But as she was gone for a few months, the two of us continued hanging out and he confided in me about their marital problems. We have a lot in common (more than I do with her) and having strikingly similar personalities. Neither of us even realized how deep we were until it was too late. We haven't had sex. But we have been physical and it's been exactly three weeks since that happened.
Since that, he has told his wife that he wants a divorce and has moved out. Today he is meeting with someone to begin the paperwork. She and I had a falling out three weeks ago and no longer speak. She suspects something but knows very little.
He has never asked me to lie. He has seen the pain I have gone through because of this and has told me he would confess it to his wife and take all of the blame if that's what I think will help me. She suspects something but does not know the extent. We have both confessed this before God and are seeking professional counseling.
I called him yesterday and told him I needed space and time. He said he would honor that if that's what I think I need. He said he is still going to be thinking about me, praying for me and that it doesn't change how he feels about me. And that his decision to leave her still stands.
He has told me he doesn't see me as a fling or as his mistress. He says he cares about me and wants to be there for me no matter what and if nothing else, my friend.
