The Doe is a media and tech company creating paths to improved civil discourse. I married young and, by the time I reached my 30th birthday, I had four young children, the home of my dreams, financial security and a husband who—if less than perfect—was a good person and provider. We had fun together and a busy social life, even if we never set the world alight between the sheets.
His wife Laura had become a good friend through numerous playdates we had organized for our daughters; the girls had become inseparable since meeting on their first day of school. Over the next few years, Laura and I became the best of friends. Her husband Joe, however, remained something of an enigma to me.
Men had always been drawn to me as I had to thembut every time I was in his company he appeared to fix me with an icy glare that always set me on edge. I was flummoxed. And intrigued.
He became something of a challenge to me and, while having an affair never really crossed my mind, I was determined to win him over. I began to find all sorts of fictional excuses to call to their home and, gradually, he seemed to warm to me. One night Laura invited me to dinner with herself and Joe.
My husband was traveling for work, something that was becoming more and more common. I happily obliged. Later that evening, I finally found myself alone with Joe, Laura having had too much to drink had excused herself and wandered up the stairs to bed. In one life-changing moment, the atmosphere became electric and within seconds we found ourselves wrapped around each other in the most passionate kiss I had ever experienced.
When I eventually left to return home, he came with me to spend the night.
That was the beginning of the end. Our year-long affair began that night, and as it progressed, my interest in my marriage regressed. I was completely committed to my new love who had captivated both my mind and my body.
I suffered from occasional pangs of guilt, but, in general, I was a master at compartmentalizing. My relationship with Laura continued, grew even and, through it all, I blossomed. Joe, however, was not doing as well. He was a faithful man by nature and our situation distressed him greatly.
He struggled with the deceit and the guilt and tried on numerous occasions to end it. He always came back.
Throughout this time, Ireland was on the verge of economic collapse and my husband was spending more and more time traveling in an effort to save his failing business. He had become somewhat manic due to the financial stress, behaving more and more erratically. I used the opportunity to indulge myself even more in my new favorite hobby, thinking little of the consequences that might result.
I was drunk on love and, as far as I was concerned, that trumped everything else.
A true story of lies, betrayal, and desperation.
One year and one month after our affair began, everything came crashing down when the guilt became too much for Joe to bear: He confessed to Laura about his indiscretion. My husband had also started to suspect something and when Laura confided to him what was going on in her marriage, everything clicked into place. And so, the nightmare began. Joe left his family home and stayed at a hotel while I navigated my way through the hellscape I had created.
At home, in a fit of rage, my husband decided it appropriate to tell our children every sordid detail.
We are the doe
They ranged in age from six to 12 at the time, and knew Joe and Laura as our friends and the parents of their own friends. It ended with her spitting in my face as the children looked on silently. Their confusion and upset was heartbreaking for me to witness but the biggest challenge to their innocent childhood came when their father finally lost control and punched me in front of them.
Nothing excused his lashing out at me but I knew deep down that the man I had married would never have considered such an act. The stress of the economic meltdown had put him under such intense pressure that when he found out about my betrayal, it was more than his mind could handle.
In many ways, I was relieved. I could finally stop living a lie. He left a few days after that, returning to the Middle East where he had been trying to cultivate some work. We never saw him again. He abandoned his business, his life and his children.

Suddenly life became all too real. I found myself without money, security and abandoned by many that I had considered friends. I lost everything. I was the fallen woman in our neighborhood and the gossips delighted in it.
