I've just read a REALLY interesting story by a woman who forgave her husband's affair. Here's the link: Why I'm forgiving my husband for falling in love with another woman | Mail Online It's a long column (totally worth the read), but just incase you're not in the mood for it, here's the jist: Husband becomes transfixed with Facebook, meets an old crush and begins an affair, wife finds out, husband reckons he ALWAYS loved his new mistress all of his life...what should the wife do after more than 20 years of marriage? Her story is really interesting. What would you have done? If you don't mind, could you also put which generation you are from in your post if you reply? It will be interesting to see if it's an age thing. I'm a child of the late 1970s (born 77) and I fully support what she did. She fought for everything that was dear to her and looked at what she could do differently to keep her marriage and family from failing.
