a beautiful story

Very sad, and in a way incomplete, but still just right. You captured a moment, and made it believeable.

The rest of us can only hope to write this well.

So, where are the squelching pussy, the drooling lips and the spewing cock? Instead, we have to put up with life, love and disaster with a beautiful, emotional delivery. This is well beyond the purview of most Lit stories. But so well done.

...

Well written as always, This is the first of your work I have seen criticized so heavily. That is undoubtedly due to people putting themselves in that situation. It is fair to point out here however, that women tend to see the male character as plausible and also that the male character isn’t a coward. The reverse being true when men comment. That does point to the differences between what you (female) wrote and what a Male writer would have done. I understand why you have gone for him holding her at the end but I don’t think that level of affection was needed for ‘But I can finally see how much I stand to lose….’ Him simply saying I love you to much to leave you, but it’ll take time before the intimacy returns, seems more realistic.

Is Selana REAL this fucking stupid

The author in defense of the HUG and wimpness wrote

But as for him "taking her back." He didn't. Never once did he say so, in fact, he said the opposite... Think of it this way... the whole "getting familiar" with everything--routine, life, etc... is what has caused their marriage to collapse in the first place. It's what she has done, it's what he has done...

a typical Bitch response. He worked hard and provided. SHE fucked another man or has been for a whule. How are those things the same?


they have both let familiarity and routine erode their marriage. So what is the first thing they do when they discover the devastating consequences of what they have done? The FAMILIAR. That's the hug. It's not intimacy or reconciliation. It's irony... this is what we humans do, again and again, to sabotage ourselves... the same thing, the same pattern, over and over... and here they go again... yes, it's sad... but it's life. Welcome to the real world? Thank you all for your feedback. Selena

Husbands that discover the wife FUCKING another man in their martial bed then not showing the least bit of remorse do NOT ever HUG hug their cheating wife 5 minutes after finding out.

Its speaks volumes that Selena thinks that reaction she write is the real world. holy mother of God what a kook!!!

What

is so great that people can give high marks for a story about a worthless slut and her hardworking husband.So many authors on this site give as a reason for being a slut the fact that the guy she married is working his guts out to give the slut a good life.

Eros has many faces.

Eros has many faces, and some of them are dark, sad ... all of them are human.

This is an *erotic* story, in the classical sense.

Hope they work it out

Loving wives always seems to give people mixed feelings lol just wondering are the ones that are so bitter the ones that have found themselves in similar situations? Did they fix their broken down marriage by kicking someone out of house, home and heart? Did they love the person they kicked out? Did they genuinely feel better afterwards or did they feel like a part of them had been ripped out and dragged behind a horse through a bramble bush? obviously the couple in this story still love each other deeply but they have been hurt. Its hard to say how you would act when you see stumble in on the person you love being in the middle of a sex session in your own home. Personally I think I would get the fuck out of there find a bar and see haw much of jack would fit inside me before my body says its too much then ill think about it. This story does make you think I believe that is what the singer and the writer were trying here. Great story but at the same time not, know what I mean? lol

Beautifully Written

Horrifying and touching. I am suprised with the fact
that most recognized its beauty as more important than
the lack of a satisfactory resolution. Yes, I would love to pet you Kitten, but I have a wife! Used to have a cat, but
losing him was too painful to repeat, losing a wife would be much worse.

Its over, long ago

This poor man. Still working and striving to provide her with all the things that make her life more pleasant. Dedicating his whole being for her safety, comfort, security and happiness. And his reward? He has only now discovered that the precious work that it took two people, working in concert, decades to create had been destroyed by a wanton, untrustworthy, spiteful being that went so far as to deliberately prepare meals that she knew would be unpalatable to him. A woman who brings strangers into his home and defiles it with unimaginable acts of infidelity and betrayal.

She is a master of illusion. She has kept him working , exerting his all, for a non existant ideal. All the while she is creating new ways to demean him and to destroy that which he thought was most precious to both of them.

He is married to her only in his mind. She has discarded him and his needs a long time ago. She has unilaterally divorced her personal wants and existence from the person who has faithfully cherished her and provided for her in all ways. She used him.

