  1. Until now.

    The Ladies' Lounge
    I vowed until death do us part. I meant it, but I feel like he didn't. We are wonderful together until he comes home from work in a horrible mood. Let me start by telling our story. I am 23 and we were married when I was 20. He is 29. I always figured it would be great being with someone older...
  2. Serious question about staying together...

    Coping with Infidelity
    My first question would be why would you stay? If you have younger kids, I understand. But because you love her/him... Seriously, they sure didn't care about you while being in bed with another! My second question would be how do you accept such an unacceptable betrayal? What can you possibly...
  3. First came his affair. Then separation. Then my affair.

    Coping with Infidelity
    I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT MY SITUATION. I will accept your advice and your judgement equally so please be honest, because it is pretty messed up... My husband cheated on me after 11 years of marriage. For 3 years he endured the symptoms of my recently diagnosed Bipolar disorder...
  4. Letter to my S2BXW?...I believe I can finally move on from this...

    Going Through Divorce or Separation
    I have other post under S4E and Struggling4ever that explain my long painful story, but as a short background, after 20 years of marriage, my wife had an ongoing affair with my best friend about 12 years ago. I found out when I found they were away on a cruise together. It ended abruptly and we...
  5. Wife cheated with my best friend with me sleeping in the next room

    Coping with Infidelity
    A few days ago my wife confessed to me that she had a sexual encounter with my best friend while on a trip. She told me that they kissed and touched for over 2 hours in the next room. She claims that he didn't penetrate her with his penis, but he did use the finger, I don't know if its true or...
  6. I lost my Best Friend

    The Social Spot
    This is a long story, but I appreciate you reading! So my Brother In Law is actually my best friend. We (usually) text consistently through out the day (usually making fun of each other) and now he hasn't talked to me even AFTER I apologized and I don't know what else to do. What happened...
  7. I'm Expected Not To Go To His Funeral?

    Dealing with Grief and Loss
    One of my smartest and most earnest friends passed away two days ago. He was one of my first guy friends, my first kiss... We have been friends since I was 12 and I'm now 25. So needless to say he had a huge impact on my life. When I think about how drastically my life would be different without...
  8. Do triggers and memories ever go away?

    Coping with Infidelity
    After deleting, I'm back with my story…update to follow, My wife had an affair 11 yrs ago. I found out when she went on a cruise with her sisters and I called the cruise line to send flowers. When they said my wife wasn't registered, they asked if she was registered under another name. A voice...
  9. 20yr marriage, soulmates, EA, and now a TUMOR

    Coping with Infidelity
    Bullet points, because they help me to not be so verbose: June: Husband said things to OW like “you’re my #1 fan”, “when you’re hurting it feels like it’s happening to me”, “that’s what I love about you” which devastated me because there were many problems I toughed out for 20 years (financial...
  10. Best friend may like me?

    General Relationship Discussion
    Hello! I am new to this website. And I am in desperate need of help. A few years ago I fell for my best friend and it ruined our friendship because she didn't feel the same way. The next year I moved on with my life and stopped talking to her. When I was sure that I could handle being her...
  11. Second Guessing...sad to lose my best friend

    Considering Divorce or Separation
    My husband of 8 years (anniversary was yesterday - SAD day) and I have been separated for 8 months. He was going through a mid-life crisis or depression and really wasn't himself. It was his decision to leave and within a month he was ready for a divorce. I could see this was a different...

    I've been with my husband for 7 years now, married for 2. We recently relocated to another state, 2000 miles from our families.

    Hi... A friend of a friend was recently talking about marrying her gay best friend. She has children and is divorced, and really wants to marry him - they love each other, just not in a sexual way. She says it's a great way to provide financial and emotional support to her and her children...
  14. Boyfriend or Best Friend

    General Relationship Discussion
    I know the title reads as if i am in a situation to choose between my bf or best friend, tough but not as bad as when they are the same person. I met my boyfriend a bit less than two years ago and we developed a loving relationship. But other things in life weren't right, to make story short...
