My part­ner has a past life she’s never told me about

I was on Cloud 9 when I met my then-girl­friend, who’s now my wife of sev­eral months. She’s witty, charm­ing, at­trac­tive, funny, lov­ing and af­fec­tion­ate.

We had a dream life. Un­til her ex-best friend came into the pic­ture.

This woman claims that my wife had un­paid debts which she insists that I set­tle, though stem­ming from long be­fore we’d met.

My wife’s un­aware that her ex-friend ap­proached me to set­tle her debts. I re­fused, and told the woman that I wasn’t in­ter­ested.

Then this “friend” dropped a bomb­shell on me, as­sert­ing that my wife had worked as an ex­otic dancer at adult estab­lish­ments which later pro­gressed to her of­fer­ing in­ti­mate com­pan­ion­ship ser­vices as an es­cort.

I didn’t want to be­lieve her but af­ter con­duct­ing some ex­ten­sive sleuthing I learned that it’s all true.

Her ex-friend shared with me a sex tape that shows my wife en­gag­ing in in­ti­macy with at least 10 men dur­ing one of her paid en­coun­ters.

I’m very an­gry and trou­bled by these up­set­ting reve­la­tions.

I’m se­ri­ously con­sid­er­ing speak­ing to a lawyer and even con­tem­plat­ing di­vorce. Please ad­vise.

Duped and De­ceived

Two ma­jor red flags in this story: 1) The in­for­mant is no ex-“friend,” but rather a nasty, jeal­ous, con­niv­ing person who tried to shake you down for money for her.

If she per­sists, have a lawyer deal with her claims.

2) You adored your wife and loved your life with her, yet you rush to con­sider di­vorce be­fore even talk­ing to her about her past.
