what would you do if your dh... update, day 5

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Of 6 1/2 years told you he slept with another woman and she was pregnant?
dont answer with the " he would never do that to me " because that was me. I never thought my dh would do something like that but he did.
I have kicked him out and am now trying to sort it all out. Btw he told me this morning.

update*

Okay this is day 2 of knowing and i am so very thankful for my friend. She is an older mom (mid to late40s) and i am in 25. She always knows the right things to say.  I have just been praying and praying about this. I feel so calm yet just want to punch him at the same time. I know in my heart that revenge is not the answer. God will deal with that one day. The thing is not only am i faced with him committing adultery but also having this love child come from it. I am being hit from every direction, I do want to hurt him right now. I want to punch him in the face and kick him down and just inflict pain on him but i know thats not right and i don't want to see his face right now. Temptation got to him and the devil made its way into our lives. He wants to ruin our life and has found a way to really get me.  I know God is with me an will guide me. Psalm 34:18 "the lord is near those who have a broken heart and saves those who are crushed in spirit" Thats all i have for now.

update day 3

so yes today is day 3 and after finding the verses, psalms 2:12 "Blessed are ALL who take refuge in Him" and psalms 4:4 "Be angry and do not sin" That one really helped me last night. 

As much as i do want to hurt him and i was thinking that keeping the kids from him would hurt him and i would feel so vulnerable to him by letting him see that kids. Last night i the kids showed me that they need their dad around. I had him come over after work and see the kids. He got the chance to but them to bed last night. Pretty much the whole time he was with them i was shaking out of all the emotions that were going through my head at the time.

I did talk to him after that. I know in my heart that God was/is with me. That is the only explaination to how calm i am right now. I am not a rational thinker. I do usually go towards revenge. I guess i just want to get it all over with at once. inflict as much pain as posible now, this week and just have it be over with and let the healing start from there. I don't want to start healing and have the scab ripped off again and again. When we talked i asked him if he can cut contact with her the next couple of weeks. At first he said no he could not do that but i showed him how much that hurt me and that every time he talks to her now what little is left of me is just crushing more and more. I was not asking him to cut contact with her for forever just for a couple of weeks so we can work things out or try to work things out. He told me that if they don't give the baby up for adoption he wants it to be a part of our lives. That was one of the reasons he said he couldn't cut contact with her. I told him the baby won't be coming in the next couple of weeks.

When he called her and told her that he needed to work on his marraige and wife she got really mad at him. 


Okay thats all i can type for now. I just ask that you please pray for us. I know God has put me on this dificult path for a reason and that he will guide me  and walk with me, but right now I just wish he could show me is plan and lay in all out and say this is how it will end. I want to see the ending now, i want to see what i should be working for.

update Day 5: yesterday we spent most of the day talking. I still can't eat and have to force myself to drink water. Yesterday night I got about 5 hours of sleep and last night I got about 4 hours. I feel numb. When we talked he told me how he felt and how wrong he was in doing what he did. And that instead of talking to her he should have been talking to me. Just because we are talking doe not mean that I forgive him. My kids keep asking about him and the other night one of them kept crying for daddy. That's when I told him that he can come over every night after work and visit with the kids. We also talked about what would be best for the baby. I know I am not the mother but I do know how he wants his kids raised. We talked about a lot of the "Ifs" If we(all three of us) keep the baby and who will care for it and if he really wants that baby added to the mix on what she does and where she leaves her other kids. I know we are careful on who we leave our kid with. I also said how I wouldn't want to pay child support. If they/we keep the kid in our lives, that I am a SAHM and the child can stay here half the time. Also on how torn that child would be if lets say my parents didn't accept it. What then when the kids is older and my kids go to my parents and that kid can't go, or for Christmas The big gifts usually come from my parents and say they didn't want to get that child something. Also how her life would be impacted. She has other kids to worry about and care for. what about when she gets in the 3rd trimester and can't work anymore. Would it be right to keep a child even if she lives in a hotel. I told my husband that I don't think is his responsibility to help her find a place or to help her pay for it. I know that the baby will have a safe place in our home. If she can't provide that on her end then to bad for her. We also talked about adoption. We understand that its not our choice but when we talk to her I feel like we should give her all the options. I know right now she said no to adoption but I think she is hoping that my husband would go with her and leave me. With adoption she will get help with a lot of things and for counseling. There is just so much going on. We are starting marriage counseling soon, next week I think.

I am very sorry that this has happened to you. 

At this point, you might want to find a counselor to help you sort out your feelings and help you determine if your marriage is worth saving. On the face of it, one would think no, but you have not said anything about your husband's character prior to his transgression.

I do understand that my husband did wrong. I really do understand that but i still believe that was the satans way of coming and distroying our life. Again i know that it was my husband who did the wong deed here and no one else. Temptation was there and he gave into it.

Quoting Anonymous:

The devil did nothing.  Your husband is a mature adult who made a decision to satisfy his urges without taking into account the vows he took.  It's his failure of his own character.  Don't forgive him by blaming the error on anyone or anything else.

I was interested in this before you went on with your fairytale crap.

Have faith in YOURSELF. get through this because YOU can! Ever think the reason you're not as strong as you could be is because you are always relying on "God" to lead your way?

Be a big girl, put on your big girl panties, and take charge of YOUR life. Take the next step whatever it may be because YOU want to and because YOU can. No one is leading you anywhere but yourself. Deal with your anger and your pain in whichever way you feel fit.

You are young, and too young to say "My husband would never". You said kids which means you at least have 2 which means you had your babies young with this man. Which I will assume at least the first was not planned, which also means what kept you two together was a baby. Make sure you sit down with this mam and ask him if he truely honestly wants to be with just you for the rest of his life. If he does, move on. If he's hesitant, you move on without him and quit playing games.

And temptation will always be there, and he doesn't have the strength of character to avoid it.  I also find it amazing that this "falling prey to temptation" was kept from you for ages.  He actively did everything in his power to lie to you and keep this secret, until the product of his love affair was revealed and he was FORCED to tell you.


God didn't put you on tjis path, your whore husband did.

I could probably forgive him BUT if he got another women pregnant I would be pissed off. We always wanted a child together but I had to have a hysterectomy. I just don't know if I could forgive him for having a child with another women when we so bad wanted to have one.

Smh. Tell yourself whatever you need to in order to deflect the responsibility from your husband who put you in this predicament.
Ugh.
