Letter FROM the Other Woman

Margaret Minnicks has been an online writer for many years. She writes articles that are interesting to her readers.


Dear Wife,

Congratulations! You won! In fact, you won when you and your husband got married. However, I must tell you that I have been having an affair with your husband for the past three years. During those three year, I tried to pretend there was no guilt on my part because I told myself I would never fall in love with a married man. He claimed that he felt certain what we were doing could be justified because he was not being satisfied at home.

When we first met, there was an attraction; a very strong attraction. The newness of the affair was exciting for both of us. We spent many precious hours alone; just the two of us. We shared no candlelight dinner at famous restaurants, no vacations in romantic places, no fancy shopping sprees or even a leisurely walk in the park. We were very discrete. We stayed behind closed doors. We made certain that no one knew about us. We left no evidence because we covered our tracks. We are very careful not to leave any bread crumbs behind.


Your husband is a wonderful man, and I hope you can forgive him. I am proud of him and you should be proud of him as well. He never said anything bad about you or the five wonderful children the two of you are raising. I have never met you, but I am sure you are a special person. In fact, under other circumstances, I know we could have been best friends.

I know your husband did not belong to me. He often whispered your name when we made love. I pretended not to notice, and I never brought it to his attention.

Last Christmas Eve, I was the one who called your house at 2:00 a.m. I only wanted to hear his voice, but it was you who answered the telephone. I am truly sorry for waking you up or interrupting your love making session. When I hung up without saying a word, I wondered if he had whispered my name in your ear.

How It Started

It all started because we both wanted it. We didn't set out to hurt you, but the more your husband and I spent time together, the more I was drawn to him emotionally. And I pushed it to the back of my mind that he was married.

He never lied to me about being married. I went into this with my eyes wide open. I knew he would never leave you for me. To be honest with you, I never wanted him to leave you and marry me because I feared that one day I would find myself in your place and someone else would be the other woman writing to me.

I am writing to you because I have begun to feel guilty. I know I have to end this relationship because it is affecting me much more than I thought it would. I want to feel whole again, and I cannot do so while I know I am the other woman in your marriage. It is hard letting your husband go, but I must do so. It is very hard to end the affair because we have become very good friends as well as sex partners. I know this has been a dead end relationship, but I continued it anyway.

Confession Time

Since this is confession time, I admit I who responsible for your husband's unexpected business trips out of town at least once a month for the last three years. I am the cause of him "working late" several times during the week. Every time we were together was sheer pleasure, but I always felt let down when he had to leave. There was always a shadow hanging over our plans. That shadow, my dear, was you.

Last night your husband and I had a long talk. I was filled with mixed emotions. I was disappointed and yet at the same time highly impressed when he announced that he was going to be devoted to you and his family from now on.

I love him, but I must let him go. I am glad he had the courage to finally admit that there could never be any future with us. He loves you. Be proud of him because if I had a choice, I would rather not be "the other woman but the woman he is finally going home to."

The Other Woman

P. S. Don't ever let him go because if you do, I might still be waiting for him.

That's the way some people are!

I don't understand why such a nasty response letter. She wasn't being nasty to the wife. Why is the wife being so condescending.

Hageration and Tricky 63, Wow! Thanks for your comments!

Tricky 63 on October 15, 2011:

Of course its fictional, no woman in her right mind would ever write such dribble. Love making session at 2.00am please!!!!!! If a man was having love making sessions with his wife at 2.00am HE WOULD NOT NEED ANOTHER WOMAN, more than likely she was REJECTING his advance at 8.00pm.What a load of cods wallop.

Letter to the Other Woman,

I'm sorry my husband dumped you. Great, this means now I have to fire another pool boy. Thank you for your letter... My lawyer says with this there will be no problem in getting what I've always wanted from my husband... Everything. Since you decided to tell me a few things I guess I'll tell you a few... First, get mental help. Just because Daddy didn't hug you enough isn't an excuse to be a whore. Second, you just made me a very wealthy single woman. Lastly, I'm sorry that you are replaceable & well just not good enough. It must really effect you that you aren't marriage material & men only see you as being disposable dog toy, yes, dog toy. Why? Because just like the dogs that men are.. dogs play with a toy till they get everything they want & entertainment until the toy is useless, broken, & garbage then they drop the toy move on to the next & completely forget the toy ever existed. I'm sorry for your luck. I gotta vacation to start.. maybe you should start charging men so you can afford a vaca too.. just sayin :)

Holy moly this is SO realistic...!!!! I guess it is that way because I have been on BOTH ends of the case of the other woman. I've been her and I've had her ruin my family. Wow...

Wow! This woman sounds descent and really sorry about what she's done. Well I don't know her but it sounds like she's truly asking for forgiveness.
