Fun Home-Mystery Man

As I was reflecting on the books we read this semester, I remembered an instance in Bechdel's work Fun Home. Bechdel remembers a time when her mother took her to some man's house but does not elaborate on this occurrence. What exactly happened? I thought there was something about the event that allowed the reader to infer that Helen may have had an affair or some other relationship that we are unaware of. However, it is really unclear as to what this episode implied or any underlying themes Bechdel refers to. I was wondering if anyone else had any thought pertaining to this specific visit.
