My husband is a great companion to me; we laugh, cry and fight with each other but in the end of, we are each other’s safe haven. Even though he shared everything with me, I never really cared about my husband’s past or his previous flings. All that mattered was the present and I always made sure to follow these rules wholeheartedly. I did have an idea as to who his exes were and that was enough for me to know. I had told him about my past as well and he had no problem with it all. After all, we loved each other very dearly.
My husband has a big social circle. We both valued our individual time as well, so having fun with our friends was always a good way to keep the balance in the relationship. One day, my husband was pretty ecstatic about hosting a party since his best friend was coming back from the USA. I had never met Shalini but as my husband described her, she seemed like a really nice person who was bubbly, friendly and super cool. And I could see the excitement that my husband couldn’t contain. She must be someone really cool!
And so, the day came when all of his friends swarmed into our home. I had hosted a lavish dinner party and I had put quite the effort into making it all a success. And then she walked in. Shalini was beautiful, tall and quite confident. She seemed very cheerful and it was really nice having her over. I could see how happy my husband was to reunite with his best friend. But amidst it all, I suddenly heard my husband’s friends gushing over how amazing Shalini still looks, considering all the time she spent with Rushil. It seemed a bit weird and I couldn’t ask them about it because I was eavesdropping on them anyways. And so, I slid into the conversation, and then got to know that Shalini and my husband were actually exes! This shocked me way too much.
And suddenly, I started feeling insecure. Firstly, my husband didn’t tell me his best friend was actually his ex! To add to the fire, she was much prettier and even more confident than me. How can exes even stay best friends, I wondered! It was outrageous and not practical at all. I was scared that the closeness might just rekindle old feelings and I couldn’t imagine what it would be like. And so, I subtly grabbed hold of my husband and took him to our room only to hear him say ‘sorry.’ I looked with astonishment in my eyes and he finally said that he thought I would feel very insecure with this fact. He further assured me that he only believed her to be his best friend and nothing else.
Their romance was dead long back and he had no ties to that whatsoever. All of this was happening so fast that I had no time to react to it all. I continued to put a happy face in front of the guests and until everybody went away at night, I didn’t say much to my husband except pretend to be his lovely wife.
Now I can’t help but think should I forgive my husband for keeping this secret to me? I don’t want to because it makes me feel horrible enough to never trust him again. It hurts the most because my husband and I never keep any secrets from each other but now after this, I don’t know if I should trust him with his words or not.
