His other half, Marta Salinas, 56, discovered he had a mistress when she encountered another female holding a vigil for him. The other woman, Susana Valenzuela, said they satisfied on a training course 5 years ago and he was planning to leave his other half for her.
” He is my spouse. He loves me and I am his dedicated spouse,” firmly insisted Mrs Salinas. “This other woman has no legitimacy.”
