Hi Sophie,

my husband did the exact same 5 months ago. I am now living with my parents (my choice) with our 3 year old daughter. Our house has just sold and he is living with his parents. I stayed in the home for 4 months and couldn’t be there any longer.

All I can say is it does get better, which a million people told me day in day out at the beginning. And I still roll my eyes if they say it now. But I am much better than I was and have accepted that this is not a reflection on me and he has made a decision he will have to no doubt deal with in time.

I don’t know, but you will have rights regarding your home and financial situation. Have you seen a solicitor to seek clarification on this? You might feel overwhelmed to do this right now, but knowledge brings power. Maybe appoint one of your close friends or family member to help you and they can attend the appointment to support you.

I am under no illusion that I have more difficulties to face, until we are legally divorced. He will be forever in my daughters life and I am hoping in time I will be able to just roll my eyes at him and it water off a ducks back. But like you, it’s so raw right now and everything my husband did following the day he left has just added to his betrayal.

I am part of another online support group that really helped me in the early days and is still supporting me now. It’s full of like minded people and has lots of resources on there to help you focus on you and your children. It’s call surviving infidelity. There are woman and men all over the world who access it and they’re great. I mainly have private messages from/to woman who i have struck a bond with.
