DEAR DEIDRE: MY lover’s wife took £80,000 out of the joint account and put it into her own. He’s told me he won’t leave her till he gets his money back.
I’ve been involved with him for nearly three years. I know it’s wrong, but we fell for each other.
He’s 47 and I’m a single 57-year-old woman. We work together in HR for a big company.
He’s asked me to wait for him but it may take years and now she holds this money, I’m wondering if he’ll ever be free of her.
I’m trying to be patient but I really want to get on with our lives together. I’m so frustrated.
Is there any way I can help him get his money back or do I need to cut my losses and call our affair off?

My team and I are working safely from home but we are here to help you as always.
DEIDRE SAYS: How many more years are you prepared to wait? He’s having his cake and eating it by seeing you for sex and then trotting back home to his wife.
Are you sure the money story is true or is this another way of him keeping your relationship just as it is? If he was certain his marriage was over, he’d have left a long ago.
Give him an ultimatum for things to change within two months. If nothing happens, protect yourself from further hurt by telling him it’s over, and find the love you deserve.
