“I am cheating on my husband,” one mother tells me today on my group and she’s wanted to share her predicament with the blog in the hope of receiving support and advice. It’s such a controversial topic that I know views will be mixed. Can we ever condone a woman to cheat on her husband or should we be advising that she’s honest with her husband. And, choose which man she wants to be with or should she end it with both until she figures out her underlying issues? I look forward to seeing what your own views are.
My husband and I have a fourteen-month-old baby girl and to the outside world we look a happy family unit. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. My husband and I have been together for over seven years and I can’t fault him, of course, we have had our ups and downs like all couples do, but he’s always there for me. But I am cheating on my husband and have done for the past six years. I know there are no excuses for what I am doing, but I hope after sharing my story someone will be able to offer me some advice.
I have suffered from depression for as long as I can remember and I also have a problem with amphetamines. It’s nowhere near as bad as it use to be, but it will always be a problem for me. I began taking amphetamines when I was at college; I believed they helped to cope with the stress of college life. I suffer from extreme anxiety issues and have constant panic attacks and the amphetamines make the anxiety feel better, it’s a vicious circle I am trapped in.
I try to stop taking them but then feel like they are the only thing that will help me. It has gotten to the point where I can’t get out of bed until I have popped the pill or two.
I AM CHEATING ON MY HUSBAND AND LOVE BOTH MEN
My life is a mess. I am barely holding it together. I have my husband to thank for so much so you can understand why I feel so guilty that I am cheating on my husband. He doesn’t deserve this, he’s a good man who has done nothing but support me. I don’t have any family that I am close to. And, I don’t have any friends, I have nobody to turn too.
It started as a fling, someone who showered me with attention. But, over the years it’s more than just sex, I have feelings for him, I have fallen in love with him. I love two men. The man I am cheating with is married and has three children and I know he will never leave her. I feel so guilty yet can’t help myself. I don’t want to hurt anybody.
I have tried to end our marriage, but I just can’t do it. I know what I am doing is wrong. My husband deserves better than me. I am cheating on my husband and I can’t stop. I don’t want to stop because I love them both. I can’t take this anymore.
