They have four kids together, and I thought that she was Catholic... what is your opinion? Would you stay in her situation?

  • Me personally.

    No I would not stay in that situation. However, to be fair. I would not have put up with him and his "situations" for nearly as long as she has.

  • I would not stay if my husband had a child and an ongoing affair with someone we continued to know (and employ!) for fifteen years. That is just too much lies and secrets. I am 90% sure I would leave him if he had a child with someone else no matter what the circumstances, but the only way I'd even consider trying to work it out with him if it did was if he told me about it immediately.

  • He has been cheating on her before they got married, she knew who he was! It is only a problem because he has a child with the other women, prove that he is a cheater.

    Catholic's can get a divorce.

  • The cheating would be enough for me to try to get through. Adding a child that has basically been under my nose for his entire life would take it to a whole other level. I don't think I could stay. I'm not saying mine is the "right" answer, but for me, it would be too much.
