She cheated on me thirty years ago and I just found out

My wife cheated on me

Monday, August 15, 2016 10:26 AM by Al Rating: +2|-7

Two years ago I drove past a club in key Biscayne Florida called Steffanos.  I was with my 8 year old daughter in the car and as I looks at the signage of the club I remembered an event that had happened there 15 years before. My wife who was my girlfriend at the time was grabbed by a man in the club as we were leaving.  I remember hearing the guy say "look who it is", he grabbed her ass and I didn't get to respond because I was a bit in front and when I went to get the guy I was blocked.  Well I was not a jealous guy so I left it thinking the guy was a drunk.  

       Later that they, I got home and my wife came out and made a comment..like " any thing interesting happened?". So I told her what I remembered... And I saw a very strange look come over her face.  I laughedit off and continued to mess around with my daughter.

   Later that night, the event would not leave my mind because of want I remember the guy saying.  Then I remembered of a thing she had had much earlier were she had been talking to a guy in college. I thought I had put a stop to it and since I was so proud and egotistical I thought It was over and she was back to being my girl...several events occurred that I realized things did nonseem to match up.  And I became totally paranoid and invented a scenario about her and I confronted her...I tikd he that I had pictures that were given to me about her and man in a car while in college.  After many months and fights she admitted that she had cheated on me.  That she had been with a man from sschhol, that she had been having very explicit sexual conversations over the phone.  This conversations lead to oral sex in the guys car for weeks. And she says that that they never had intercourse.  Well needless to say I'm destroyed, the one person I trusted played me the most.  To me it gets worst, one thing is the incredibly sexual relationship she had with that man. Another thing is what has happens the last 2 years of my life.  I asked her to just be honest so I could move on, but she has fought to keep those memoriea  and experiences.  She has blamed me for most every bad event in our relationship, specially the sexual issues.  It got so bad that one day after returning home from a 1 week at the hospital for heart failure. I got her mad and she screamed at the top of her lung how amazing the other guy was..his hot he was and how good in bed she sure he was.   I've been totally been beaten down, she has lied up and down trying to keep me at bay.  She has described the guy as a dud, a pimp, a bamboozeler,boring,gorgeous, tall and rich and the sexually boring, and devious.   But somehow I'm here because I was a great guy.....so why I'm I here?  My 10 year old daughter would be devastated our everyday family life is amazing.  We are wealthy and have incredible lives..so I also stay on because my life would really change.  Also, she has been an amazing partner, until two years ago whenni found all this out....is not about forgiving that will never happen is about how do I cope with the bad when 95% of my life is perfect....I try but when my brain takes off. In rants there's nothing I can do.

  How can you allow  a women to disrespect  you  in such a way. Honesty  is  one thing but to yell at you and hurt you in this matter is pathetic. How is it your fAult she didn't  communicated this to you before. She never gave you a chance to be the great lover. To better yourself and to express  it how much you love her. Fuck  the sex she chose to lie to you easily  with no remorse and only came clean when you pushed. Your mind is constantly  tormenting because logic is telling you the 95% of your happy marriage  is a scam. I don't  want to be a percentage  in my wifes eyes. She needs to be my all like am her all. How many other times has she done this and with out guilt lived life like this is ok. People will tell you  not to destroy  your marriage  because  it's just sex. If it was just sex you wouldn't  have felt the way you do. Sex is intimate  and very personal  and she gave her self to someone  else because you where not " good enough " to ha e a fighting chance. Why stay? Your daughter  needs  a loving father to grow. You don't need to be the husband  of her mother to raise  her right. Go do better for yourself, you deserve  repeat. FUCK YOUR WIFE.

She cheated and lied to you for freaking 30 years and blame you for it.  You know it's more than oral.  Whose to say she is not lying now.  You can't ever trust her again.  She has no remorse for what she did, you need to talk to a lawyer like 2 years ago.

I've been there buddy but in a much different way. I've been married for nearly fifty years and my wife's affair occurred in our first year of marriage, while I was in Germany. For many years, the secret was kept from me by my wife, by the man with whom she was involved, and by some family members. This secrecy was made possible, in large part, by my so obtuse as to not read the signs. I didn't see the truth because, to paraphrase, "I couldn't handle the truth". She even sent me a Dear John letter ("I've met someone. He's real good to talk to and we have a lot of fun together"), for crying out loud, and I managed to convince myself it didn't mean what it seemed to mean. It was a few months later that she joined me in Germany and it was, in my mind, as if there had never been any other relationship in her life. Things were a little strange when she first arrived in Germany because she didn't even want me to touch her and spent a lot of her time staring off itno space. I attributed this to us having been apart for several months and maybe a little homesickness. I now realize she was missing her boyfriend. So, why did she even come over to Germany? Because he had, just like me, been drafted. Uncle Sam broke up the affair. I figured this out, years later when I finally caught on to the fact that the affair had occurred. When I first became aware that the relationship had existed, I thought she had simply ended the affair and chosen to be with me. The realization that he was drafted out from under her changed my perspective a little because it wasn't until he was gone that she decided she wanted to join me in Germany.

