Divorce after infidelity

‘A text from my husband came in. ‘I’m not happy. I want more. If you’re coming home, I won’t be here.’: Woman finds ‘new version of happiness’ after husband’s abandonment

“I pulled into a Dunkin Donuts parking lot and tried to call him. His phone was off. When I made it home, nothing was out of place. Except my husband was gone. Large bar tabs appeared on our statements. Girls’ phone numbers came up on our records. The following week, he agreed to meet me at the park. ‘I want a divorce.’ He was cold, emotionless. I refused, which made him angry. I obsessed looking for something that may have led to this. Some sort of sign. He offerred no explanation.”

‘I gasped for breath. ‘I…read…your texts!’ I could barely get the words out. I was hyperventilating.’: Women re-discovers herself after husband’s affair and ensuing divorce

“I saw the pictures and read the words, but my brain couldn’t understand. My arms were tingling. Alarm bells were ringing in my head. ‘What? Why was this woman, his assistant, texting this to him?’ I slumped to the bathroom floor, then shakily stood and made my way down the stairs, using the handrail to prop me up.”

‘He had a stranger over at my house where my kids sleep. My entire 10-year marriage was a lie.’: Woman credits husband’s infidelity with life- changing weight loss

“In one night, I found out I weighed over 400 pounds. I also found out I was pregnant and losing a baby in one breath. That moment was a severe wake-up call I needed to change my life. I didn’t realize how much my husband’s infidelity had affected me until I stepped on that scale. I left him without a car and without a plan.”

‘My husband was living a double life. I found YEARS of mail in his trunk. He changed the locks, abandoned me in a parking lot.’: Woman re-marries ‘amazing’ man she met on blind date, says ‘love always wins in the end’

“He had another daughter I didn’t know about. I did some digging and found empty pill bottles and beer cans in his car. The car that drove my child to daycare. At 32, I had to move back in to my childhood bedroom, so ashamed of myself. My daughter and I tried to make the best of our ‘vacation’ as I called it. My husband was an addict and con artist, and I got duped.”

‘Are you sleeping with my husband?’ He was working ‘odd jobs’ at her house. There was always something he needed to ‘fix.’: Woman finds self-love after infidelity, ‘I deserve to be enough for someone’

“Kayleigh and I were inseparable friends. After years of infertility, she was the first person I told about my pregnancy. ‘That’s great, babe!’ she squealed. She was such a support, dragging me off to go baby shopping on weekends. I was 4 months pregnant, but it got to the point where my suspicions were just too strong. I confronted her. She looked me straight in the eye and said, ‘No. But he’d be all mine if I wanted him.’ I was totally shocked.”

‘The text was simple: ‘Later 2nite.’ He was my husband. She was my great friend. ‘At least I come home to the family,’ was all he could muster.’: Woman urges us to inform friends about infidelity, ‘let’s keep the sisterhood alive’

“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.'”
