I've lurked around here for the last few days, and before I get started with my story, I just want to thank all of you for your honesty and ability to express your feelings. Reading your posts is what helped me to survive these last couple of days, as I found comfort in knowing that there were others that have been through, or are going through what I am.

My story...

I have been married for 7 years. Meeting him was like a breath of fresh air. He carried no (obvious) emotional baggage,

This whole thing (including wanting to see another man doing his wife) smacks of a sex addiction to me. I think in order to stay with him you need to insist that he get some counseling for sex addiction before you can even think about moving forward with him.

I agree with my board mate - I was thinking the same thing very early on in your long post.

I'm so sorry for what you are going through. My heart goes out to you. I am hugging you right now.

I agree with what other posters have said. I think your husband has a sexual addiction. And unless he gets some help, it will most likely continue. I suggest you strongly urge him to get therapy. I feel that only this will help him.
