the deep water of any theoretical debate, my sense is that fiction still needs to maintain the sense that similar characters COULD exist in real life and similar events COULD happen in real life.
I have to say that on a second read my sense of probability - namely, that a similar couple with similar problems could exist in real life AND successfully go through similar reconciliation process - was stretched to the point of breaking.
The plot is overloaded with both too much psychological baggage, complicating factors (such as worst case scenario type circumstances all over the wifes affair); damning characteristics (such as the well portrayed typical profile of the Narcissistic cheating wife and the wounded husband). It truly makes for a spectacular mess of broken lives
The problem is that once the author finished that part, he could not really undo this elaborate Gordic knot. Despite a lot of therapeutic efforts of all sorts, it still looked like going through a long to- do list in an effort to create a strange product -an unlikely hybrid of two people which for sound psychological reasons (some readers have thoughtfully listed similar reasons) most likely would have never found their way together in real life.
The overarching feeling I had: for some reason, the author could not find a way to give permission to this two people to go on with their lives. Despite glaring evidence he would not let them move on in doing so he most likely allowed them to relieve misery as a couple not too far down the road If the author were a therapist I would have warned: beware of projecting your own issues into the people you are supposed to help.
My experience in working with couples exposed me to the cold reality that the more risk factors the less of a chance for successful reconciliation.
Perhaps even a talented author may come to realize that taking upon oneself to prove that in fiction a determined author could turn even the most unlikely reconciliation into a credible story may not be (literary speaking) the best bet
I waited to read all 3 chapters before commenting on the story..And I found the reconciliation was too forced,as some of the other Readers mentioned..In the first chapter about the affair I fully agree with Peggytwitty that Julie's actions showed that She didnt care about her Husband and her marriage, She was fully aware of what She was doing..Not drunk or drugged..Fully sober She initiated the affair and practicly threw herself at Bobby,She would have continued it if Alan woudn't have found out.Then Her statements to Alan was paramound of giving notice that He couldn't satisfy Her,after all the times she refused to do the sexacts with Alan for all the years they were together ended all chances of reconciliation in real life..So She quit her Job because She didnt trust herself around Bobby still shows that it could happen again..We all felt for Alan and thought he was going for the divorce right then and there .. But getting them back together by bringing Denise into the plot felt forced and Alan having his 'not so' revenge fuck put Him into the same level as Julie..I would have prefered that Alan would have stayed friends with Denise until the divorce was final and afterward gotten together and had a great life .. This way even if He got divorced Denise would never trust Him either,as once a cheater always a cheater..As for the ending Julie's statement says it all and i quote, [ I try to remind myself that it will be Years,if ever,before Alan fully trusts me again. Anytime I tell him i'll need to be an hour late coming home from work, I can see that look on his face. He doesn't need to say a word-I know what He is thinking. ( and so do we all ) So i'm going out of my way to tell Him where i'll be,and when,and with whom .] I ask who wants to live that way?? Divorce and stop the bleeding.If they last another 5yrs i'd be surprised..So what if She gives Him blowjobs now ... It was a great fantasy story though lol and entertaing..all the comments give a lot of food for thoughts...as for the Guys that say they like slut Wives it's as long as its not their Wife that they have to watch and masterbate to..they keep hiding behind anonymous comments ..lol and its true Ohio you do make the guys wimps and losers in most of your storys..
I usually don't like reconciliation unless the initial transgression was unplanned and accidental, i.e. drunken hookup at a party. People do stupid things. This was a bit more planned affair and would have been longer lasting had she not been caught. I have less forgiveness for longer running affairs. However, the wife went into therapy and seems to have made some significant discoveries about herself that were clearly noticeable to her husband as well. Such self discoveries and real changes are uncommon and should be recognized and appreciated.
I didn't like the same old woman's whine about getting older with kids gone and feeling useless. I'm sure it's all true. Guess what, guys feel the same way as they get older. The ultimate BS here though is complaining that her sex life is boring when she is the reason it is and then happily trying all the new stuff with her lover. This seems to be stretching things a bit. Her reasons for cheating are boring. She has been a boring person. And it's her husband's fault?
I liked the husband's dalliance. It wasn't for revenge but instead for renewal. A unique approach.
In the end I was glad the characters got back together. I didn't feel that there was a lot of unfinished business between them and that the wife had fully faced her actions and was truly sorry. Nice job.
in this story. I can't vote on just one of these. I liked it, it was a little quick in the outcome but the emotions of what happens during an affair were very real and raw. The story was another well written work and I thank OHIO and who ever edits the work.
