You can’t blame him for seeking out his old flame on facebook. You can’t blame her for reconnecting with her college sweetheart. You can’t blame a husband OR a wife for having a hot and steamy adulterous affair…at least not in the State of Florida, since Florida, legally speaking, is a no fault state. What you can do is: 1) realize the marriage is broken; 2) live with it; 3) fix it; or 4) divorce and move on.
Infidelity takes many forms: sexual, emotional, and financial. Or any combination thereof. What kind of infidelity are you sleeping with? Whatever the case, only you can decide if it is worth trying to fix. Even the best intentions are thwarted, sometimes when he won’t give her up…she won’t stop spending…they are room mates of convenience.
If communication won’t break the ice resulting in fruitful discussions, maybe then marriage counseling will help. You both have to want to go. If that is not possible, or you tried and it isn’t working, then be smart about your bad fortune and seek legal advice before you lose the chance to protect yourself from the inevitable. A break in the marriage may seem like the end, but in reality, it is just the beginning of a long a stressful process called divorce.
