New guy here but I’ve been around infidelity a while now unfortunately.
1991 Mum had an affair and left my Dad, me and my little sister to go off and marry another guy.
Years of pain and fuckery
2008 Met future partner, mother of kids
2015 Daughter is born (very hard for me after my experience of childhood)
2016 Move to small town in rural Sweden (Wife’s home town).
2017 second daughter born. I was better this time but extremely anxious about responsibilities.
2021 family coasting (or so I thought). Two beautiful healthy girls, breathtaking house next to a river, good careers, good finances).
2022 (August) ILYBINILWY , cheaters handbook, gaslighting, minimising, etc.
October 2022 (October) BH goes off-rails, Goes missing, reported to Police, found by Police, sectioned to psych ward for 3 weeks. 4 rounds of electro shock therapy to wake me up.
Xmas 2022 Talked into false R with WW. Living in some form of first hell. Find the Mort Fetel Marriage Fitness Guide. Attempt the biggest pick me dance in the course of history.
Feb 2023 fired from job for getting hospitalised (they lied to the lawyers about this). And said I was being made redundant.
March 2023 Affair almost certainly resumes (yes, even after the carnage of last year).
April 2023 ("I’ve been feeling like this so long"
"tried to get a counsellor to change my feelings" (she got this from Ted Lasso how pathetic). Says she wants to leave.
May 2023 Can’t take it anymore. Leave my WW, house, job, kids, cats, bills, life etc… move back to UK
May 2023 she requests separation. She suggests renting our house out via her AP’s brother. Files at court to be able to rent out house.
July 2023 BH got drunk and abused via texting WW,OM and OMBW. Not my finest hour.
August 2023 Finally BH wakes up. There is no possibility of ever R here because she has made the humiliation of me so complete.
