Allow me the opportunity to ask you a series of personal questions: Is your wife cheating on you? How are you so sure that she is not? What if she is, what will you do about it? Will you do anything at all, I mean really, would you? Had your wife ever done something that she normally would not do? Have you ever called to find out she is somewhere you would never expect her to be? Tell me, why was she there? Why on that day did she decide to do something out of her norm, and what exactly did she do? Could she have possibly cheated on you? Have I done a good job planting the seed of suspicion into your mind?
Who was the owner of this phone number? I’d often question that when looking through the call activity from my phone bills. There were more outgoing calls to that number than any other on the list, and the calls weren’t made from my phone, they were all coming from the second line linked to the account, that being my wife’s personal cell phone line.
I first saw the mysterious number four months ago, just after my wife and I had talked things out and decided to live together once again. We had been separated for two months after what we thought was the downward spiral that would result in an ugly divorce. It got to the point where we couldn’t stand being in the same house together, so I would pull overtime at work any chance I got, and she would either spend the evening dining at the Olive Garden, or window shopping with her family out of town. Hmph, The main reason we moved further out was to get away from them.
Eventually, we agreed to separate and work out personal issues in our own separate fashion. I didn’t do much but see a shrink and go to a couple of anger management group sessions held at the local church every Thursday evening, but I’ll tell ya this, the secret to improving and maintaining a healthy relationship is to see other couples that are going through issues just as fucked-up as yours. It’ll remind you that your issues aren’t that bad. Anyways,
Time went by, and we met, talked it all out and got the relationship ball rolling again. There was a magic to it that we did not have before the breakup. We both came back to this thing with a different approach and mindset. Not only did I now know how to handle her issues, but I was also able recognized what I was doing that would trigger her and cause an issue. We had improved, and so too did our marriage. Everything was all good, that is until I started seeing that mysterious number pop up on the phone bills. So again, I ask, who is the owner of this number?
I first thought to ask my wife, being as though the calls were made from her phone, but I did not want to create an issue, besides, things were going so well, I didn’t want any problems that would bring us back to that miserable state we had been in for so long. I never told her, and I never admitted to receiving detailed copies of our phone bills. She never knew that I could see a call list, so I didn’t want her to change anything from her knowing that I had them. It still didn’t answer my question, and no one would be able to tell me but her. I had to think of another strategy. Continue Reading
