You really need to read all the post but especially GoldenR’s post again.
She is not clearing her head. She is trying to get him to leave his wife.
With your win her back mindset she will just continue the affair even if she comes back.
You deserve better than this.
Please at least do the self improvement stuff and make sure you are telling your counselor everything you told us.
I can’t believe they would know what you told us and not tell you to get a paternity test.
You have to get one. You have no choice. It would not be in the best interest of the child to have doubts or to be growing up in an unstable marriage with a cheating wife. While all children should have a stable two parent home that is not the goal at all cost.
There are lots of reasons it would be better to have separate homes.
You do not want to be stuck raising and bonding not to mention financially supporting another man’s baby.
You can either go through intense pain now (which you are already doing) you you can go through years of it and still end up where you are now except even worse.
You had better believe as bad as shape as you are in now it can get much worse.
This is not going to get any easier if you go down the path you are choosing 2 months, 2 years or 10 years from now.
More responsibilities, more kids, more financial ties, more family bonding and boom he gets kicked out next year and your wife leaves you then.
Please make sure the wife is informed. I don’t care how you do it as long as it’s done.
I know you are hurting but you have got to stand up for yourself and take action. She is not in charge you are. You don’t need to win her she is not the prize.
She betrayed you. She need to win you back.
You don’t understand until you have that mindset she does not respect you. Since she does not respect you she is not attracted to you.
A lot of the reason she loves him is because he won’t leave his wife. She is trying to win him. She is ass backwards. She is not logical she is emotional. It’s very clear what is going on. You can’t see it clearly because your feelings are overwhelming your logic.
He told her he loved her so she is taking this time to see if he will finally leave his wife. Unfortunately it sounds like you have been the side relationship this whole time while her heart was with him.
If he doesn’t she may come back. But because you are begging you will have no leverage. If she did come back she would have to quit her job, cut out all mutual friends, change her number, delete him off all social media and give full transparency to all her devices. But you have no leverage and she has no real investment so she won’t do it.
Since she won’t do it and she is still sticking to the we have not had sex… (bullshit). She will resume the affair and keep fighting for him. Of course she will. You won’t kick her to the curb so she has you for safety while she Pursues him.
Get a lawyer tell him everything about the paternity doubts. I bet he tells you to get one.
Also you never had a real wedding or honeymoon. These things that are supposed to be some of your happiest memories will now always bring you sadness.
You deserve for these to be great fond memories.
Get a divorce, work on your self. If you want to try and date her again (you shouldn’t) go back to dating. If she proves herself safe after several years maybe you can try again.
You deserve a real marriage. You are worth it.
Again you should walk away and never look back (unless the kid is yours). If it’s yours that will require different advise.
You are stuck and while it is understandable why you feel that way (again you are actually experiencing a real trauma) it’s not ok to do nothing.
You have to get a divorce. You have to get a paternity test. You have to practice self improvement so you are confident enough to meet someone else and not be dependent on her. These are not optional.
Wishing and fighting for her are not going to work. It may work in the short term but you are in for a world of future hurt.
Ironically if you took a stand, got the divorce, told his wife, got the paternity test, walked away, blocked her number, and improved your self and met somebody else at a minimum her respect for you would improve. Ironically her attraction would increase as well.
Please take care. At least calling an attorney and talking to them about divorce and paternity won’t change the situation you are in for now. At least try to do the baby steps while you are in this holding pattern.
