- A woman started an affair with a former flame four months after she got married
- Her ex said he had ‘made a mistake’ in ending their relationship
- While the sex was good, the woman felt deep guilt for being unfaithful
- A call from her brother prompted her to end the affair and stay with her husband
A woman who started an affair with a former fling just four months after she got married has revealed why she ultimately chose to remain with her husband.
After a string of failed relationships, the anonymous Australian woman married the ‘perfect’ man who was completely devoted to her.
But months after their wedding, she received a message from a former flame who she saw as her ‘soulmate’, saying breaking up with her had been a mistake and asking her to meet.
The woman told 9Honey how they secretly slept together during lunch breaks, before a chance phone call from her brother prompted her to end the affair and stay with her husband.

After breaking up with her partner of 10 years, the woman was left ‘devastated’ and tumbled into a whirlwind romance with her brother’s best friend who she had known since childhood.
She felt the man was her ‘soulmate’, but their fling lasted just three weeks before he broke it off over fears her brother would not approve.
One year later, she met her future husband, a ‘gorgeous, devoted guy’ who would do anything to please her – but someone she wasn’t truly in love with.
Despite this, she accepted his proposal and felt ‘relieved’ to have found a man who was willing to commit.
But four months after their wedding, her ex contacted her to say he had made a mistake in ending their relationship.
She agreed to meet, ‘knowing it wasn’t the right thing to do’.
After reconnecting, her feelings ‘really grew for him again’ and they started sleeping together at during the day when she was supposed to be at work.
But while the sex was good, the woman felt deep guilt for her infidelity.
‘It wasn’t exactly an enjoyable affair, although the sex was good, because I felt so guilty throughout it all,’ she said.
‘It felt like I was addicted to Andrew…it was like a drug.’
The turning point came when her brother called while she was in bed with her lover, prompting her to question her decision and end the affair.
‘I felt relieved when I ended things, and now I realise I only had the affair because I felt I had “unfinished business” with him,’ she said.
Despite cheating, she is still happily married to her husband who remains none the wiser.
A recent report from Sexual Health Australia revealed affairs are common, with statistics showing 60 percent of men and 45 percent of women have strayed outside their primary relationships.
Of those who have cheated, some said they felt ignored or suffocated by their partners, while others realised they preferred multiple lovers.
