No, you are not the only one. When things aren't going well or you're feeling unappreciated or unloved, you're bound to have these types of feelings. The thought of running away (into the arms of another) is totally natural BUT if you have the clarity to see this, and it sounds like you do, you'll need to analyze your situation and determine what it is that you're missing and how to work on fixing it.
Remember, if you have a problem in your marriage, you and your husband are the ones that need to work on it. I've heard too many say they've strayed because they had problems but that is the chicken-shit way out in my opinion. You don't bring someone else into the equation; that's only asking for more trouble. If your problems can't be solved and you do go your separate ways, well then, hopefully you've given it your best shot and that's when you can set your sights on someone else.
