I continued the relationship with the OM, we both kept it from our significant...
For those Cheaters who are sincerely trying to recover and be faithful, I need some support. I found out my husband was having an affiar in December. I truly feel the only way I can understand when he says, "I Don't know what I was feeling" "It wasn't as deep as you think" "It wasn't like I didn't love you while I was doing it" etc. ..is to experience an affiar myself.
