So. My husband and I of 9 years have three children. After the girls were born, we waited quite a while before trying for our son. When the time was right, we started the whole routine, taking temperatures, plotting dates on the calendar. Year went by, and nothing. Then something I never expected happened. I ran into an old flame. Someone I'd loved always, but just could never seem to be with. We had drinks, and one thing led to another. I felt awful about it. I'd never cheated on my husband before. Long story short, since I was at least a week or more out from my predicted ovulation when I slept with the other man, when I turned up pregnant four weeks later, I assumed it was my husbands baby. I carried much guilt, and was a bit suspicious, but my husband was jubilant and so were our daughters. I put it out of my mind. When our son was born, he looked just like my husband, I was relieved! But as the years went by, and his features started changing, he started reminding me of someone else. Should I devastate our family by telling the truth? Or let sleeping dogs lie?

You will have to tell the truth sooner or later. I'm not sure what to say. If you let things be as they are, and you wait until everyone is older, or even on your death bed, that will leave an angry group of people behind. If you wait until the holidays are over, and then tell him, then you risk of tearing the family apart. My guts says you need to tell your DH as soon as you can, but wait until your son is old enough to know the truth. No matter what, you are going to have some angry family members. Good luck, with what ever happens.
