‘Walking down the aisle, it never occurred to me there was a 9-year-old girl somewhere he’d trade me for.’: Woman learns to ‘heal’ after infidelity, re-marriage, ‘I thought my bad story was the end, it was just a beautiful beginning’

“I was nervous. I watched my soon-to-be husband look me in the eyes and vow his life to me. I took a deep breath, gathered my courage, and promised my life to him in return. He seemed so happy and sincere. I had no idea he actually wasn’t. How could I know? He was a pastor and loved by our community. Everyone loved us as a couple. I ignored the nagging feeling deep inside me.”

Two separate lives. ‘Honey, he doesn’t deserve your love.’ I was sure I’d never marry again, until our blind date.”

“I saw her name flash on my husband’s phone. He walked out of the bathroom, his shirt half tucked into his undone pants. He looked at his cell in my hand and raised an eyebrow. The trembling in my voice was out of control. ‘Are you having an affair?’ He laughed. ‘I thought you knew.’ My own girlfriends heard the rumors, but hadn’t thought to tell me. ‘We didn’t want you to get hurt.'”
