Where do I go next after finding that my husband has had an affair???

I just don't know what to do next. Has anyone been through this confusion too? I love him and we have a wonderful family, but I don't want to tolerate infidelity. I need answers!

  • Next step would be DIVORCE!!
    I'd leave his butt. I don't tolerate that, never have, never will.
    My husband's ex-wife cheated, as did my ex. We both ended in divorce. We tried to make things work, but you can never get over it. It will always lead to fights and never have any more trust. Ever.

  • Only you can answer if it's worth trying to salvege the relationship. Cheating doesn't have to mean the end, sometimes it really is just a stupid mistake. But if it's more than just a stupid mistake, or if you feel like you can never forgive him, then it's time to move on.

  • where to you go? I say to the lawyers office, to counseling alone to help you deal with it all, then out the door. not nessicarily in that order.
    Don't kid yourself dear. not proud of it, I've been a mistress a few times when I was younger. Don't kid yourself into thinking that he wasn't really into her, or that when he was with her he was thinking of how much he loved you.
    that was part of the appeal, no one could pay you attention like a married man-
    I've got lots of guy pals too, and I heard it many times, just how great the mistress was, going on how she'd do things the wife wouldn't, and on and on.

    hate to be brutal, but a man that cheats is a man that cheats.
    who wants to keep a man around that doesn't appreciate you for the great woman you are? who wants to live with a man wondeing if he'll do it again?
    and often they do! they just get much more careful to not be caught again!
    get counseling to help choose GL!

  • You go to him and talk about it. If you are sure that can't go thru that then divorce him and be happy.

  • Well, if you feel that he is remorseful enough to rebuild trust and work on your relationship (yes, he HAS to do this, not just you), then it's up to you if you can salvage the marriage. If you don't feel that it is working if you try it, then there is no marriage. Sorry you're going through this.

  • you confront your cheating husband - and NOW - ask him about what you have heard - believe me, a woman can tell when her husband is lying - is he is, then you will have to decide if the both of you want to keep this marriage together - in which case, you will need marriage counseling and you will need to learn how to forgive him - you will both have to work on it - for a long, long time - if he prefers the other woman, the marriage might be over - but, i feel, once a cheater, always a cheater - i'm sorry for you - you have my deepest empathy...
