What would you do?

My husband had an affair last year. I didnt find out until a few months ago, and since then its been a rollercoaster of emotions. Some days I find myself trying extra hard for his attention to make sure he wont do it again, but at the same time I have lost almost 60 pounds not even trying, I lash out in fits of rage at times, find myself more irritable than usual. Its so hot and cold with my emotions lately and I dont know what to do anymore. I thought I could make things work, but I have grown so cold. I found out so much about this affair that it just haunts my mind everyday. He took her on trips out of town, spent quality time with her all the while ignoring me and his children. I am so lost and dont know what to do anymore. I have grown so cold that whatever he does its not enough for my standards. I dont know if I should stay or go anymore.

  • Counseling. For yourself, but mostly as a couple. You gotta talk about how you feel, what you fear, if you can trust him again, etc. Start there to figure out if your marriage is save-able.

  • That is a toughy...I would not want to be with him anymore once you get hurt me that is it but then again it depends how bad he feels on what he did. I would demand the same treatment if he was able to splurge with her he better make it up with me somehow. Now if you are able to take care of yourself and the kids go for it. GL

  • Counseling is the way to go. It sounds like you're not over it or even trust him. I would have him move out while you get your emotions n order and figure out what you want in this relationship. Just seeing him is probably not helping.
