I Divorced my Husband and Married the Au Pair
The Guardian ^ | Viv Groskop

Posted on 06/30/2014 11:40:39 AM PDT by nickcarraway

When Michele Macfarlane started to lose her eyesight, she got an au pair to help with the children. But she fell in love with the younger woman and realised she was gay

It's a well-worn cliche to fear the arrival of an attractive au pair. The threat, it is assumed, is always that the husband will stray. "There is so much written about this," Michele Macfarlane says, laughing. "I remember that early on I said to my mother, 'You know, I think our new au pair is gay.'

Tell us what you think: Star-rate and review this book "My mum joked, 'Well, if she is gay, that's a good thing. At least you won't have the problem of your husband running off with the au pair.'"

In the end, as the title of Macfarlane's account puts it bluntly, her story has a different ending: I Left My Husband for the Au Pair. When the au pair, Marizette arrives, Macfarlane emails a friend: "She's done a lot of competitive sport so she's nicely built – tall with broad shoulders, a flat tummy and strong arms." Massive alarm bells.

Although she was born in South Africa, Macfarlane, 46, is British, having spent half of her life here. She and her former husband, Peter, who is a chiropractor, met as drama students in Coventry. They started a family in their early 20s. By 24, Macfarlane was a full-time mother. In her early 30s, the whole family moved to Cape Town.

How special. The husband should consider this a blessing in disguise. And I hope he’s protected his assets.

Don’t hire an au pair if you want to keep your marriage?

Well, it’s an indication of what the left is doing. How come straight people can, “become gay,” at any point in their life, but even thinking a gay person could, “become straight,” is illegal?

Apparently nothing wrong with breaking a husband’s heart and wrecking your children’s lives if you are gay.

Apparently so.

"Honey! I just realized that I'm gay! And I'm moving out tomorrow! Tee Hee! (Twirls hair around finger)". Or, at least that's how this excerpt reads.

But, she's gay, and female, (and cute? I didn't read the article) so she's excused. Men who drop their wives for their secretaries, though, are inexcusable bastards who likely should be executed on sight.

Michele Macfarlane: ‘You can be gay and not realise it at all.’

Correction-- mentally disordered.

I’d bet the farm that she has had homosexual experience(s) before.

What a double standard.

A man that leaves is a scum bag.

A woman that leaves is celebrated.

Attention MSM:

Evil is not good.
