    My husband & I have been separated for 11months. It was totally blindsided by it he has refused to talk to me about & there is no contact between us, he picks the kids up set times but there’s no exchange of  information. A wk ago a family member saw him out shopping with a woman, he had cheated on me previously with her & now I’m 100% positive that he has been having an affair, it makes sense all the behaviours before & after he left. I remained close with his mum & other family members but from their reaction I think they have known the entire time, its really hurt me. I’m now on my own dealing with this no family no friends & I’ve never felt so lost & stuck, I can’t afford a divorce or to move out of the area.

    Hi Tania L.

    I’m so sorry that you are going through this. I’m 6 months in. My husband left in January moved in with a woman in Feb but said he wasn’t involved with her before our split. Our separation came out of nowhere. It has left me feeling like the worst human being in the world. I can barely live with myself. Just when I think I can’t feel worse I hear about the happy couple and all the fun they are having as a family when our son visits his Dad. I have not left the house in two months and I’m petrified I’m going to lose my children because of how bad my mental health is. I’m on a waiting list with the mental health crisis team but I’m deteriorating fast. I’m desperate for this nightmare to be over. I also can’t afford a divorce. I feel trapped and a burden. I was his queen one day and the reason for his life unhappiness the next. This is a side of a marriage break up that is hidden away and never discussed. The devastation is life changing.
