Checking in here. So things have been in limbo the last week or so since I last posted. She told me she was taking to separate this weekend at her mothers house, and I was to stay home with the kids. Well I know she did not go to her mothers house. She got an AirBNB in the mountains instead, and I called her around 5PM yesterday. We talked briefly, and then I said bye, but did not hang up. I immediately heard her on the phone talking to a male, and heard him start briefly talking. I said, "hey honey, who are you talking to? Yeah why don't you say hi you fucking coward? " She immediately hangs up.
She text me a few minutes later and said she would call me once I calmed down (lol), I did end up getting her to confess that she is cheating. She gave some tip of the iceberg information I feel. Well, I knew the location of the AirBNB she was staying in, and I got one down the street. I drove up (2 hrs) to catch her in the act.
Once I got there, AP was not there, and I called her from outside her AirBNB and talked to her. I was really hoping to catch the other car there at the rental, and confront her about it. I need to know who the person is. She played the "Im scared" act and tried to act as if I was behaving irrationally. Which I was not. Honestly I already knew she was cheating, hearing her say it was a breath of fresh air. I ended up going inside the AirBNB with her and we talked for a really long time. I asked why the AP was in the Poconos with her, when she was supposed to be at her mothers house, and she was supposed to be getting some separation to clear her mind, and process all the resentment she has towards me. (Yes, everything I have ever done in our relationship, I am currently standing trial)
Through all of this, she is still lying and trying to protect her AP. I did say I had a PI follow them, and that I have the persons Identity, make/model and license plate of his car. (I can only bluff for so long, but I asked her if I was able to find your AirBNB and show up at the doorstep, what makes you think I don't have everything I need already?) I asked her to come clean many times, and give me everything and continued to ask for full transparency. She is protecting her AP, saying that she knows I will nuke him and expose him to his wife, ruin his marriage and career. The career comment lets me know she works with this individual. (Also, I was spot on with the Hotel that one day, she admitted to that, after lying about it)
Now that I have her in this spot, I dont want to let go of this. I need to know how to continue moving forward. I did tell her the only path forward is NC with this individual, and if that means changing jobs, so be it.
Here is her response to asking for her AP name.
I don't trust that you won't ruin someone's life and if you do that is going to lead us to divorce bc I know that their partner will come between my marriage and do whatever she can to tear us apart.
Response to asking why this AP's wife would be able to cause any more damage to us than has already occured.
She will come after me and do whatever she can to ruin my life and my career if she knows just like you want to do to him. It will be ugly. And it will not allow us to work through things and that's what you are telling me you want to do.
I asked why the hell she thinks someone would be able to ruin our marriage? We are literally in shambles. This all points to she has told me she cheated, but not the depth and duration. Its a full blown EA/PA, confirmed. How can I trust her ever again if she continues to blame shift on me, gaslight me and will not come clean. She continues to say we need marriage counseling, what a bunch of bullshit. She has been playing me like a fiddle.
I did tell her that the AP has taken advantage of her, caught her in a vulnerable state, likely shared all the nudes she was sending him. He doesnt care about her issues and marriage, he wanted a nut.
