My wife had a strange phone call from another man in the night – did she cheat?

DEAR DEIDRE: A phone call my wife received 10 years ago is still etched in my mind.

It was in the early hours of the morning and was from another man clearly asking her to meet him.

We’ve been married for seven years now and my wife is much younger than me – I’m 65 and she’s 48.

She goes out with friends on a Friday night and that’s fine with me. When we met, my dancing days were over.

When this man called her though, in the early hours of that fateful Saturday morning, she said to him, “No! You’ve got the wrong idea about me. Don’t call me again.”

She slammed the phone down and told me it was nobody to worry about.

She always confides in friends and tells me so little. We’ve hit a rough patch lately and I’ve always wondered whether she was unfaithful?

I don’t want any secrets.
