I just found out that my wife lied about being raped when she was a teenager (15). She did it to get back at the guy because he broke up with her. She never once told me about this incident. I found out while I was cleaning our attic and found her old journals and read them. This guy actually spent two years in juvenile hall.
I was ready to go tear her up and yell to release some of my anger…how could she do that? Would she ever falsely accuse me of rape? Then I saw her sitting by our fireplace, nursing our 7 month old son. She was just beaming with joy and smiles. Instead, I went over and curled up next to her, hugged her and rubbed our baby’s still bald head! It felt so good, all of us sitting there as a family, loving each other.
Should I be angry at her? Should I even confront her about what I found out about her past? She has been nothing but an angel to me and our son. Maybe my fear of her lying about me is totally unrealistic. But it still shocked me.
