Dear Advice column,


Hi, my name is Daisy. You may know my husband, Tom Buchanan. I live in a great big house and have a fabulous life that I am so grateful for. I have everything

i

could ever need and more. I love my daughter and

i

am madly in love with my husband. But life as me isn’t all that is it cracked up to be. You see, Tom is not all that faithful.



When the telephone rings,

i

am not allowed to answer it. The butler tells Tom the it is the “Garage” calling about his infinite”cars” but

i

know it is another woman. He doesn’t look at me quite the

same,

as if

i

am not meeting his mistress’ standards that

i

have no idea about. This woman calls throughout the day, even during dinner! I find it so rude and

i

am so hurt by it. Should I confront Tom about his deceitful ways or should

i

remain quiet

so

i

may live this grand life?




Dear, Daisy


This is awful news to hear. Especially from someone as seemingly lovely as you. Your life is very much envied by many people. Anyone who saw you two would never think such a “travesty” was occurring. The house, the man, the hierarchy in your social status being so grandiose, much of this could be ruined by bringing up husbands’ mistress.


Daisy, I know that you had the intentions of marrying Tom all for yourself, but in the grand scheme of things, is sharing so bad? You could lose everything Tom has built for you and your daughter's life. If he doesn’t know that you know, he won’t be upset, and won’t want to leave you. He loves you because he has not left you completely. I would not confront Tom. I don’t see that sharing is such a bad thing.
