Even though our healing is going fairly well, I can't get over the anger that my husband doesn't have to own up to his actions. He had to turn down work where the affair partner works and only told his boss he didn't want to drive there. He hasn't had to tell his parents why we are struggling. I feel like I carry the burden of the shame for staying with someone who was unfaithful and he gets off easy because no one in his life knows what his actions have cost us. How do I stop feeling like he needs to own up to the affair to people in his life?
