My STBXH was here tonight picking up my daughter. We have been separated for almost three years and a divorce is almost final.
He was involved in an emotional affair with a widow, which he still denies was an affair. There was a lot of sneaking around, hugging, lying, her butting her way into our marriage and complaining about her own marriage. I asked him to end the relationship and he refused. Started MC and he was told to end it. It took him 3 and half hours at her house to do it. I don't know if it ever ended. He never did transparency, thought we were in counseling to fix my problems, resented and was defensive answering any questions or defended her if I said anything about her. Three months into counseling I saw on his computer "married but in love with someone else" google search. Six months into counseling he was chatting with her on computer at home. Says it just started back up then. He left that day. And has been with her ever since with her controlling his every move.
Today he starts telling me about a male friend from work that I know as well. He was separated from his wife around the same time as us and is now divorced. He told me this friend says his wife is nuts. And then he asked if I was nuts. My husband says no. So this friend asks then whose fault is the divorce. My husband says it is both of ours. Really? He is still with this woman to this day. I have been with absolutely no one.
I have done everything I can think of to improve me so he would be happy with ME. I could not be nicer or more helpful to him. And he says it is both our faults? He treated me like poison the last month he was here, he treated me like a fool for believing and trusting him. He treated me like I have no value and am just discarded as he moves on with his life.
I just stood there with my mouth open as he left. I wanted the marriage so bad and was willing to do whatever it took to keep it. And he says the divorce is both our faults.
