  • This is my philosophy. When it comes to relationships, you can't think about the kids, because if you do, then you're not taking your own feelings into consideration. Wouldn't you rather have 2 happy homes, than 1 unhappy home? I know I would, tough as it is not being w/ ur hubby. But what's meant to be will find it's way. Don't act upset or any different around your son, than you would any other normal day.

    best of wishes.

  • Kids are resilient. Give him some credit. If it's what needs to happen , it will and he will be fine. Just be sensetive to his feelings.

  • Kids are resilient and I'm sorry but agree with both moms. You need to do whats best for you and make a bad situation into a happy one for your child. He will be better off than hearing you guys fight because it will eventually come to that if you stay together. But if he is a noble guy, he will find forgiveness and be willing to work it out. I do have some experience with this but I would probably write a book. lol

  • If your cheating episode happened before your child was born, why does it bother your husband now? Do you think that you have any chance of getting back together if you have marriage counseling? There will be an adjustment period for the both of you. You'll have to be strong for your son and be there for him, that's what matters. Remember that you still have each other. I wish you both well.
