I was friends with a couple. Now I am only friends with the wife (my original friend). Her husband left her and their three children after 25 years of marriage and is shacking up with a younger woman. Together he and his mistress have a baby. The husband and my friend are not even legally separated, and are not divorced.
I just want to beat him over the head, but I won't do that. Where is his responsibility? His promises? Her sacred vows of marriage? What happened. They were married in the Catholic church. Why do men do this??? I feel like writing him a scathing email. There should be marriage police. I hate this feeling of helplessness.
