I have been married for 35 years. I have known about my same sex attraction for most of my life, but denied it. About 10 years ago, I had an affair with a younger man when I was depressed. When I refused to leave my wife, he went away. About 3 years ago, I met another younger man where friendship lead to a relationship. We believe we are in love. I confessed this to my wife during a marriage counseling session 3 weeks ago and she has asked for a divorce. I want to love my wife completely and fully as in our early years, but am afraid I would cheat again. I have been in therapy and understand the reasons for the same sex attraction, but it is still there. I know I am the scum of the earth for hurting the one I love so much, especially it being homosexual. For now, I am alone, deservedly so. How do you love your spouse so much yet cant help but cause her such unbelievable pain. Thoughts?
