Soo my sister-in-law “Jenny” and my brother-in-law “Peter” are separating because Peter cheated on Jenny a few years ago. They went to therapy and they regularly attend church. However, she couldn’t get over it (obviously easier said than done).
So Jenny and Peter had a guy come check out something that needs to be fixed in their house this year. Jenny and this guy “Brad” hit it off and now are talking to each other on the phone constantly. She even sent him sexy selfies, something she never did for Peter even though he requested it. Jenny tells Peter she doesn’t love him anymore and wants to start seeing other people, and he reluctantly agrees to do the same. He works with “Elyse” and he just asked her out last week.
It’s important to note that they have been married for 14 years (they’re in their late 30’s now) and have 2 girls – a 4 year old and a 2 year old.
Okay, so I have been married for 3 years and although my husband and I have had ups and downs (and let’s not forget to include that he has a lot of baggage), we genuinely enjoy each other’s company, have regular sex, and tell each other nearly everything.
In 10 years, will I be feeling the same way? If we were to separate (which is not in our plans of course), will he have somebody in mind as soon as I’m out of the picture and would I do the same?
If Edward cheats on me, would I be able to forgive him? I don’t think so.
At the same time, I love my kids to death and wouldn’t want the burden of divorce tainting their childhood. But I would still need to think of my own happiness.
If you were to be cheated on by your partner, would you be able to forgive them after years of being together? Or would you move on to satisfy what was left unsatisfied by your partner?
