I’m a somewhat regular poster around here, but this is an alt identity. Either way, my username says it all. I’d be LostWithoutHer.
My wife of 7 1/2 years, and mother of my 2 children 6 &3, has found herself in a bad situation. I found out that she had been lying to me and seeing another man. I confronted her about it, and she’s really confused, and says she doesn’t know what she wants. She says she wants “space” right now to figure things out.
I had it all, or so I thought. A beautiful wife, 2 great kids, a home that was TRULY a family home. We sat down to dinner as a family EVERY NIGHT. I have given every minute of my life for the past 7 1/2 years to my family. My family IS my identity.
Now, it’s all been pulled out from under me. I haven’t been able to sleep tonight. I hope I can tomorrow.
I told her that when she comes back, I WILL forgive her. And, she knows this to be true. She knows me as well as anyone has ever known me. She knows I’m honest and faithful to my own detriment. People “get over” on me all the time. I never exected it to be her.
I don’t want her to leave. I want my family. I’m willing to forgive “seventy times seven”.
Please. Pray for my family, so that it may remain intact. For our children most of all. I can’t bear the thought of coming home from work and not hearing “DADDY!” Some days, that’s all that gets me through is knowing that they’re home to greet me.
Please. I need all the praryers I can get right now. I’ve never felt so broken in all my life.
