We are three years out from D-Day. I have never had full disclosure. I only have what I have found on emails and texts virtually all from the affair partner. Occasionally if my husband is angry he may disclose new information which is information that I previously asked and he swore wasn't true. When we are arguing about his actions during the affair I tell him my feelings and thoughts. My husband can see the hurt and he smiles or sometimes kind of laughs. This creates extreme hurt in me. Why would he do this?
