I’ve just been reading a problem page in which a 42-year-old working woman (the same age as me) is causing a great deal of concern to her nearest-and dearest-for these reasons:
1. She has started hanging out in bars, and – gasp! – possibly having sexual relations with men that she meets there.
2. She bought a new car – with her own money – without consulting anybody else first.
3. She sometimes disappears on weekend trips alone, doing goodness knows what.
So, you might ask, what’s the problem? Surely she can do what she likes – after all, it’s her life, and her money.
The problem is, she’s married.
