How Long Does a Broken Heart Last?

How long does a broken heart last? I need to know..
How Long Does a Broken Heart Last? I am a college senior who has been in a relationship with the same girl for the last 3 years. I am totally in love with this girl and I have only hopes and dreams of marrying her someday.
They say long distance relationships do not work. Well, I have been in one for the last 3 years with more than 1500 miles between me and my sweet hear t and my relationship has been what has kept me sane the last few years.
For the entire time I have been here at school I have been teased to no end for having a big picture frame of my girlfriend front and center on my desk. It stays!
It has been a very difficult and stressful semester, and what kept me going was looking forward to coming home to see my girlfriend.
That was then...
I should have listened when they said, “Long distance relationships do not work!”
So I ask again, how long does a broken heart last?
With only a few days left before I headed home for break, while bored I used a password that I knew my girlfriend used for another one of our accounts and was able to get access to her AOL email account. I want to say that it was a bad idea, but I know that somehow I was meant to see what I saw.
“You’ve Got Mail!”
Oh boy, did she ever!
While on her account, I read emails confirming that she was seeing someone for some time and it was also VERY clear that there was no boundaries to their intimacy.
My stomach sick, heading hurting, I didn’t know if I would be able to catch my next breath after encountering what I did.
It has been three years of hoping, holding on, and loving this girl only to be totally crushed in a single night. Since finding out a few days ago I am yet to speak to her. My heart is ACHING for answers now, but my head tells me to wait until I am face to face with her to show her the print out of her emails.
I feel totally betrayed and NEED to see the look on her face and hear the PATHETIC words that will come out of her mouth if she is even brave enough to come clean.
Adding to my aching heart is not knowing, how long does a broken heart last? I am a committed man and just as I held on to her love while thousands of miles away with temptations looming nightly, I am committed to walking away from my love.
I am NOT asking for opinions on what I should do (she made that decision for me), but rather looking for the answer to my question so that I will know how I need to prepare myself for the days, weeks, and years to come!
