What is the probable success for a marriage that has experienced the following? My husband has had multiple affairs off and on with same affair partner throughout our 17 year marriage. After closet drinking issues were discovered we separated. My husband went through counseling and Celebrate Recovery. Following this, we began couples counseling and he stayed connected to his Celebrate Recovery partners for a year. During this time we reconciled. He has always done well in counseling and in recovery groups but he rarely follows through with what he has learned. Two years later he began having seizures. After a year of being treated for epilepsy, it was medically confirmed the seizures were not epilepsy but PNEA’s. He became very depressed and started seeing a psychiatrist. My husband is a mental health professional and about a year and a half after his diagnosis, he reconnected with his affair partner. He told me he was unhappy and wanted to move out. He could not or would not talk about why or what was wrong. He moved out two weeks later. Couples counseling stopped. The last discovery happened one month after he moved out. My husband was then diagnosed with DID and Alexithymia. He broke off contact with the affair partner for the third time one year after it restarted. We've been separated for a little over two years.
