We are 19 months past D-Day. My husband has had multiple emotional and physical affairs through the entire length of our relationship. We stand with a very tough situation because ALL of his friends and family knew. Some of which encouraged and supported the behavior. Including his father who is unfaithful to his mother and brothers who are unfaithful to their wives. I am working to forgive and have gotten very far with that but stand very conflicted with reconciliation. Some of them I know I cannot reconcile with them because they are still being unfaithful to their wives and others. I feel uncomfortable around them at this time because of embarrassment and fear they will fill my husbands head with negative advice. I’m not sure if in the future that will change but for now that is how I feel. My husband is having a hard time accepting that I do not feel safe when he is with them. It causes a lot of conflict between us and he holds a lot of resentment towards me and feels isolated. Would it be reasonable to leave the relationship because of these other people if he continues to have a relationship with them?
