hubby problems

Okay so my husband came clean about cheating on me back in november and more and more just keeps coming out. The lies don't stop!! and I can totally tell when someone is lying I've studied it because I'm not a trusting person. Their eyes go back and forth or look up cause mentally their "looking for the lie" and he keeps doing that and you know the famous story change. He told me he got checked and I made him call the place he got checked at and low and behold he was telling the truth about that. thank god they all came back looking okay. I want to work things out with him and do marriage counceling and he said he'd go to sex addict classes and stuff but I'm seriously confused and hurt at what I should do. Any suggestions? (please no rude comments)

  • Just get started in counseling and know that it is going to be a very long road before things settle down, I'd say a good 2 years. Make sure you are both up for some very hard work to get back on track. I don't like his "sex addict class" offer, makes me think he's trying to play victim here, like oh, its not my fault I'm an addict, crap. Don't buy it.

    I'm curious, why did he come clean all of a sudden?

  • I think you should follow your heart, marriage isnt alway's easy it takes alot of work and we are only human so yeah people make mistake's at least he want's to get help and change that is always a plus..... I think giving a second chance is ok but only once, My hubby cheated on me while i was pregnant 7 yrs ago even though we were only teenager's im glad i gave him a second chance because he has never done it and now we have three amazing kid's, and no our marriage hasnt been perfect since then we still have our fights and we still disagree but i love him more and more everyday....I hope all turns out for you and Good luck!

  • Marriage counseling for sure. I'd have trouble trusting him, too. Perhaps do all that you can do, despite the feelings of mistrust, to give him a happy home life. This may make him be more unwilling to lose it.

  • First and foremost...If you decide to go to a marriage councelor, find one that understands the issues that the two of you are going through. Never go to a marriage councelor because of their open and honest about your feelings regardless if what you say may hurt your spouse...Secondly, take each day, step by step...if your husband wants to change, then there's nothing wrong in giving your marraige another try...
