cheated on after 23 years
My husband and I have been separated for about 6 months after 23 years together. I was under the impression that we were working towards a reconciliaton.
We stayed in contact, he came over to our house, phone calls and texts, sitting together at church. He would stop by my work, and just continued telling me he loved me. About 5 1/2 months into the separation, I started to notice little things that weren't sitting right, a "gut feeling".
I found out a month ago that he has been cheating on me and has a new girlfriend. Up until 3 days before I found this out, he was still calling, texting and seeing me and still professing his love.
Now he has cut off basically all contact other then necessities and has asked for a divorce. I am not contesting the divorce, I cannot be with someone who has betrayed me in the worst way.
He has been lying to our friends about what happened. All he tells them is I asked him to move out and would not give him any definite answers about our relationship. He neglects to say he has "moved on" with someone else. To me he is playing the victim.
I am ready to end the marriage because I feel that whatever his motives were, he made a concious choice to cheat on me. Has anyone else ever had this happen to them?
