I'm wondering how compartmentalization works with texting the AP from home? How was my husband compartmentalizing what he was doing when he was texting here from our house? My husband has said this is how he was able to keep the affair closed up and separate from his relationship from me. This is a large source of anger for me......how was he able to not think about me when I was right in the same room as him?