He does not have to hit her. He needs do nothing that would be used to justify her lack of love, concern, and caring. She already has done her worst. Meanwhile he has tried his best.

His first step is a lawyer to begin the legal separation. The next is the best investigator he can find to try to salvage what physical assets she had not yet squandered as she appropriated the family's assets to her personal selfish deeds. He needs the investigator to provide evidence of her infidelities and other misdeeds. Then he needs to consider the children. Are they even his? Whether or not, what does he want to do, how to provide for them?

He can never go back to her. She has taken the love of his life, the purpose of his life. She has destroyed all that he has held dear. Distance may be painful, but the daily contact with a creature so vile, she is still unremorseful and unrepentent, would be much worse and more destructive.

His life has ended.

Thank you for posting this for us.

love and marriage

Like any partnership, just holding up your own end isn't
enough. Sometimes you have to remember the person on the other end.

Atrophy

I hate the cheating stories but this one you got right. Time changes people. You have to be committed to each other and you have to grow together or you both atrophy. I hope this was a wake up call for them. I can see them staying together but it was a very bad way fro his wife to get his attention.

I did get the feeling that she did love him though and was at her wits end as to what to do to get things to change. Some people when they are powerless do negative things to get our attention, hence the lousy cooking. My dog and cats do this as well so it's something life does.

Apathetic Apathy & Pain Deliverance

And the point was?

She fucks around in his bed and claims braindeadedness [read that bored ] but says emotionally "now that I have your attention [huh] please hold me... my loving cuck".

And he says "First let me fill up the tub - then I can hold you - under - for - a while.

How stupidly sensitive with typical female logic from a woman writer no less.

Aha - now we understand - or mostly not.

Kind of a shame this bad - no rotten apple in your "H" portfolio. I wonder why?

Not sad

This story is not sad and pathetic as everyone seems to think. It is just true to life. "The mass of men," wrote Henry Thoreau, "lead lives of quiet desperation." "By a seeming fate, commonly called necessity, they are employed, as it says in an old book, laying up treasures which moth and rust will corrupt and thieves break through and steal. It is a fool's life, as they will find when they get to the end of it, if not before."

Morality and Responsibility

She gave up on the marriage. He didn't. She is unfit to continue as mother and wife. She has proven that she only cares for herself. The reason for monogamy is the guarded passing of genes. By taking someone into her self and into the martial bed, she announces that he no longer is her choice to hold that singular station. But by doing so she forfeits all rights to hearth and home. His only recourse is to ostracize her from all that is part of him. Family and home must be held against her. Family and friends must be told of her actions. Remember they are her actions and they do not impune on his nature. They are her actions vile and corrupt. Unjustifiable. She has raped him in his own bed. His first act of violence should be against that bed, in her presence to show his utter contempt for her. She is a whore to cheap for coin. Wedding vows are very specific. They last until death or dissolution of the marriage. Even were they separated her actions would be adultery. I have read the other posts and some say she loves him? Those people do not know the meaning of the word. If she truly loved him there would be no story. This story for all that it has no proper ending is still a very good story. Weep not for the whore save your tears for those who never gave up on the family as she did.

Makes you look at relationships different

This definitely made me see things a little different, though I still doubt I could forgive her.

Infidelity?

This is an interesting take of the problem. It seems that the essential problem with infidelity is the inadequate sense of loyalty in/by the cheating spouse. Everyone can be tempted, can be aroused by a sexy, handsome/beautiful potential sex partner, or simply be seduced by sweet words and sentiments. The habitual partner/spouse hasn't a chance unless the one tempted can put these emotions in the bottle and stopper it. That often requires more than common sense or good intentions. Such interest/attraction is going to be hotter than fidelity will be, thus only strength of character and a powerful sense of loyalty will prevent the disaster. To forgive or not to forgive becomes the central problem for the partner who was cuckolded (M or F) but trust will be the lost dimension of the loving partnership. Because the infidelity may not be obvious at the beginning chances are that it may repeat, becoming easier all the time. Once may be viewed as a mistake by a spouse and has a small chance of being "overlooked." More than once, no.

