How many folks have done this during a marriage crisis? Is this helpful? Is it more harmful? I am just trying to find grounding for myself so that I don't go insane. I have work, school and a life to lead from myself. Life doesn't stop because of all of this.

I never knew who it was. It was a very traumatic experience and I kept it all to myself for 3 years (but...
