I cannot tell You what to do but I will "briefly" share my story.
I was married 15 years and had 3 Children with a man(?) who NEVER stopped cheating. The affairs I learned of were "friends"(6) and Family Members (2 sisters in law). There were more whose names I never knew (after so many a Wife learns to know the signs). EVERYTIME I found out, He cried, told me He was sorry, He didn't "understand HimSelf why He had affairs when I was the most beautiful person in the world, and He loved me with all His heart. He would threaten to kill HimSelf cuz He couldn't live without me" etc., etc." With His threat of suicide I "forgave" him (again and again) and hid my own pain from the world. Also (like You) I didn't want my Family, His Family, and most ESPECIALLY our Children to hate Him - so I covered it up.
After 15 years I could take no more and I left Him. I took the brunt of the demise of the Marriage because I was the one who left and I never told anyone what He was doing. My 2 sons - NEVER forgave me for leaving Their Dad. My oldest son left here 22 years ago and I have only seen Him twice in 22 years at Family Funerals. I have 2 GrandSons with Him who I've only seen one time each. He wants NOTHING to do with me. I've been told He has issues with alcohol but that certainly does nothing to ease my pain. HE WAS MY FIRST BORN AND I LOVE HIM WITH ALL MY HEART!! My youngest Son died of a drug overdose 5 years ago and was still angry with me when He died. HE WAS MY BABY SON AND I LOVE HIM WITH ALL MY HEART!!
I do have a Wonderful relationship with my Daughter!! and my 4 GrandDaughters!! but there will always remain holes in my heart where my Sons and my GrandSons are supposed to be!!
Today I have a Good Marriage (28 years!!) with a Good Man and I thank God EVERY DAY for my blessing.
Of course, I still see 1st Husband at Family Functions as we share Children and GrandChildren. He remarried 34 years ago and Family Members tell me He cheats in that Marriage as well. My heart is heavy for Her as, I think, She probably blames HerSelf for His unfaithfulness, as I did. We tend to think if WE (Women) were what THEY (Men) wanted us to be, well then, They wouldn't cheat.
ALL that being said, it's on You to decide: WHEN IS ENOUGH ENOUGH!!
You don't deserve to be treated this way!! This I know is true.
Hi and sorry your going through this. I experienced the same and eventually i left her. Some times people screw up and make mistakes and really humble themselves to the feet of the one they have hurt. Some people are just trying to get the most out of life and dont really care who they hurt.
You have to decide which he is as you know him best. He sounds like a creep to me.
I've been thinking about boundaries lately and it is essential to have them. I am all for working on an issue and trying to keep a marriage vow. I find that admirable for sure. But everyone has a breaking point in which things cross over into unhealthy. You have to decide where yours is.
Does your gut tell you it is your insecurity or is your gut telling you that he is lying?
my gut and his actions tell me he is lying i went to the libary and got me a book on due it urself divorce and he went balistic he broke my stove my window and threw me out the hosue w my 9week old daughter and is guna get his stuff out and leave so iguess thats wht is guna happen ive executed all ways i knw how and he just wont change
Agreed. Once someone loses their head in anger and physically thows you and THEIR CHILD out, that takes it to a new level. How someone acts when angry is very telling. You would never be able to trust him. I think a divorce is appropriate. good luck
