Such sadness for your family.
Hugs to you all.
My BIL committed suicide 2 year of my marriage. Let me just say it is important to seek support for each family member. The emotional needs and impact will vary by the intrapersonal relationship.
Be kind to yourself, mourn the father of your children with dignity and respect. You deserve that and so do your children.
BS: Me (63yo)
FWH: HIM (65yo) serial infidelities over past 35 years
OW: Many, most recent 1/2 his age
DD: Multiple unconfirmed until 2012 when I presented evidence, plus LTA with his friends wife lasting 10 years. TT over past year

oh sweetie, I am so very very sorry. I have been through it, only I was the teenager, and it was my dad who killed himself.
My advice - get all your kids into counseling as soon as you can, and don't let them (the kids) tell you they don't need it. They do, they will. Especially your son.
You all need to know, and repeat to yourself as often as you have to - this is not your fault. None of you are powerful enough to be able to control another person. None of you!
It's a horrible, horrible choice, but it's one that your WH made. He may not have been thinking clearly, but he alone is responsible for his decision to deal with his life this way.
This is not your fault. This is not your son's fault. Don't let him start believing it is, just because he feels like he didn't get there soon enough. It is not his fault.
Be prepared though, the range of emotions you all might feel will be very similar to the roller coaster after finding out about the infidelity.
Again, I am so very sorry. (((daysofmylife and kids)))
Say what you wanna say and let the words fall out...honestly
I wanna see you be brave
Pretty pretty please, don't you ever ever feel

I'm so sorry for your family. Your poor son having to find him! My dad committed suicide when I was 16. My mom was the one that went to his house and found him (they were divorced). I'm by case, my father was an alcoholic not an adulterer.
As horrible as this all is, it will one day be in the past. It's great that you got your son some counseling lined up already. The most important thing for you and your children to know is that this is not your fault and nothing you did caused this. This is a choice he made on his own.
You're in my thoughts. Please feel free to message me with any questions. I'm 21 years out from going through this so I have some perspective.

Oh, man, I am so sorry...especially that your son had to see that.
Sounds like you are a fierce, protective mama and will get the kids the help they need. Remember to get help when you need it, too.
Again, I'm just so sorry.
I'm Happy, not Sad!
