Firstly an apology.. i really am sorry... sometimes i just read the original post.. but not all the replies.. so i missed it.. i'm sorry, i really am.
when you asked if a marriage could survive depression... i said Yes.
now the question is.. can a marriage survive infidelity... i say No !
That's not a marriage... so i'm prepared to stick my neck out and give you little advice here (you don't have to take it remember)
if You want this.... 'man'?.. back for any reason.. draw a line in the sand ! if he can't 'choose'... then you make him... give him a deadline.. a few days... a week at the most !
get his ass back in the house.. and knock off the shit or its over !
think of what he told you to your face... He's met a slag who is 'everything' compared to you ? You are the mother of his son !.. and he has betrayed you both with that remark !
I still believe in 'True Love'... could i meet another woman and leave my wife ? Yes ! if i fell in True Love i'd have to... but i'd handle it better.
this guy obviously doesn't care about how much he hurts you.. or he wouldn't of said it.
You must be devastated... but you must think of your son now.. so.. 'daddy' wigged out... its a sickness of the modern world.. just remember, theres nothing 'wrong' with You !
he picked a hell of a time of year to pull this shit.. if you let him he will go on hurting you for a long time... you need to settle this quickly... what ever YOU decide.. then you can all get on with the rest of your lives.. including your son.
It broke my heart to read you post.. i can hardly imagine what you must be going through... i'm so very very sorry for what you are going through.. Just remember its not You.. if your husband is an idiot who wants to piss his life away that's up to him.
Just as your future happiness is up to YOU !
You're going to have to be so strong.. for you and your son... decide for yourself what you want.. and then make it happen.
i so wish i could reach out and fix this for you... you're not as alone as it seems... you could stay here with us !
we maybe crazy.. but we're good people...
And so are You
this wasn't your fault !
all my Love
