My High School Sweetheart Cheated On Me

i married my high school sweetheart and this May we will celebrate 28 years of being together and 22 years of marriage. On the night before Valentine's Day, I confirmed that my husband has been having an affair with a woman he works with. We blew up, cooled off, he told me he's been unhappy for a long time and just wants things to go back the way they were...I didn't want to believe that our 'fairy tale' was over...so I stayed and tried to forgive. After crying 24/7 i sought help and Prozac...now I feel mostly numb...he acts like nothing ever happened but I doubt myself...feel like I'm unworthy of love...feel like I fell in a hole and can't get out...can't face the future without him...but can't imagine how I'll ever forget and be able to move on....please, someone who has been through this...tell me it gets better....

We are still living together and have two children. We decided to continue living together for the sake of our kids. I met someone and feel like he is what I need on my like now. My husband was furious when he found out about him but now I think he is talking to the woman he had an affair with again. I guess it's like we have agreed on a somewhat open marriage but my husbands knows that I am not going to sleep with him.

Wow im not sure if I could do an open marriage. I thought we could work it out at some point but I just cant get over it. We also have kids but I just dont feel like I can forgive him.

Not sure if you still log in but your story touched me. Going through the same thing and not feeling as if I can ever forgive my husband.

Im going through the same thing too. Looking like divorce is the only answer at this point.