Though I don't get it. Why would you marry someone who is so sexually inhibited? I can't believe their are women out their who won't perform oral sex, or want it performed on them. Or who won't swallow for that matter. It hasn't been my experience. Nor can it be that the authors are just old (because god knows people didn't have sex in the 40's right), hell, I'm 50. Never had sex with a chick who didn't suck my dick. If you did run into this hypothetical chick who was so frigid she wouldn't suck your cock why marry her? Be honest, you had sex with your wife while still dating, its part of the process, exploring to see if you fit. So after finding out she's frigid, before you became so attached / involved, why force the relationship? Just don't get it, is it just a plot device?
i knew he would forgive, this author has that in him and always forgets that there is a thing called no reason and there is other women out there, divorce is one thing but leting bobby walk away to do it again is a sign of an idiot.
His wife did something out if character, where the notion of trust went out the door. The options were there, and he chose not to taken them. A nagging prospect, when the next one? And the one that shook the foundation, she need not work with him to have contact with him! That is cynical perhaps, but her choices and the consequences for both. A good plan b, to not have latent trust issuues. Leaving her, and she'd manage.
I thought this story was exceptionally realistic except I am afraid in true life people don't usually work so hard to overcome the heartache and grief wrought by infidelity. Alan's initial response to his wife's cheating was about right. He acknowledged his rage and desire for violent vengeance but was man enough to just send her away. Refusing the speak in any manner was correct too. It gave her the time she needed to own her mistakes instead of continuing to rationalize. Thats probably the most difficult part of the entire story. People, men and women are forever trying to shift blame and keep their selfish ego's intact. She did not do that, though I suspect most would. I know from experience having been divorced for less than a year. Its totally irreconcilable but I am still having arguments with myself that I should have had with her twenty five years ago. Perhaps thats my motivation to keep reading these type stories, maybe someday like the characters I read about I can come to face my own demons. Bet you never thought of your stories as therapy. Go figure....email@example.com
Alan is worse of a slut than his wife. You would have been far better off to give him a set of balls and have him toss the wife than drag him down to a level no better than she - rutting animals unable to control his dick. I stopped reading as soon as he nailed the slut, who obviously had emotional issues. No woman with any shred of self respect would take a "man" to bed on those terms. But I guess Alan wasn't much of a man.
And I'm not one of those "all women are sluts" misogynists who want to shred every babe who ever makes a mistake. I usually enjoy the way you manage to work out a reconciliation. Not this time. This was just plain WRONG on so many levels.
But then it's just a story, albeit a bad one. I wish I could give this zero stars.
I approve of 'revenge sex', but the cheater must be told about it as in this story. There should have been two sessions with Denise to properly balance the events. The cheater needs to experience what the victim went through.
very weak story ...
two wrongs NEVER, EVER make a right....sorry
That's the question someone asked in a previous comment. The most obvious reason, and the reason the husband fears, is that Bobby just turned her on much more than her husband. Since she loved her husband a plausible reason would be embarrassment. Oral sex and/or different positions is not something that "just isn't done", at least not today. Not doing these things would brand her and "old fuddy duddy", probably something she was feeling that caused the affair in the first place. The reason she didn't do this with her husband is that with Bobby, he expected it and not doing it would be more embarrassing than going along with it . With her husband, she might have felt it would make her look like a slut in his eyes.
there both cheats dont see point in there marriage
Oh-hum. Another JPB clone tale. No guts..no glory.
Great story Ohio. Your stories are thought provoking and have a real life flavor to them, in this case a story of two good people with human flaws but enough love and courage to work things through. Hope you're doing well and that you will write again when the wind blows in the right direction.... Thanks. PS Isn't it just amazing that there are so many simpletons that hate every story of redemption and forgiveness but are so shallow that they keep coming back and writing the same old comments every time????
I am generally against the two fucks make it ok logic - but this time it seemed to be primarily to prove he could fuck someone - anyone not just get back at her. creative idea.
When I vote I look at 2 sets of info - did I enjoy the story line (whether I agree with the actions or not) and 2 was it written well technically - my 5 for this one is because i felt it was an excellent story from both perspectives.
So now he has a sexual slave for life who can't turn him down or refuse him anything. What was that downside again?
For THINKING people, it's about mistakes and redemption. People do bad things, as noted by the author. That doesn't mean they need to STAY bad.
excellently written and held my interests right to the end, however I also am of the mind that two wrongs won't help an already severe situation. I gave the first two high grades, but the last got a two star from me.
