My younger sister spoke about our older sister after finding out about her husband's affair, classifying her as "the cuckolded wife."

I thought this was strange, because in my mind the word cuckold seemed gender specific -- something a wife did to a husband, not the reverse. Then I found reference to a cuckolded wife in the latest book I was reading. How odd ...

Suddenly, it occurred to me that I was the epitome of the cuckolded wife, and had been for over a decade. Talk about your aha moment!

Is it possible to come to terms with such an intimate betrayal? I harbored a huge anger for years, but it has almost completely dissipated in the last year or two. So maybe, just maybe, it is.
