My husband and I are in week 9 of EMS Online and he has not stopped contact with the affair partner. We are still working on the materials but he seems very much set on chasing this other relationship. He seems to be the second phase of limerence and because their relationship is largely long distance, the reality of it has not hit home. As we are meant to make a decision at the end of week 13, I may need to draw some boundaries that include him moving out and all the consequences that occur as a result. This may need to happen for reconciliation to occur later. My main concern is my son and telling him why he is moving out and if my husband intends to rent a house with this affair partner I am really not happy with my son being in that environment. I know I cannot control this but I am really nervous about telling my son about the affair, especially if things change down the line. Do you have any suggestions for how to deal with this?
