I don't believe that 'formerly wayward boyfriends/girlfriends' should even exist.
I barely believe in 'formerly wayward spouses' and that's solely because the betrayed has enough skin in the game that it may be worth one more roll of the dice.
Notice that I say 'may be worth' with formerly wayward spouses.
It so far appears that I am one of the fortunate ones whose spouse cheated once and never again. I found out the reality of the situation years after the fact and it appears that there were no repeats.
Ergo I am, to date, still here.
Had there been a single repeat in the interim, I'd be long gone, even if the further infidelities happened in the interim between the initial infidelity, and when I found out years later.
If there's a repeat now or in the future, I'll be gone like yesterday.
I can deal with a one off and the realization on the part of the wayward that this is not the person the wayward wants to be, especially if there are children in the mix and jointly owned infrastructure and assets on the line.
Once is bad judgment.
Once is 'a mistake.'
Once is 'gotta touch that hot burner for myself to find out why I shouldn't touch that hot burner.'
Once is 'trying this on for size.'
Twice is 'I liked it and went back for more.'
Twice is behavior.
Twice is 'who I am.'
That does not portend well, IMHO.
Sounds like you don't feel that you have 'concrete enough' proof that your 'formerly wayward boyfriend' is cheating to prod you into action.
I can tell you this:
I would have absolutely *no* tolerance for repeated 'motorcycle rides,' even if that's all it was, as if.
I grew up with guys that ride.
Ask any guy that rides if there is a sexual element to 'giving a woman a ride' on his bike.
From the opposite side of the equation,
I wouldn't, as a married woman, do that, and my riding friends wouldn't offer, and my husband wouldn't tolerate it.
Your 'formerly wayward boyfriend' can, IMHO, bugger off, and the sooner the better, before any further damage occurs.
As far as your employment situation, I empathize and I sympathize.
You've been in this place of employment for 24 years.
Your current situation sounds downright toxic.
Has management changed in your 24 year tenure? Sure sounds like it.
It sounds like a bully culture.
IMHO, you are being bullied at work, and management is allowing it, if not condoning it.
I am no expert and obviously I'm not living your life- but based on my experience, neither your romantic situation as it is nor your work situation as it is will get better, much less get better on its own.
It surely won't get better if you just continue to sit in it.
We stay in difficult situations when our best efforts and our persistence and our patience can, will, and do affect a positive change.
In those situations, we can get some traction and we can turn the situation around.
I don't see any indication of that traction, nor the possibility of that traction, in either the romantic situation nor in the work situation you describe.
Do not be the tethered bird who depends on the rotting and failing branch.
Be the bird who is free and competent and independent.
Have faith and confidence in your own wings, not in a shaky and rotting branch.
You have X number of days of your wild and precious life.
You wanna waste those days on losers?
