I had an affair that result on a baby born, the baby is 15 months old and I just told my husdband what had happened, and that the baby is not his, he went crazy, for the past 3 weeks i feel like somthing die inside me , so much pain that I can oonly imagine what he is going trouhtg , he still want me, to want this relationship to work, but at the same time he is just killing me with questions and insults, I want to go for help, he dosnt, he want me to give my baby to one of my family members to raise her, he said he dont want to see her , but how can he still want to be with me?
He is very emotional right now. You have dealt him quite a blow. First find out what you both agree is going to be the major decision - are you staying together. If you are going to stay together then find a marriage counselor. This is a huge issue. If he doesn't want to go then he isn't ready to move on past this. If he doesn't want the relationship, then make plans to separate. You can't torture each other. And you certainly can't disown your child. The big concern is how he is going to treat this child if you stay together. You have a big decision to make regarding how he treats this child. In the end you are mom and you have to protect her/him. You have a choice whether he abuses her and you. Decide what you both want and proceed accordingly

I dont not what to do , I feel like Im going crazy, plus listening to him every time he want details of what happened is insaine.

It sounds like this relationship is abusive and toxic to your well being. Relationships like that don't change although marriage counseling is always an option. Anyone who is controlling most times remains controlling. Their need to control is greater than their need to be loving. You may find that he is resistant to any intervention and will not give up that control to a professional or anyone else. It is admirable that you are standing your ground. This shows that you are finding your strength and this will do you well. Keep focused on that strength and find the best option for you. The optimal choice would be to leave this relationship and find one that is supportive and loving but of course that is your decision. He is not going to change so you have to decide if you can live with this person. Most cannot
