A woman has shared her heartbreak after discovering that her husband of 25 years and the father of her children has a whole other life.
The devastated lady, who shares three children with the man she thought was the love of her life, said she’d been left “broken” by his deceit and lies.
Taking to Reddit in an anonymous post, she opened up about his betrayal and how she has coped since being delivered the blow, The Sun reports.
She explained: “My husband has a second family. The ultimate cliche has happened in my life and I’m absolutely broken.
“My husband, my rock, has been having an affair for over 17 years. We have been married for 25 years.
“We have three beautiful children, two in college and one who still lives at home – but turns out he’s had another set this whole time.”
The woman then shared further details, as she revealed that her other half is an insurance broker and therefore often travels with work, spending one week on and one week off at home.
However, now it has emerged that on his “week off”, he’s been playing happy families with his fiancee and their two teenage children.
She then shared how social media helped her to discover his infidelity after she decided to set up a Facebook account.
She explained: “When I searched my husband’s first name, another profile with another last name popped up, through that profile were the links to his fiancee and other kids.
“My husband is currently with said family and I know it’s him because his most recent post is a photo of him and that other family eating dinner.
“Among those photos were photos of him kissing the girl and him being fatherly with the kids who look nearly identical to my husband.”
The anonymous woman then said she is unsure how she will confront him, but “almost every part” of her “wants to scream in his face and reprimand him for ruining” her life.
Yet, she also admitted that as “her heart is in shambles” and that a different part of her wants to pretend she never saw so as not to disturb their “peaceful” family life.
She concluded: “I don’t know what to do anymore. I can’t be in the home where we’ve raised our kids, where we’ve spent every Christmas for the last 26 years.“ And where I’ve been alone on New Years’, taking care of our babies while he “ works”. I just can’t.
“I want to leave a note for him too, to hurt him like he’s hurt me, but I don’t think that’s possible. I don’t know how I’ll ever face him again.”