With this one if you push the subject mater aside it is well written. As is standard for this excellent writer.
Everyone made pretty damn good comments. Really liked PeggyTwitty, Kanga's, Fictionwriter101? Ohio made her out to be too nasty and uncaring in what she did and told him. No man would have been able to get over her telling husband all of it. If she had kept the details to herself and just kept apologizing...maybe. She destroyed his self-image as a man and there was no way he could have lived with it for long. Been there done that. I replaced the disrespectful, cheating bitch.
In my experience, a woman or man will not cheat unless they wanted to and were willing to take the risk. It is never done out of love for their spouse and always out of dis-respect. It is always for their own rationalized but selfish reasons. I don't buy any other reason and I am not all that opionated. I love romantic reconciliation stories! More!
He still should have split the sheets. Forgiveness is not a virtue. TK U MLJ LV NV
Tazz317 is right on, there were two many first. She's been married to you for over 20 years and never gave you a bj or did doggy with you and Bobby the stud comes along and he gets it all. Next Bobby would have been ass fucking the slut. Like I have said before Ohio, 70% of the time a marriage won't survive cheating. When men cheat no one has pity for him, he's just a fucking dog, but when a woman cheats the first thing out of someone month is what did he do. It's a double standard that we dumb ass men are letting go on. Man up and dump the slut.
The bitch made a HUGE mistake, and she deserves to carry the guilt around for the rest of her life. Alan really should have divorced her cheating ass and beat the dogshit out of Bobby. She hurt a good man and caused him to break his own marriage vows. Her sister should have beat her ass twice a day the whole time she stayed there.
Story very entertaining and mature. Thanks for sharing this gem.

Cum guzzlers like cuckdogg & crew have driven out the skilled writers so illiterate monks and eunuchs can submit endless cuck stories they can devour then rail against. Fuck those pussies, not one stiff dick between the lot of 'em.
the story has been available for six years.
It's unquestionably one of the best of the best on this site.
And, best of all, it was submitted before that illiterate idiot DWornock appeared as a blemish on Literotica.
I don't know. The saying two wrongs don't make a right semi applies here. Dianne got Bobby twice, Alan had Denise only once.
I'm haunted by this tale. It bothers me personally. After twenty years of vanilla sex she gives a stranger a rainbow of variety while the husband got none. If she wasn't caught it would have went on indefinitely.
Fuck that. She would be history. End of story.
I voted a 5 and was driven to comment by the crass, stupid, and unhelpful comments by the anonymous contingent. They are so obviously in the minority that I wonder why Literotia doesn't remove that option.
This was a inspiring treatment of a difficult subject that many people have endrued with vastly differing results. It offers one path to resolution.
I applaude Ohio a one of the best at weaving a good story with sensitive subjects.
I hope to read his efforts again soon.
he smoked the fattest cock, got a buggered cornhole, betrayed!
This story is one of a few that really hits at the hurt felt,when your partner decides to have a bit of strange...
No one knows what it's like until you actually feel it - when it happens to you.
This story DID - in spades !!
Finally a guy that didn't move out of his house. He didn't cry and got on with his life. He proved that he could live with out his wife. She grew up and when he got some strange she saw how it felt. It took some work and they made it threw. Not bad...4 stars
huecuck, the only true admitted cuckold humping this site, spewed his misspelled opinion, any other cuckolds willing to come out of the closet? huecuck must be getting lonely being the only guy here who admits to being a cuck.
She cheats and it's her fault. I get that. He cheats and...it's still her fault? Are you fucking kidding me?
He needs to own his shit. He cheated and it's not her fault. He chose to fuck someone else and the reasons are irrelevant. He is as wrong as she is. Why didn't she kick him out for another? Why didn't he get ignored for 30 days and see a therapist, quit his job and generally come crawling back apologetically?
Why not? Because the author is a helmet wearing, short bus riding moron who couldn't find his ass with both hands and a map.
She does it how many times? She denies him stuff she does for dickhead?
But he hurt her? Fucking give me a brake. She should be thankful he takes her skanky ass back.
I was right about the cuck alert in part two. He takes her back. What a wimp.
As usual, a very nicely written story, the husband is surely brave to decide to keep the wife, i sure wouldn't, and i am not also sure he kept her out of love, for me cheating is a red line that means there is no going back, but if some people can live with it ....
all women are sorry after they cheat and get CAUGHT. I am sorry but you made the man a wimp here no real man would take back a woman like that. He should have divorced her and kicked her to the curb and let her family and kids know what kind of slut she was.
