My husband has dad an affair with a woman he also works with

Customer Question

My husband has dad an affair with a woman he also works with from another state. He has to go to that state because we have a business there. I have asked him to stop all communication with her. Business we have with her can be handled by someone else but refuses. He reminds that she is his friend and wants to keep a professional relationship with her. I told him they stepped over the professional relationshiop. Friendship isone of the reasons he went to her he felt I was no longer his companion or freind. She says she has moved on but how can she when she is still in contact with him. I found out about the affair and brought to ahead. It has been going on for over 3 years. I know for a fact she will wait for him as long as it will take to decide who he wants. He is seeking help this saturday.

Dr. Ed Wilfong :

THis is sad. If he gets help alone, his odds of leaving you are higher than if you seek help as a couple. Things certainly don't always work out, but couseling together typically helps both people understand and accept the direction things are going, regardless of outcome.

JACUSTOMER-41a000wu- :

You did not answer my question. about communicating with the other person. Why would he continue.

Dr. Ed Wilfong :

Because he is not willing to cut contact with her. Sorry, I did not see that part of question.That fact should tell you which direction this is heading.
