Disclosure

I'm the betrayed. I have told my spouse that I don't have deal breakers in our marriage. I never planned or gave thought to divorce, even prior to his first confession. D-day was July 2015. In May of 2016, there was disclosure of a casual sex, oral sex partner before and after our wedding 25 years ago.

But now, if I want clarity, a time line at least on this most recent disclosure, I hit a wall. He's defensive, and angry. I've told him I would separate if needed, but I don't want to. I want open honest discussion, even when it's tough.

He believes if I'm willing to separate then I'm just going to divorce him in the long run. So any question I have about his first AP or the timing of it turns into an argument about me leaving him.

I am living the same life. I am 18 months in and the pain is no different then D day. My husband spent the last 18 months refusing to talk about the affair. When I forced the conversation, he lied. I became obsessed trying to figure out my life. I would find new information and he would get angry with me. Because of all this I now suffer from PTSD. Triggers invade my thoughts constantly. I wake up thinking about it and end the day thinking about it. I just want to be my happy self again.
