When Kevin asked me if I was seeing another guy, I told him that I was not, and this other guy by the name of Dana was sitting there in my apartment across from as I was on the phone with Kevin. I know that Dana was suspicious as to what was going on. I was only seeing the guy for about four months. Even when I stopped seeing Dana, I never told Kevin about him or the fact that I met him through a dating service.
One night when I arrived home from work, Kevin was in my apartment with a grin on his face. I gave him permission to stay at my apartment while was away. The first he asked me was,
"Who's John?" and Who's Dana" I thought Oops! I was confronted with telling him the truth, so I told him. He found out my secrets by reading my diary. I told him that I was seeing a Christian guy by the name of John for only about a month, but I never told him about Dana.
I told Kevin that I met Dana through a dating service, and that he was in the arm forces. Kevin laughed, and he wanted to know his phone number, but I wouldn't give it to him. He asked if I had sex with him, but the truth I almost did lose my virginity to him, but before he went all the way, I told Dana, "no, that I was not ready."
I told Kevin what happened, and he thought that Dana tried to rape me, but he didn't. If he did then he would have force himself on me.
I really didn't like Kevin reading my diary at all. Low and behold! I found out that Kevin was dating somebody who I worked with because she told me. I was not sure if they even slept together, but Kevin did do a dishonest thing by seeing another girl behind my back.
When Kevin told me about it I asked why he was doing that, and not telling me about this girl in the first place. He pointed out we were not married, so he felt that he could see anybody he wanted. Then he brought up how I was seeing Dana without telling him in the first place. I realize now that I was just as bad as him.
Kevin and I are married now, and we have had 2 kids together, and I have been a faithful wife to him. I know that we should tell the truth to each other no matter how it hurts. If my son or daughter was having problems with someone or somebody I would want to them to tell us the truth.