Cheaters don't deserve a second chance at a good marriage.
I wasn't going to comment on this story till I read a few of the comments previous to this. I only wondered how they managed to read a different story than I had. Do browsers manage to move words around....'re-cut the movie'....that would be something. The story in its own way, I think, pretty much answers 'almost' all the criticisms/complaints listed by them. Frankly I'm pretty sure I myself would've been gone for even less than what she'd done, but then again I'm "REAL", with human foibles (oh yeah; I got lotsa foibles) and all, and Alan has the 'luxury' of being fictitious.....so it was easier for him to eventually forgive her as much as he managed. In short, you came up with... imagined... a better man than I(?), and to those critics, I know they've heard/read it before; IT'S A FRIGGIN STORY and believe it or not, it's about someone other than yourself...a walking/talking/what if piece of a talented writer's imagination. It would be like you could/would criticize GOD himself for creating any person in this world different than yourself! There are a million different scenarios (many or most of which are) in this section of Lit. over & over & over again; and you come out, almost violently criticizing one that approaches the topic in a different way.
C'mon...you CAN do it, you willingly do it at the movies all the time....pluck down a fortune, willingly/knowingly accept the impossible (think ANY action movie at all)...you leave your disbelief in the hat-check room...be entertained.... then pick it back up on your way out the door (then later, you may even give them a few 'more' bucks for the video rental or purchase).
Sex is not the most important thing in a marriage. Trust is! Without trust all you've got is stomach problems. I am NOT into wimps or wives (fictional or otherwise) that can't be trusted and to make it worse, then lie to my face, so I read enough of Ohio's stories to see what happened and then the end of his stories to see how "the husband" dealt with what happened to determine if I want to read the rest of the story! Next!
To understand Ohio, you have to know that deep down he is a cuck who desires humiliation. To cover it, he has some tale of betrayal on the part of his slut wife, but he always takes her back. That way he can feel his delicious pain, humiliation and degradation, pretend to protest it, then cuck his little heart by taking the slut back. It would be funny if it wasn't so obvious. Out and out cucks are honest. Ohio lies to himself.
His testosterone disables him from signing his name or writing his own stories. He has all the time in the world to definitively dissect the psyche of what he terms a 'cuck writer' but shrinks from submitting his own work for review. Irony abounds anew in Literotica.
And, I would submit that other authors on this site seem to quote or acknowledge him in their own stories, when including a mention of literotica (sort of breaking the fourth wall= so to speak), and YES, a story that can allow for reasonable reconciliation is always a more satisfying read than a basic BTB farce with no character development. Ohio always seems to be the kind of guy that I would like to spend a night drinking slowly in a bar talking to, and hearing stories from. A person who has been there and done that and STILL managed to retain both humility and humanity. I'm not sure how I passed this story over before, but felt it worth mentioning this one point: Seems that when the cheating spouse willingly goes to therapy, the reconcilliation ALWAYS seems more plausible. Just an observation of a master author on this site that others looking at his work might see highlighted and well worth emulating. Problem is- you still have to get the dialogue right, and on some of these earlier works, EVEN Ohio still had some issues with that. Well, one day I'll be sure that I have read everything contained here by him, and that will be soon. Thanks Ohio! Literotica fans do owe you a great debt, as you certainly proved yourself a trailblazer in the genre!
Exceptionally well-written. I thought the portrayals of emotion were among the best I've read, and I mean Alan's, Julie's and Denise's. I was rooting for Alan and Denise to end up together, but I get the reconciliation, too.
Another Ohio story about a weak assed wimp and a cheating slut. I wish I could give it less than one star. I wish Lord slamfuck would shut the fuck up!
"The whole time her eyes had been tightly closed, and her cheeks were wet with her tears."
Better hope she is thinking of you and not Bobby.
"She didn't look happy—she looked determined."
When she blew Bobby she was mesmerized by his cock. This is not how you want your first bj with your wife to go. They should have waited on that.
I am a firm believer in reconciliation and that a marriage can be stronger after an affair. You did a good just of showing how she changed. I just think he was a little to forgiving. His side of the story needed more development in the beginning. At the end, his affair served as a handy device to trigger sex with his wife. However, his initial acceptance of her into the home and into his heart needed more work.
He didn't need to tell her about his tryst. She is the one who caused all their trouble and she didn't deserve the courtesy of being told about it.
