My brother and his wife just separated after almost 6 years of marriage. They have two beautiful children together. However, I just found out she has been seeing another man for the past YEAR! (a mutual friend between the two if I might add) which is what lead to the separation.
I applaud my brothers optimism, he still wants to live under the same roof, and insists on winning her back; “it’s for the kids” he says. But to me, I think that’s complete madness! The kids are going to start to wonder why daddy’s sleeping on the couch, and where is mommy? Why is mommy never with daddy? And who’s this strange man with mommy? The kids are only 5 & 7; young, but old enough to see there’s “something” going on. If it were me in this situation I would kick my husband out, and never want to see him again – unless necessary.
Am I out of line to be so upset? What kind of advice can I give my brother? R in Waterloo
