My husband and I have been separated since the end of October. We said it was in order to give it a chance to work but shortly before we split I found out he’d been talking to someone who I not only knew but had worked with. He admitted to it but said it was over and he felt awful. I was made to move out of our home, with my daughter and had to come to my parents home. I had no job, neither did he, (he was laid off 2 years ago and never went back to work. Just does odd jobs for cash) he still doesn’t after 2 years but I’m once again working. I’ve paid the bills, he’s not repaid me one cent. I did begin to realize my own faults and started to repair them. I admit I wasn’t the most pleasant person to live with and took my work problems and anything else out on the two of them. He began to notice my changes for the better and we got closer and a couple of weeks ago on my birthday he proposed we start seeing each other more often and during spring break while my daughter was gone, I’d come home to stay with him for a trial run. I’ve been there for him while he was sick, helped him with money, shared my good times and bad with him over these months. He tells me he will call and seems to forget every time. The day before what was to be our week together I was supposed to meet with him to discuss it. But when I got there, his vehicle was there but he wasn’t. And there was a satin robe in the bed. Next thing I see is her car, the one he’d said he left behind, pulling in with him in the passenger seat. He gets out and tells me he wants her. I slapped him. After a few hours I returned to get my belongings from the house and walked into a different story. He says he lied because he felt like a piece of trash and had to hurt me with untrue statements to make me go. That there was nothing he could say to make it better at that moment so he made it worse saying he loves her. Now he says he loves me, never stopped and wants us to have a chance but he needs to change his life around and needs space. He said he will drop her for good but I’m not sure he will or even has. I’m in pure Hell at my parents house. They are horrible people. I’m trying to save up some money now so I can rent a place with my daughter and just let him figure it out. He was an absolute Rock Star of a human being and husband once. I do know that much of this is from a place of hurt and I feel like it would be wrong of me to walk away at this point when so much of what he’s dealing with may have been caused by my actions at some point. I love him with all my heart but am so angry with the cheating. I never expected he’d be one to do that to us. Am I doing the right thing? He still picks my daughter up at school for me and occasionally has her come to the house after school with him and I’ll get her when I leave work. I do know he loves us. That’s never been an issue. But I can’t be in limbo anymore. This was supposed to be 30 days. Now we are working on 5 months apart.
