Have Relationship Questions? Ask a Counselor for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am Rafael. Thanks for asking your question - I'm here to support you. (Information posted here is not private or confidential but public).
I am very sorry to know about this very painful situation.
Only you know how overwhelmingly painful it has bee for you to undergo this situation
Could you please tell me what has kept you in this marriage, while it is obvious how your husband does no love neither even respects you and that there is no real nor healthy relationship, sharing, affection, passion nor happiness between you, while he has a close relationship with this other woman?
I am very sorry to know about it, but I think that this does not depend on this person only. She is available and has chosen your husband to have a relationship with, and as painful and frustrating as it sounds, she can do that, she has been doing that all this time and nobody can control it, no matter how wrong it could be. On the other hand, your husband has also chosen to have this affair with her regardless the fact that you are married, his behavior, as yo said, shows that they want to be together and have been doing so for this long through their daily and intimate relationship,while your marital relationship has been this poor or absent for all these years.
I do not believe he is a victim here, since both are are dults and they have been willingly sharign and enjoying their relationship all this long.
I truly think you love hi, otherwise you would not be there after all these time when your marital relationship has practically disappear, but on the other hand, he does not seem to feel the same at all, and they have been planing her relocation where he lives to get closer and continue deepening their relationship. Then there is nothing here that could show your husband respects, loves and cares about you, but he clearly has been building his relationship with his lover for all this long, and it seems to be getting stronger and closer for them.
I am very sorry to confirm your fears, but everything seems to point at that, reality shows they are building and nurturing their relationship and planning to get closer to deepen it even more, then I do not see how your marriage could heal at all or become a healthy and fulfilling one, since everything shows it stopped being healthy and happy many years ago, when your marital life ended,a dn that the only thing you still have in common is the fact you live under the same roof, but that's it, and I cannot imagine how painful it could have been for you to go through this all these years, nobody needs nor deserves nothing like this at all.
It seems you have been suffering of denial as you just acknoledged it
But again, I do not think he is a victim here but both have willingly chosen to build their relationship, and it is obvious they do not care at all about you, and that's why you need to come to terms with reality and start taking good care of yourself, to rebuild your life, and not to continue exposing yourself to this constant pain and suffering.
Please do look for a competent professional to support you with professional counseling , since this is a very tough situation and you need and deserve the best possible support to effectively cope and heal from it. Also consider joining a support group for codependency, since it would complement individual therapy and promote your rehabilitation process.
Does it make sense?
Absolutely, it is overwhelmingly painful, only you know how painful it is. It's very sad but reality shows he has been investing his affection and passion and daily sharing and caring towards this woman, and I believe no matter how good you could be, it would not matter to him, since he does not seem to care, and has been taking care and nurturing his relationship with her.
This is why I think how important it is for you to get necessary support in order to effectively cope with this painful reality, it is not healthy at all for you to expose to this and suffer even more.
I hope you really reflect on this and take consistent action getting the support you need.
If you have any other question I could help you with, please let me know since I am here to support you. Thanks.
