Strawberry Letter: I Trusted Him Until…
I am a 36-year-old mother of 3. My husband and I have been together for 17 years. We have been married for 13. I have always been a trusting wife. I never doubted anything he ever told me. I never thought to check his phone, emails, or Facebook page…until recently.
About 2 months ago, my husband’s alarm on his cellphone went off. He was in the bathroom. I reached over to stop the alarm. When I did that a text popped up that read “I love you.” This text was not from me. It was from another woman. In this text, he went on to say “I love you” and asking her if she wanted him to visit her. She lives in Missouri I believe. So I confront him with the text. He of course says that there is nothing going on. I told him that I didn’t want to hear it and that the only reason he is not getting cussed out was because 1 of my children was awake. I had to go out-of-town that weekend.
Of course, he called me begging and pleading. He claimed that he just texted it to her because she did. WHAT? He also claimed that their conversations were about me. He said that he was getting advice from her on me. Ummm…how? She has never met me. He said tht we didn’t communicate enough. But he decides to go outside of our marriage and “communicate” with another woman. I am an emotional wreck.The person who I trusted the most hurt me so bad. Should I forgive him? Do you think we can get pass this?
