    I don't like people to think of me

    as a victim. My ex never hide his affair. He moved in with you right away, took her on the vacation we planned together and posted pictures of it on the Internet. He married her as soon as it was legal in the state. He excused his behavior by telling others I pushed him into...

    The aftermath of this is nearly unbearable.

    It has been 9 months or so since the confession and everything is still in turmoil. I am still very depressed and not sure about moving on or moving out.
