We had been married 46 years. My husband was an amazing father and husband. We have 4 adult children. I had a stroke 12 years ago. I walk with a cane and have limited use of my arm and hand but I need no help with any daily life tasks. He tells me that he has been depressed the whole 12 years and I never helped him. I have no memory of him ever telling me that he was depressed. In November he sat me down and said that he had two choices for me to move out or he would try suicide again. He said he was physically and emotionally exhausted taking care of me these past 12 years. I moved to a small apartment and did not about the affair at this point. All 4 kids came home to help me move and in the parking lot my middle son ask if he was having an affair and he said no. He went home and tried suicide. In December I found out about the affair he had been with her for 2 years. By May we were divorced and our home of 34 years was sold and he was living with her. He is a retired minister of 30 years in our small Iowa town and he does not see his actions as a sin because he needed someone to help him. Do you think he might come back to the family?
