TPR announced that he needed some ‘space’ so he moved out of our marital home and into a shared flat in Bruntsfield with a bunch of undergrads and some young professionals (one of whom had just been offered a lectureship in Psychology at the University of Cambridge).
One year later, after a cycling holiday together, I begged TPR to come back home.
However, I made a nasty discovery. I withdrew my offer when he confessed that he had been sleeping with a 21 year-old student called Isabel Peters (and not Sonya as I feared). I was heartbroken – and also worried about STDs.
