I am neither separated or divorced yet, but we are living separately in our home. I have been married for 17 years and recently my husband found out about my 18 month affair. My dh and I had been having problems for a couple of years prior. He wants to stay together. We have 3 children.
I am not sure about staying together. I love this other man. My dh has provided a good life for me and my children. He points out to me often that this other man can't provide for me in the same way. I know my life would not be as easy, but is that a reason to hold on to a marriage that I have felt emotionally disconnected from for years? I just don't know if I can ever love him again even though he is a good man.
I am torn. I love this other man so much that I can't imagine trying to forget him. I don't know what to do. I know my children's lives will be better if we stay together. I just need some guidance. Is it worth the turmoil to end a long marriage to start over? I know I was wrong to have an affair. I make no excuses for myself. I am just trying to move forward and decide what path I need to take.
