My husband had an affair for almost two years with a co-worker who is also married. It has been 1 week since discovery and almost 2 weeks since his last encounter with his affair partner. Based on his story of those events, there is a good possibility of her becoming pregnant. He says she's on birth control and says she also took another contraceptive to help further prevent pregnancy. Would we be wrong to completely cut her off along with the child to help our marriage survive? I don't think I can continue if a child comes from this affair.
