I found out in June that my husband has been having affair with my best friend for 6 months and she is pregnant with his kid. Between the two families there are 9 kids under 12, they were all also best friends. This affair has affected so many people as we had the same circle of friends and church family. We did everything together from Sunday school to vacations. We live 5 houses away from each other and having to see her pregnant is a constant slap in the face to me. Me and my husband have separated and her and her husband are staying together for the time being. They both have admitted to loving each other but can't be together bc of all the children involved and the damage it has and would do to them. I am contemplating whether to move out of state to get family support or stay here so the kids can see their dad. The anger and betrayal I feel towards them both is tremendous especially when we have to be at events together like swim team. Will I ever get over this anger and betrayal or is moving away the best answer?
