"Dear Pulse,

My name is Benedicta. I have been married for five years and I can proudly say that since I got married, I have never had anything to do with another man.

But that does not stop my husband from distrusting me, partly because of my job and the fact that I am always surrounded by men, most of them clients and work colleagues.

The cause of the current friction in our home at the moment is the fact that one of the best friends I have ever had in this life happens to be a man, Victor.

This guy is single and has gone through a lot in terms of relationship and I always give him a shoulder to cry on. He is like the brother I never had and has been there for me in good and bad times.

He cares so much for me and I can swear that Victor has never made any pass at me aside the normal compliments on my look once in a while. He has even tried to get close to my husband to assure him that there is nothing between us but my husband has not been forthcoming.

Now he has given me an ultimatum to either cut all links with Victor or I will leave his house. As much as I love my husband and will not want anything to happen to my marriage, I care for Victor so much and I know he will be so hurt if I tell him not to ever get in touch with me again.

How do I go about this dilemma?
