affair recovery

‘Anytime you want to rip my clothes off, you can.’ It was so forward, direct. He knew I was thinking about it.’: Woman admits having 3 affairs before 30, says she’s still ‘learning how to be honest’ with everyone in her life

“Affair number 2 opened my eyes. I was in my longest relationship, lived in a cute little house, and had a decent job. Yet, I wasn’t happy. Something felt off. The day I realized what was missing, I felt a passionate electric surge of energy that warmed my entire body. All from a handshake. From the moment I met him, I wanted to rip his clothes off.”

‘You’ve been lying to me.’ My frantic husband was pacing the room. ‘What’s really going on?’ Tell the truth.’: Wife admits her own infidelity, promises your marriage is ‘worth fighting for,’ says ‘you can gain trust again’

“My phone was in his hand. I was half asleep. He’d found a thread of messages to a friend of mine. I’d been telling her I felt like the other guy was the one for me. Not my husband. As you can imagine, he was blindsided. ‘Tell me what happened,’ he kept repeating. Tears streamed down my face. If I said it, then that made it more real.”

‘Yes, I was naive. I was married to a sex addict and had no idea. I felt like I was staring at a stranger.’: Wife realizes she isn’t ‘weak’ for staying in her marriage, husband has ‘completely owned his mistakes’

“I got a text from my husband. ‘Hey, I’m coming home. I need to tell you something. Cathy is going to meet me there.’ Cathy was a close friend and mentor to me. Why would she need to come also? I sat on my couch with my 4-month-old girl on my lap. My husband confessed he’d cheated with a woman he worked with. A woman who listened to me pour out my heart about my struggling relationship with my husband only one week before.”
