A woman recently sought advice through a local daily regarding her dilemma of being in love with her neighbor's husband. Here is her letter:
I am a female aged 26 and I have a 3-year-old child, although I am not married.
I got the child from a married man who duped me that he was single while he was married. I dumped him when I was two months pregnant because I was heartbroken.
It is hard for me to be active on the dating scene as I work till late, hence I have been single for over three years.
I have several neighbors in my apartment block, but there is a particular neighbor whom I have developed an interest in. However, he is married. I interact with him well although I have not told him of my feelings for him.

Now, about a month ago, I found his wife kissing a man outside our gate. I have seen them three or four times now.
Since I know that his wife is cheating and I have feelings for him, should I tell him? Should I spill the beans on his wife's cheating?
The truth is that I want him and I am lonely. Please help!
Readers responded with varied opinions. Some of them chastised her for coveting a married man, while others encouraged her to act on her feelings.
Read some of the reader responses below:
Anne: He is someone else's husband. You want to tell him because you are an interested party not because you want to help him. Find your own single man.
Dennis: Your plans are evil, my dear. Look for your own man!
Liz: No problem—just take over!
Duncan: If you're genuine, try to talk to your fellow lady and advise her not to cheat on her husband. That's the best way to go about it; otherwise, you are sinning in front of God if you're coveting a married man.
What would you advise the lady to do?
