Re: I Never Thought It Would Happen To Me. Has It Happened To You or someone close to you?

 There are so few resources for women in this situation. It is such a hard decision to stay and work on a marriage or to leave and start over. I am amazed there is not  more support for women in this position. Unfortunately, my husband also cheated on me. I also had to put on a brave face. I was starting a new job the day after I found out. I’m still amazed I held it together. He dropped the affair and gave up alcohol the day I found out. He said it was something he fell into infrequently when i was focused on our kids. He didn’t want to “bother” me. This explanation was baffling. We had regular sex. I thought we were one of the happiest couples I knew. I never expected an affair. I haven’t left, but I haven’t gotten over it yet. We go to weekly counseling and he has given up drinking. He is so focused on the family. He is really trying, but I am still afraid. I would love to hear other perspectives.

I Never Thought It Would Happen To Me. Has It Happened To You or someone close to you?

This has become more common and people either experience it or know someone who has.  Do you have sage advice to share?  What worked or didn't work for you?  What advice would you give someone in this position?
