A WOMAN has shared her heartbreak after discovering her husband and the father of her children was living a completely different life.
The devastated lady, who has three children with the man she thought was the love of her life, said she was “broken” by his cheating and lies.
Taking to Reddit in an anonymous post, she opened up about his betrayal and how she’s been coping since the blow.
She explained: “My husband has a second family. The ultimate cliche has happened in my life and I am absolutely broken.
“My husband, my rock, was in an affair for over 17 years. We have been married for 25 years.
“We have three wonderful children, two are in college and one still lives at home, but it turns out he’s had a different set all this time.”
The woman then shared more details as she revealed that her significant other is an insurance broker and therefore travels a lot for work, spending one week at home and one week off.
However, it has now emerged that on his ‘week off’ he was playing Happy Families with his fiancee and two teenage children.
She then revealed how social media helped her discover his infidelity after she decided to create a Facebook account.
She explained: “When I searched for my husband’s name, another profile popped up with a different surname, through this profile there were links to his fiancee and other children.
“My husband is with said family right now and I know it’s him because his last post is a photo of him and that other family having dinner.
“Among these photos were photos of him kissing a girl and being fatherly to children who look almost identical to my husband.”
The anonymous woman then said she doesn’t know how she’s going to face him, but “almost every part” of her “wants to scream in his face and tell him off for ruining” her life.
However, she also admitted that “her heart is in ruins” and that another part of her wants to pretend she never saw it so as not to disturb their “peaceful” married life.
My husband, my rock, has been in an affair for over 17 years.
She concluded: “I don’t know what to do anymore. I cannot be in the house where we raise our children, where we have spent every Christmas for the past 26 years.
“And where I was alone on New Year’s, taking care of our children while he was “working”. I just can’t.
“I also want to leave him a note, hurt him like he hurt me, but I don’t think it’s possible.
“I don’t know how I’ll ever meet him again.”
