    Hi All,

    I am a very newly single Mum to my beautiful 18 month old son and 3 month old baby girl. My husband has left us for another woman after finding out he has been having a 2 year affair with her – how sick!! In this time I have given him 2 beautiful babies. I am currently on maternity leave so am really struggling as most of my friends work full time and unfortunately all my family live abroad. My in-laws have been amazing are being super supportive but I know that eventually he will be back in their lives as he is their son and I wont be able to rely on them as heavily. I guess Im just looking for any advice how to get through this. Im absolutely heartbroken and devastated as I honestly thought we truly in love and happy. I never in a million years wouldve thought he was living a double life and did so well. I am also dreading when it comes to him having the kids – weve agreed he can have them 3 nights out of every set of 10 days (he worls this shift pattern) and I dont think I’ll be able to get out of bed when I dont have my babies. I am going to start counselling to help me through this aswell but any advice/support would be amazing.

    Thankyou for reading x

    So sorry this is happening Emi. All you can do is take one day at a time. And plan something specific for when the children are away. Even if it’s just a manicure & a long call with your mum. Take care.

    so sorry to read your post, must be heartbreaking, some people do not realise hoe lucky they are, not sure why he wanted to have children with you

    if he was seeing someone else, that is just irresponsible, I lost my wife so it saddens me when i hear about people walking away etc, i hope you get lots of support,  Paul
