I just found out about my husband’s secret earlier this week.
I am emotionally drained, but I am hoping that by sharing my story, I will feel at least a little better.
I stupidly believed, as I genuinely thought that this man had the heart of a saint – warm, kind, just a dream, really.
He spoils me in every way and I love him very much. Then earlier this week I was on the computer again and his work email was up. 99.9% was work, but there was 3 email exchanges that he had had with a brief girlfriend back in the states that I opened – he had just written them day before. She had originally contacted him, asking him how he was.
The important thing is that you find someone who meets your needs.
If that person happens to be an addict in recovery, understand the unique challenges and be ready to meet them. Take some time to review Drug and learn about your treatment options.
It could be the real deal, or it could end up being a nightmare relationship.
The first thing you should know about dating an addict is that he is, in fact, an addict.
I confronted him right away on the phone and he was hysterical and apologized and begged me to stay.Well, to say that I have just found out about it is wrong.I found out about it 3 years ago, and now the Sex Addiction has reared it’s ugly head. About 2 years ago, I moved to his home country with him and now we are married, no kids, a house and 2 great jobs. I would say that I am attractive, smart and successful myself.Addiction is a lifelong disease and even if he has been sober for years, a relapse is always possible.Also know that love does not conquer all, especially real world problems like addiction.
