Is it normal to refer to your AP as a girlfriend and/or boyfriend? My husband had a 4 year affair in which time his AP (married) also had another AP which my husband refers to as her boyfriend. I am the betrayed and this hurts since this means he thinks of himself as single as well as AP as single never married or recently divorced. I don't know how to respond or handle this issue.