The feel of truth

You captured what I see in many ways. Men often define themselves by their obligations and accomplishments, women by their relationships. In his mind he was meeting his obligations, accomplishing the male role of provider and protector. And he missed that she needed more. But for reasons that are true but not defendable, she couldn't/wouldn't tell him what was in her head. So she goes looking for something more. Not even telling herself what she is looking for. And she finds a substitute for what she thinks she is missing, angry because her husband doesn't see. And everybody loses

Sad

True

The real problem perhaps?

Pardon, but I did not read all of the comments...

With that said though, I think the real problem that many couples face is to keep communication open. I dare say that no man (or woman) can even begin to fathom what thier partner needs unless they are talking together. It seems to me that the condo was a badly missed oportunity on thier parts to re-open communications between them, perhaps it was in trouble before that point to some degree.

Had she said something such as: "But I wanted the oportunity to get away with just us two with no nieghbors or anything to distract us so we could reconnect." Or words to that effect, then communications might have had a chance to be re-established. I am sure if he said in return, something like: "I miss spending time with you as well, why don't we go to Hawaii or the Caribean instead? Or Alcapulco? That way you don't have to cook or clean, just be my lover." Such a thing might have thrilled her. Instead, it seems like she looked for that feeling of "connectedness" with some random stranger and reached this empass.

I think we all know how hard it is to reestablish trust once it has been violated, and it is that that adultery often destroys. The question in his mind will be if he can ever truely trust her again. It will take a load of work to save this marriage, if they are commited to it. This does not seem to have been an "open Marriage" or even a couple that had a fantasy on his part of her taking a lover (at least how it was presented). I had a brother who caught his wife in shall we say a comprimised position and he ran both of them naked out of thier house and down the street. Then her lover had the brass to try to sue him for embarassment. The jury laughed him out of court and assigned all legal fees on both sides to him. (A few of them also told him privately that he was lucky not to have been shot by my brother, as they would have exonerated my brother.)

The real question is this, does he love her enough that he is willing to not kick her cheating posterior out? Is she willing to do whatever it takes to earn his trust back? Are they both willing to learn from past mistakes and be honest and talk to each other? Another question that must be going through his mind is if she is so busy with her lover(s), has she been paying attention to what the kids are up to and doing? And what does it say to the kids if one parent demonstrates that it is not important to keep your sworn word?

I am interested to see what the author does with these two and if she can show all of what is needed by both sides to get the marriage back on track.

Not this one...

This reader had nearly given up "Loving Wives", for the pain is too great. This reader wouldn't have seen this title at all, but Selena_Kitt was a contest winner. This was the most different story in her repertoire and this reader wanted to see why she did it. ...and he's happy because he's one that lives on hope.

Marriage Over

Sorry but she did too much damage and doesn't seem to understand, she not only broke her word but she did it in their bed and who knows how many times. This will stay with him forever and will make talking to each other that much harder. Sometimes it's easier to move on and he should. Powerful story, a finish would be nice, thanks.

Echh

So many comments trying to parse things...excuses, reasons, motives, bullshit. Forget all the fantasyland bullshit for a second and look at the facts; she cheated, in the marital bed to boot. Whatever happened to bring things to that point are now totally irrelevant since the marriage is now a total fucking farce. Any two people that miserable with each other need to get the hell away from each other and find someone else that makes them happier. All the shades of grey have nothing to do with the reality of here and now, and all the wishy-washy, useless talk changes nothing. It's not rocket science and occams' razor applies, so use it and move on.

A woman's fantasy

or a man's if they are caught cheating. Why? Well, it is his/her fault not the cheaters. Cheating is supposed to get the attention of the person who has failed the marriage. The cheater is not at fault, it has to be the other spouse so they will fogive and forget what the cheater has done. In fact, the logic here is that there was no cheating except by the spouse who failed to communicate, meet the needs of, show enough love for the spouse who cheated. My gosh, who would not want to cheat if that is why they can cheat and not pay any penalty, face any concequences because of course the other spouse is so besotted by them that they can forgive anything, over and over again. What a sexual fantasy that is. I wonder if a man would write a story like this? HMMMMMMM! Great writer, great writing, on a site designed for fantasy, even one that is hard to believe.

