Many people tend to believe that turning a blind eye is the best way to approach cheating. It’s a stage. He will get over it. She’s just bored. He’s having a mid-life crisis. But beyond finances, beyond the relationship you thought you had, and beyond your struggle with your ego and having to tell people your marriage isn’t perfect…… is your health. By far, one of the saddest infidelity cases we have worked was one where the husband travelled frequently. My client suspected that her husband had been having little trysts on these frequent trips, but she ignored her intuition while she raised their children for 25 years. She told herself that once the children were grown, she would take action. In the meantime, she was getting sicker and sicker and her doctors could not figure out what was wrong with her. Many months of tests and hospitalizations concluded that she had end stage syphilis. Rarely seen in the United States in the 21st century, but still rampant in other parts of the world, syphilis had destroyed my client’s reproductive organs and her central nervous system. My client’s intentions were good. She wanted to keep the family together until the children were grown. But the price was too high. Her suspicions were confirmed in the worst possible way. When she hired us to put the last nail in the coffin – a current affair with a woman just two blocks away living in a home my client’s husband purchased for her, our client took action. She ensured her financial future, her adult children’s inheritance, and was awarded one of the largest, most comprehensive marital settlement agreements we’ve ever seen. Don’t turn a blind eye. Take action and protect your future.
