This 29-year-old man and his wife, who is also 29, have a 3-year-old son. Three years ago, his wife had an affair with her best friend from high school. She told him about the affair and felt incredibly guilty and sorry for her actions.

Afterward, she blocked the man she cheated with, as well as all of her high school friends. His wife allowed him to look through her phone and social media.

He chose to continue with their marriage for their son, and the only person he told about his wife’s affair was his sister (who was then 28).

Even though his sister was furious about what his wife did, she respected his choice not to file for divorce.

“To my wife’s credit, she has shown nothing but love these past three years. She hasn’t gone on a single girls’ trip, or any trip, without me. She has been a fantastic mother to our boy,” he said.

Last month, his wife planned a wonderful, romantic birthday celebration for him. Over the years, he thought he’d healed and forgiven his wife for her affair.

A couple of weeks ago, his sister called him with the news that her husband had an affair, so they were divorcing. Understandably, his sister was devastated.

“I don’t know what happened, but that triggered something in me psychologically where I was reminded of my wife cheating on me three years ago,” he explained.

Even though he acknowledged that he’d forgiven her after she cheated, he accepted that he couldn’t stay married to her anymore.
