Dear Thelma: Second chance at love but same old deceit

STR2_AHB_ thelma_jilted again_0208

Ten years ago, I left my husband of 15 years because he had a few affairs. I could not take it anymore and decided to leave him, together with my children. I lived with my mum and led a happy life raising my children without getting any alimony. My son is working and my daughter is currently pursuing her degree at a public university. At 50, I am active in outdoor activities.

Two years ago, I met this guy in a temple. I was attending morning prayers before going to work, and we saw each other almost every morning on workdays. He is a divorcee. After a few weeks, we exchanged contact numbers and became friends. He is self-employed and lives near my house. We became closer, and agreed to give ourselves a second chance at love. Things went on well. My mum and children accepted him and we were happy.
