My husband has broken his marriage vows, and has been having sex with many different people for the past five or so years. I found out about a year ago, and asked him to stop this behavior and work on our marriage. He has now declared that he has no intention of stopping, and wants to increase his encounters instead, by visiting local swing clubs and internet dating clubs.
Would I be wrong to demand a separation in this case, or perhaps even a divorce? I don’t want our children to grow up thinking this is what a marriage is. But I feel so guilty, because then I would be the one breaking our vows. However, this isn’t really a valid marriage is it? Even though we were married in the Catholic Church. Dh has said he probably should not have married at all, and that exploring his sexuality is important to him. I should add that he is now an Atheist, and had a very weak Catholic upbringing.
