A woman, who slapped her husband with a lifetime sex ban, reveals how she lifted it after a tipsy night out.
Haley Mulholland, 48, refused to sleep with husband Kevin, 49, for three years after discovering his cheating habits.
Kevin, of Bristol, who has been back in the marital bed for a few months, laughed: “Well, the heating was off and we had to do something to keep warm.”
Haley confronted her husband about cheating, who denied it, before taking him on to the Jeremy Kyle Show, where, in front of a studio audience, a lie detector test confirmed her worst fears – that he had cheated.
She let him remain in their home, but kicked him out of their bed, insisting he stayed celibate and even tracking his movements.
Admitting two years into the sex ban, that while she did not want him, she did not want anyone else to have him either, Haley said: “I keep tabs on his phone and on his Facebook.
“He swears he’s staying true, but I can’t trust him as far as I can throw him. Over the past few months, I’ve become quite the detective.”
Now, a year later, after “much creeping” from Kevin, she is enjoying nights of passion with her husband again.
Haley said: “It turns out leopards can change their spots. He has earned my trust back.”
But, winning “stunning” Haley back was not easy, according to Kevin.
“She, rightly, kept me on a ban,” he explained. “But that night, when she was cuddly, well I was over-the-moon. I had my soulmate back.”
Adamant he is no serial philanderer, insisting that his cheating was a one-off, Kevin, who has six children with Haley and two stepchildren, said it was still one betrayal too many for his strong-willed wife.
“Once a cheat always a cheat, was her attitude,” said Kevin, who met Haley when he was a travelling showman, but is now medically retired and walks with the aid of sticks.
“After she found out what I’d done, I had to walk on eggshells around her. I had to be nice and creeping.
“I complimented her, was kind and proved to her – through my words and actions – that I would never cheat again.”
Realising that further infidelity could lead to him losing his wife and family, made staying celibate easy for Kevin, who blames “peer pressure” for his actions.
Speaking frankly, he continued: “When I cheated, well, I was an idiot. I would rather put a bullet in my head than do that again. I regret it a thousand per cent.”
He continued: “Some blokes don’t regret cheating, but I did, when I realised what I could lose. Haley is a stunner, she is beautiful, intelligent and sexy. What was I thinking?”
Confessing that he fell in love the moment he met Haley in 1999, at the time, Kevin was living in a Salvation Army hostel.
“It was a hard life,” he reflected. “So, I arrived in Bristol and met a friend.”
When he gave his pal a lift to a house in the city, he met Haley, who was lodging there.
“She answered the door and I couldn’t believe my eyes,” he said, “A few days later, we went on a date and I asked if she could do my washing.
“The next thing, I’d moved myself in and she’d done my washing for me”.
Kevin then set about wooing her – proposing six months later, although she turned him down. “I thought she was great,” he said. “But she wasn’t so keen.”
Eventually, though, he won her heart and they married in 2000, going on to renew their vows in 2012.
“Fate brought us together,” he smiled. “She is so good looking and has a lovely personality. (Mailonline)
