July 28, 2012 – I Cheated On My Husband While Drunk. My Husband Is Hurting. What Should I Do?
Myself and my husband have been married for 4 years now. We have a beautiful son together. I recently made the worst mistake of my life by sleeping with my co-worker after getting drunk at an occasion.
I confessed this mishap to my husband. It seems we can’t get back to where we’re before what happened.
Please believe me when I say that I love my husband with all my heart. I attended a company function a few months ago, got drunk and had sex with a man I work with. I think my drink was spiked, but I have no proof.
When I realised the next day what I had done, I was devastated. I thought long and hard and decided that the only way I would be able to live with this is if I told my husband.
My husband was angry, hurt and so disappointed. He left me for a month and when he came back, he said he wanted to try and make the marriage work because he still loved me and wanted the best for our child.
We never spoke about what had happened, which has proved to be unbelievably difficult. We just cannot get back to where we were before this happened. He is suspicious of me all the time. He wants to know where I am, what time I will be home and who I am with.
I have assured him that nothing like that would ever happen again. Though I understand how he must feel, it is really starting to wear me down.
Sometimes when he looks at me I feel as if he hates me. He also will not touch me. What can I do to reassure him that I love him and our child more than anything in the world? Will we ever get over this?
I’m really sad. What should I do?
