Dear Rick, We are 10 months past d-day and thankfully my EMSO group continued and we are currently involved in MFL. We are also attending marriage and individual counseling. We are in a rural area and are grateful for the resources we have found. My husband had 4 physical affair partners with varying degrees of physical activity, and multiple on-line partners including pornography addiction during our 15-year marriage. I discovered all of my husband’s infidelities at one time (except for the pornography which I discovered years ago but thought he no longer viewed). He ended all affairs and has become transparent. He does still struggle with pornography but is in counseling for this and other issues. I become so discouraged by the magnitude of his betrayal and often feel as if the odds are stacked against us. I question if I will ever be comfortable in my marriage again or if I will always remain on high alert. Most information I have read as well as my affair analyzer advises of the risk of future relapse for those who have multiple affairs as compared to those who only have one affair. Would this be true for someone whose actions were discovered at one time?
