Neither my husband nor him
It's been three years when I met this guy, and we married each other after a courtship of four months. Things were good until after a month of my marriage, I found him cheating on me.
I left him and moved back to my parent's home. Many things happened, he was my first love so it was difficult to accept this shit which happened with me. Filing for divorce was a pain as during this time I lost my father and I was looking for jobs. Societal pressure and other things made me weak. However, I picked up things fast. Gathered courage to move on.
One of my colleague fell for me even after knowing the truth that I am separated not divorced. His love was beyond boundaries, but I could not cheat as I was technically still married. I could not reciprocate, he wanted to marry me but I was not in love with him. To stop all this I told him I am interested in other guy with whom I am working on the current project.
I did not want to spoil a young man's future so I had to lie to him this.
