    We have been married for over 50 years but very soon after we wed my husband was supposed to come to my place of work to pick up. I worked out off the beaten track where there were no buses or phones and he never showed up. I waited for over an hour absolutely petrified that something dreadful had befallen him. Luckily, a neighbour passed by and took me home. My husband came home apparently sober put claims that he cannot remember anything about where he was, who he was with to this day. I want to believe him because this is like an open ulcer eating away at me, should I believe him???

    No, absolutely that was a lie. But it was 50 years ago. How have things been since?

    I think you shouldn’t wait fifty more years to get therapy or address this with him if this is haunting you so badly.

    In the ensuing 50 years has he given you any reason to think that this was a pattern or a one time thing that happened in the 70’s?

    Let’s say he made a stupid mistake once 50 years ago and has been a good partner since then. How will obsessing over this help you? Let’s say that you learn the truth – what will you do? What line has to be crossed for you to walk away now when you’re in your 70’s?

    Let this go. If the truth finds you… deal with it then.

    Is there something that’s prompted you to ask this 50 years later?