It is so sad...

I didn't know the song, so I listened to it before I read your story. Good job of telling the story behind the song. I enjoy the "song-stories" Jake Rivers holds invitation, I hope you enter one. My favorite was "Bed of Roses" by Joesephus... which isn't surprising, I loved all his stories, well almost all.

You don't imply the final loss here though, and I think that's a shame. I came to this because of your "How to" story about appreciating a man. It was very well done, and I think you missed it here.

I've been married 40 years, and I know what it takes to make a marriage work. No one is perfect, and we both have to accept that. Still there are a few things that form a bedrock, and the act of fucking another in the marriage bed while cooking dinner... that's the ultimate in disrespect.

You are right about how little sometimes a person needs from another, male or female. Still, what is needed is needed absolutely. I think you understand it's not the cheating, couples can and do get past that all the time. I mentioned Joesephus' one of the things I loved were his reconciliation stories... but there is no hope here.

Even more than in the song, she'd let her values fade. It breaks your heart to see so much loss and such failure to communicate. I loved to hate the disrespect of the lover with his promise to continue later. The last ergs of a relationship draining as the husband vented. It's just so sad.

As a shrink I have heard tales like this during marriage counseling sessions. Not so lovingly expressed. Not so beautifully written but the same story.

You really nailed the feelings that so many have had in such situations. Well done and a lesson in love and pain for all.

Absolutely NO understanding of basic human psychology and behavoir... just a complete waste of time. This is also, not posting in the correct category... since NOTHING in this story is erotic or about a loving wife. Please don't post anymore until you improve.

Powerful story but incomplete

This story evokes powerful feelings but doesn't really do anything with them. It is somewhat unrealistic, given the background on the husband, that he could calmly accept finding his wife in bed with another man. He has a rough and tumble past. He may mature but that past doesn't go away, especially when strongly provoked. Then the author tries to get into the reasons why. What a pathetic exercise but also how realistic. They live a life like millions of others, somewhat satisfying but also with it's disappointments. The failing is entirely hers. She is the one who turned dissatisfaction with her CHOSEN life into a reason to cheat on her husband. So he's not a great listener. Many men are not. A lot of women are completely irrational half the time. Neither issue is a reason for cheating. This isn't a perfect world.. You either accept the conditions you live under or work to improve them. SHE chose to break their marriage. All her reasoning is rationalization. He didn't cheat on her, he is working hard to provide for her, he loves and supports her to the best of his ability. She has a middle age crisis and cheats.
The story then effectively stops and the reader is left to wonder, what now? The reader can only answer for themselves, with their own background and feelings. It could range from dropping the bitch and lover into the ground to forgiving her and building a new life together. We don't know enough about the characters to really guess how it will end up. All we can do is fill in the blanks with ourselves. The story is powerful because it does draw us in to that position, wondering what comes next. I personally find it a little unfulfilling because I read a story to get the complete story, not just a taste of one. But some stories are written like this, to deliberately not be complete. The purpose was to evoke an emotion and in that it seems successful.

Good.

Pretty sad. More true to life than most guys will ever admit. Shock and disbelief are much more likely to show up than the standard-ish "I'll kill the twat, and her little dog too! Muahahaha! After I drain the bank accounts into offshore holdings, I can unleash my inner ninja!" scenario found hereabouts. But then, what would be the point of escapism if one couldn't escape the troubles of their world. At least from time to time.

vile male bashing hateful stuff

the poster who just made that comment about how wonderful this sotry is fucking idiot.

Molly made the offensive charge that she cheated JUST t to get his attention.

so it JIM's fault she fucked other men? If Molly was caught up in the daily grind of life .... so was Jim. If so why was the daily grind for her so bad that she to cheat on Jim JUST to get his attention?


Jim asked why... Molly mentioned his response about his refusal to go vacation. Molly said he missed the point.

then Molly never explained it. If MOLLY is truly sorry doesnt Jim deserve an explanation WHY she cheated ?..
