I'm new to this group. I believe my husband is having an affair. I only believe this because a woman keeps calling me claiming to be his girlfriend. He denies it but having an affair is not out of character for him. Before we married, he told me that he had cheated on his first wife. I believed whole-heartedly that because we loved each other so much that it would be enough. Anyway, now I find myself facing this. To make it worse, I keep thinking that why should I be unhappy when it would be just as easy for me to stray. A man that I am wonderful friends with has been providing me some support, although he doesn't know all the details about my husband. I find myself becoming emotionally attached to him and I'm starting to have thoughts that I know I just can't have. How do I keep my cool during this while I decide if and how to work things out with my husband? I know if I open myself up to this other man that I will never be able to forgive my husband or myself. But, how do you ever forgive someone for cheating on you? Can you ever make the marriage work again? Should you even try?

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
