Kitchen appliances

My husband bought kitchen appliances for another woman – is he cheating?

DEAR DEIDRE: WHEN I saw my husband had secretly bought new kitchen equipment from Amazon, I was excited.

My birthday was coming up, and I thought he was healing me for once. He was never the generous or romantic type. We have been married for 20 years. I’m 48 and he’s 50.


My husband bought kitchen appliances for another woman – is he cheating?

But the new microwaves, toasters and food processors never materialized.

All I got was a card and a bouquet of garage flowers.

Confused, I went back to his account and took a closer look.

I discovered that the merchandise was for another woman and had been sent to her address.

I recognized his name – he’s someone my husband works with.

I don’t know if he’s having an affair or trying to help her. Anyway, it’s wrong to do it behind my back. What can I do?

DEIDRE SAYS: It is very difficult to know if your husband is actively cheating on this woman, or if there is perhaps a more innocent explanation.

Either way, he’s hiding secrets from you, and he shouldn’t be hiding things in your marriage.

You need to talk to her about what you found out, tell her you’re worried about your relationship, and ask her if there are things you can work on together.
