It is a real life situation, though I am a registered nurse my mental health issues are limited as I am acute medicine trained. I have tried to explain to kay that John prob'ably didn't realise that it was going to upset her, him staying overnight with his brother and his fiancee (Johns ex). He lookd at it that it was saving himself £25 in taxi's as his brother was taking him home in the car. But Kay seems to be looking deeper into the issue, looking a little deeper into the psychology of the situation may help me to ease her a little more. Thankyou
John (age 58) and Mark (age 49) are brothers. 2 year ago lived 4 mile apart but sometimes went drinking in the City rather than local. John met Ruth (age about 45), dated her for several months, meeting her family and Mother. Then like every year the lads went to Benidorm, Spain, to the festival in Nov 2010. John met Kay (age 54) there, but already knew her from his local town. On return from Spain they got together, John ending it with Ruth. 3 to 4 weeks later Mark got together with Ruth. John moved in with Kay year ago, XXXXX XXXXXves with Ruth inthe City but still owns his own house locally. Both couples are getting married next year. Kay feels it was morally wrong to stay at his ex's home with his brother, a home that he frequented when he was with Ruth, and the intimacy that they once shared. Both couples love each other dearly and feel that the partner they have is the only one for them. John is madly in love with Kay, but she feels that he could have got that taxi home, he could have afforded it. Kay just cannot understand why a woman should fall for his brother Mark when there are literally so many fish in the sea.
