My husband was out of town over the weekend so I decided to plan a girls' night out. The moms got sitters and we hit a few of the new trendy hot spots. Dinner was a blast and as the drinks flowed, we all knew we were in for a fun night!
When we got to the club (our final destination), we were almost instantly bombarded by men trying to pick us up. Since we're all married, nothing was going to come out of their advances, but the attention felt great. As the night wore on, I noticed that one of the girls had taken a liking to one of the guys. They were attached at the hip all night; drinking, dancing, and talking. When it was time to go, we couldn't find her anyway — they had disappeared.
None of us heard from her that night, but my phone rang early the next morning — it was her. In a trembling voice, she told me that she had made a horrible mistake and cheated on her husband with the guy from the club. As someone that has no tolerance for cheating, I was disappointed and disgusted with her confession, and I let her know it. I understand that she confided in me as a friend, but I don't think I can ever forgive her for being unfaithful; it makes me see her in an entirely new light. I know people make mistakes, and I know this is her life not mine, but can I be forgiven for feeling this way?
