My husband had an affair 10 years ago. It was a secret life

Customer Question

My husband had an affair 10 years ago. It was a secret life he had for 3 years. We have worked our way through it and we really do love each other. Is it ever right to tell adult children about this? We act as though we have always had the perfect marriage. In some ways I think they may better understand me. But maybe I am being selfish. Maybe I just want my husband to have to admit to his actions.

Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. May I ask how would it benefit your marriage and your reconciliation process, which has been positive up to this point, if you told your children?
