lonely sad girl feeling that partner is cheating

Years ago, I found out that my husband was cheating on me. I decided to stay, but one of the reasons I stayed was because of how I discovered this brief affair. First of all, I didn't even suspect for a single minute that he was cheating on me. We were both Christians and had only been married for 5 years. I was pregnant with our second child. The only reason I knew it was because he sat me down and confessed to me.

I was devastated, heartbroken, and I didn't trust him for a very long time. Why did I stay? First, because I really liked him. Second, because I knew he really loved me. Third, because he had made a really horrible decision by cheating on me, which he very much regretted.

In fact, I decided that the three sexual encounters he had with this other woman did not correspond to the five years of marriage (eight if you count the encounters) and the beautiful children we had conceived together.

By the grace of God, I forgave him - knowing that it would be a long way to regain the lost trust. We have re-committed to our marriage and our family, and to God. It wasn't easy, but we did it.

We were happily married for 33 years before her death, and we had three wonderful children. He never cheated on me again, and if he was ever tempted, he would admit it to me right away.
