What angers you more about the affair? ( regardless of whether it was an EA or a PA)
In my case it is how easy it was for him to lie to me time after time. To look me in the eye and lie to me. I can't get over this one.
( He knows this; I have told him to his face many times.)

The lies, it began and ended with the lying, and it is so hard to imagine that much lying in the same home and from the person that I knew, and how much lying went on.
Lied to me and about me, lied to the kids, lied to babysitters, lied to everyone.
Then, this got compounded by all the lies to cover up what went on, and what was going on internally, for year, after year, after year (9 years in our case).
BH - Me - Late 30's (now late 40's)
WW - Her - Late 30's (now late 40's)
Her - Love of my life...still is.
Reconciled - Partly...she can't get over it.
Her - Thunderstruck by what she did.

The cover up, the fact that she used people such as family to watch our daughter so she can have her rendezvous, the using me to get smart phones and then hiding the messages and the excuses they used to commit the affair and then the locations...his house and our house. just sickening.
I am now nothing by a mere Ronin.

I'm most angry that my WS didn't have enough respect for me or himself to use a condom when he was screwing the OW thus putting us both at risk. As luck would have it, he got the std but I didn't.
The endless lies and disrespect are a close second though.
2 young kids, Married 10 yrs
OW 22, admitted to EA and then TT to PA two weeks later. Also, found out about several "friends".

The lies, the fact that he told the OW all about me, complained about me to her constantly. Whenever I did something he didn't agree with, no matter what it was, he asked her for her opinion

The lies. How angry he was for 3 years after the ONS. He let me believe this was due to things I or the kids had done. I felt I was the worst possible wife, when in face he was the worst possible husband.
Kids 10 and 3
Embracing the furture. I know that I will be great no matter what the future brings.

All the lies one after another for over a year even though I told her what was going on. The disrespect she had for me to do it in my house while I was in the hospital. I just don't get it!!!!!!!

1) The lies, which includes (this is the short list) the betrayal of trust, the deceit, & the blatant and flagrant disregard for me
2) In addition to penetrative genital sex with her (compliments of his expen$ive boner pills), he did one particular sex act with her (often!) that he told me he didn't really enjoy doing. Philosophically though, the few times he did it with me, waaay back when, he was really bad at it. I doubt he improved.

The realization that he texted her regularly while in my presence...when I just thought he was surfing football, FB, etc. The hurt and betrayal I felt was (is) heart wrenching. It makes me feel incredibly stupid and I resent the hell out of the fact that he didn't respect me enough to at least refrain from communicating with her when I was in the freaking room.
Hmmm...amazing how thinking about it can bring that anger boiling to the surface instantly. And while I'm thinking on it... the brain fog needs to lift...I resent how unfocused and scattered I am ALL the time now...
R is going to he a long process I think...

The disrespect for me
All the lies
The blame shifting ..Trying to make me think that I was a boring, neurotic, stick in the mud no fun wife who was hard to live with..
Blowing off my suggestions, minimizing my feelings, gas lighting me..

Similar to what someone said above. Using me for a cushy life. I was the person who worked to get the house, the nice things we have...the only thing he wants to participate in buying would be anything electronic or cars. I felt I was the "ligitimate" way he wanted to world to see him but was a sneak and a cheat behind my back and everyones back.
And I was angry, so angry that I was used. I did it all because I thought thats what you do when you love someone....but I got suckered into doing it all, wearing myself out to the point of exhaustion so that he could show or the right word would be "fool" the OW or others how hard he worked to get it all.
You hear so many times a WS saying that the won't confess because they don't want to lose their family or the money or their cushy life.
Yeah no kidding. That would ruin it all wouldn't it?
I am speaking only of myself and my sitch but you can tell I am probably still angry huh?! Its like I knew it but just couldn't believe it. I felt used.

Definitely the lies.
The whole betrayal.
The EA I could get over - the fact that he could look me in the eyes and lie still haunts me.
Fool me once - Shame on you. Fool me twice - pack your shit and get out.

Yes, that's it exactly. The lies, the continuous lies. How can you love someone, trust them so completely and survive the knowledge that they lied to you over and over and over and over and over.........................................................................................................................................

For me what hurts the most is how he is rewriting our marriage to make it seem like it was 13 years of hell and unhappiness and making this about how he is entitled to be happy. That is what hurts me the most.

The fact that he could pretend to be a doting and living husband all the while calling, texting, and most likely meeting escorts from Craigslist.
More so, that he did these even on our honeymoon.
Its just utterly disgusting and low.

The lies... All the lies...
How he could push OW's and our family closer together. I considered her my friend. And my kids still ask about her kids...
How could he do the physical stuff with her.
How he could say he loved her.
How she could open the door to our house to her...

Him - fWH 37