Anyway, at the time, I just blundered along, clueless. By the time a couple of years had passed, we were parents and life was pretty idyllic. There was one incident which offered up another clue, which should have enabled anyone with half-a-brain to connect the dots. We were out at a local tavern when my wife was accosted by another woman who accused her of having had sex with her husband, a couple of years previous to this. My wife, denied that any such thing had taken place and I was able to push this information down into my sub-conscience, along with the rest of it. I realize now that I chose to believe the lie because, to paraphrase Jack Nicholson, "I couldn't handle the truth". Think of it; I had now been given the letter, the strange behavior, and verification by a third party. I even now finally had the name of the man who had been screwing my wife while I was gone but I didn't even acknowledge the occurence. It's pretty pitiful when you think about it.

    Things became even more complicated when I had an affair of my own, with a co-worker. This was a brief sexual affair which occurred because I was morally weak at the time. My wife and I were under some strain and I stepped outside the marriage. I have been beating myself up over this for years and, for years, was convinced I was a low life son-of-a-bitch who had cheated on his ever-faithful wife. I still knew no different. I stopped this affair almost as soon as it started and put it behind me although I was ashamed of myself and convinced I deserved any punishment which came my way; and there was plenty of it! I soaked up any abuse which came my way because I deserved it.

The marriage survived though and we had another child. The years passed and life went by until, forty-five years after the fact, I had an epiphany. Holy shit! My wife had been involved with this guy and I had been so stupid that I had never seen it for what it was. She admitted to the affair although she claimed intercourse never took place (although some sort of sexual act did), a claim which is, quite frankly, not credible. She even claimed they were only alone together one time. This claim is even less credible, of course.

     The thing is, none of this should matter. After all, many, many, years have passed and the boyfriend (whom I never did meet) is even dead! To me though, because the realization came so late. it is as if it happened yesterday and I can't shake it. My young wife betrayed me then lied about it for years. Our early marriage was all based on a lie. Her sisters probably knew. One brother-in-law certainly knew (he was the asshole's best friend). I never even met the guy and no one was anxious for me to meet him and he was certainly not interested in meeting me. I have always had a reputaion as a fighter and I think he was simply afraid of what might happen. His wife, (the one who made the accusation against my wife) kept him away from me. The truth is, I was so stupid, I probably wouldn't have cought on anyway so their fears were groundless.

     The ramifications of an affair can be far-reaching. When I think back to our first couple of years, after returning from Germany, I used to think of that time as being pretty idyllic. Now, the knowledge that I was married to a cheater who had been lying to me for the past two years, makes me feel physically ill and I am filled with anger. This in spite of the knowledge that, given my own affair, I haveno right. I belong to a boxing club where I can spar with, and beat on, younger men as a bit of a release. I know my feelings are unreasonable and, intellectually, I know there is no good reason for my anger. Emotionally though, I feel I've been a complete fool and a laughingstock. I struggle to hide my anger and to keep from bringing the affair up to my wife. I'll never know what really happened and am really only rouble the little things. Did she ride around with him in my car? Did she remove her rings when she was screwing around with him? Did they correspond while he was in the Army? Did they ever meet after we returned from Germany?  These are questions for which I'll never have the answers. If I mentioned her affair, she gets very defensive and is able to counter with mine (no secret there. That affair, though very brief, was out in the open; to my real shame.).

    I'm probably going to suffer with this for the rest of my life. I suffer from depression anyway and this is part of it. I feel betrayed and, at the same time, feel as if betrayal is all I deserve. My advice? Find a way to get past it. If your marriage is worth saving, to you, both of you need to work at it. Take care of yourself and work on building your own self exteem and respect. If you have respect for yourself, you will not feel as threatened by the past. In other words, do as I say, not as I do!  HW

Confessions of the Mistress   “Life has taught me that you can’t control someone’s loyalty.  No matter how good you are to them it doesn’t mean that they will treat you the same way.”   It seemed as though my life was spinning out of control.  Too many, it seemed I had it together.  Others knew I was just barely hanging on.  And I was.  I was fighting depression alone, now raising chi..

I had to forgive her because i told her i would.  This was soon after we married, and before our two children. Stacey confided that her previous boyfriends had always accused her of cheating. I said i dont know what the big deal was as long as you stayed together.  Though she said she'd never would it was shortly after our second  child that we had an iud placed to avoid further pregnancies.  I ..
