My ex partner walked out 5 weeks ago after 15years and it has turned out he has seen other women on and off throughout most of our relationship and the latest one he has been seeing for over a year I feel truly devasted I have 2 sons aged 9 and 13 and trying to keep it together for them any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Hey, I’m sorry your going through that. It’s incredibly painful when a relationship ends, even worse when there has been an affair. You will get through this, it’s so shit but so true that time will heal your heart. My ex walked out on me and our daughter on Boxing Day 2 years ago…she was 8 months old. 2 weeks later he was with another women. I was left to look after my daughter alone and was going back to work full time after maternity. At the time I was so hurt. I made the decision to cut him totally out of my life, he had to arrange with my parents to see our daughter. I didn’t want anything to do with him. Fast forward 6 months and he was begging me back. But by this time I had seen him for what he was and got my strength back. We are on talking terms but he rarely sees our daughter, let alone pays for her. I honestly prefer it this was as he isn’t a good role model. Allow yourself time to grieve but be strong for your boys. Cutting my ex out was the best thing I did, like ripping off a plaster. It gave me back control and helped me put things into perspective. It also meant my daughter didn’t witness any arguments. Hope this helps, big hugs xx ps I now love being single and really don’t want a man hogging the sofa and remote….loving life!
