  • I think the best thing for both of you to do is Think about how All of this is effecting your 3 Children!

  • Honey, you should have left him a long time ago. Then, two wrongs don't make a right. How is me telling you to leave going to affect your decision considering you haven't left even after you know he has been with her numerous times?

    Answer by BradenIsMySon at 2:37 PM on Oct. 18, 2010

  • Ok, I am going to try to say this as nicely as possible. The best indicator of future behavior is past behavior. So what does his past behavior tell you? It tells me that he will continue with this habit of talking to the other girl. It also tells me that you may be prone to looking outside of the relationship when you feel hurt. Even in a good marriage both people will feel hurt at times but that doesn't mean you can just run to someone else. What you did was wrong, and what he has been doing was wrong. You could give it one more shot and maybe things would be different this time, but there is also a good chance that history will repeat itself. You have to decide what you are willing to accept and go from there.

  • its never easy..i have a daughter and i realize that now my decisions affect her and not just me. I do agree if you simply arent happy its not good for the both of you but unfortunately if he is also looking elsewhere..talking to his ex he is obviously not happy either & he will continue to lie to you over and over. I am in a similar situation but I never cheated..everyone makes mistakes but you need to decide whats right for you and your kids....not what happend in the past plain and simple, life is too short

  • Just leave if you are not happy then your kids wont be happy either move on and let him move on too maybe this would be good for the both of ya and the kids

    good luck

  • dont u ever think about the children

    Answer by diana398 at 3:06 PM on Oct. 18, 2010

  • If I was in your shoes I would think about the example I am setting for my children. If you have girls they are learning that it is ok for a man to treat his wife like dirt and they watch you stay instead of standing up for what you deserve. If you have boys they are learning from their father that it is ok to treat a woman in this way. It is time to insist upon more for the sake of your children. It sucks and it will be hard but you and they deserve better- whether you get out of this relationship or demand more from it. The same goes for the future- it really defeats the purpose if you dump this guy and end up with someone just like him in six months. You have to be strong and demand more out of your relationship and if the person you're with can't give that to you then you have to move on. Good luck!
