My husband had a 2 1/2 month emotional affair with his "first love". They had dated in their early teens and my father-in-law had had the friendship/dating relationship cut off due to them being too young for dating. The initial friendship lasted less than a year but now 30+ years later my husband contacted the woman and calls her his "first love". I had never even heard about her before this affair was revealed. They did not have a sexual relationship back when young but came close to having one 6 months ago after reconnecting. When he disclosed the relationship he told me that he loves his AP and always will but that he loves me and does not want to lose our marriage. Can a man truly love two women at the same time? Will he eventually realize that what he feels for her is not love, or is it?
