My husband is having an online affair. We have recently separated over it (in-house separation) because he refuses to give it up and he spends hours chatting online or on the phone with her. She is a phone sex operator and he pays to speak to her. He believes their relationship is real. It is obvious to me that she is just scamming him.
I feel terrible that it has come to this, but he has had issues with porn and chatrooms for years now. In the past he was remorseful and tried to overcome his behaviors, but now he is embracing this fully and I feel that separation is the only option, especially since he is now moving around money to pay for his online affair.
Does anyone have any experience with this? I am devastated at the thought of separation and divorce, but it seems to be the only option now considering my husband is fully invested in his online affair/ fantasy.
