I am a married mother (of three little ones) living in Australia. On 9 November 2013, I discovered my husband of 22 years had been having an affair with a married mother of two. What an asshole. The discovery shattered me.
My lying, cheating husband and I are still together in the hope that we can work through this. I have good days (when I am hopeful we can make it) and bad days (where I decide it’s all over). I fluctuate violently between the two.
One thing I have learned: like having children, nobody, and I mean NOBODY, can understand what it’s like to have your spouse cheat on you until you’ve been in that position yourself.
It devastates your sense of trust and makes you doubt anything and everything. It’s paralysing. I hate it.
One day at a time.
