Woman married 'Mr. Perfect' for 13 years frustrated husband wouldn't cheat

While most single women are searching for Mr Perfect, perhaps with a little imperfection, a married woman has revealed she is frustrated with being married to a ‘‘perfect’’ man.

In a startlingly honest piece, writer Claire O’Reilly, 40, from Plymouth, married Jon, 46, 13 years ago revealed why she is frustrated with being married to Mr Perfect.

"I should have got an inkling of my husband’s perfect moral fibre when we were dating back in 2002. I called in sick to work, planning to surprise him as he worked from home.

However, when I turned up with thoughts of a long, lazy, romantic lunch, he refused to ditch his responsibilities even though we were supposed to be in the first throes of love,’’ Claire revealed.

Claire stressed that she is frustrated about being married to ‘‘Mr Perfect’’ and his ridiculous moral compass has come to be a bone of contention for them.

‘‘Simply put, I’m bored of being married to a paragon of virtue,’’ Claire lamented.

The writer emphasized that her husband is ‘‘so unlike me it’s disarming but it turns out I’m not alone.’’

Claire revealed that after a small prang in the car a few years ago, their insurance company informed them that they were entitled to sue the other driver for injuries amounting to around GHc 41,000 (£6,000).

As neither of them was injured, Jon refused to take on the elderly driver despite the figures at play because it would be “dishonest”.

‘‘Don’t get me wrong, I love him and this year we celebrated 17 years together — 13 of them married, but I wish he’d lie, cheat, defame or slander just once, so that I could feel better about my own less-than-perfect character,’’ Claire said.

‘‘While Jon is quiet and unassuming I’m the extrovert. He is definitely made up of all the traits I’m missing entirely. His moral compass will follow him into the grave, but no one will eulogise about my fair nature or loyal friendship,’’ she added.

Claire says it is not just his general decency that’s hard to stomach but because he is a better spouse than her.
