Stressful Family Life

Not being able to trust your partner is a deal breaker for sure, and it leaves you wondering what's left of your marriage/partnership. I had an unexpected leave last week and the whole time I was gone, I only had my dad to worry about. I came home, thankful to be home but wondering what it would have been like to have to be out of state during the time I was with my ex, and having to deal with his cheating. I don't think that I could have gone through that stress on top of watching my dad go through open-heart surgery. Having a cheating husband/wife is extremely stressful, and I don't know how some deal with the added stress of illness or family matters.

I know what you mean. I was pregnant w/ our 3rd child and preparing for his deployment to Afghanistan when we were going through his infidelity. The added stress definitely made the whole matter of recovering from infidelity that much harder.

My heart goes out to you, Deb. I am still hurting from the pain, too. I don't know when the pain will stop, but we must be strong for our kids and have faith that this too will end. The clouds will part and I believe our hearts will smile again even if it does a while before that happens. Keep your chin up!
