A Simple Thanks

I am a thirty-four-year-old man. I have been married for sixteen years. I have a wonderful wife and three kids. We have the "perfect family", or so I thought until I met Alice. We started talking as friends on the days my wife worked all day and most of the night. I told my wife, and we had some hard times. All the while, I kept telling my wife that they were so much alike. I saw Alice on cam one day and noticed that I kept thinking about how much she did remind me of my wife. I went to meet Alice one day with very little notice to her. I wanted to know the answers to certain questions that were in my heart. She was a strong woman and let me go. On the drive back to my house, I was so hurt. But, I realized that the person I fell in love with was a mirror image of the person that I was trying to let go. So, in reality, I loved my wife even more now. I just want to thank Alice for seeing this and for letting me go. Thank you.
