I just found out my husband got another woman pregnant and I’m relieved.
I can’t even believe I’m typing this out right now, but I just found out my husband got his “fling” pregnant and there is a big part of me that is glad to hear the news.
We have had a problematic relationship for a while, but our problems really started a month ago. I found out that he was talking to a female coworker and hiding it from me so when I confronted him, it originally was said to be a “little crush” that snowballed into us agreeing to take a break because we both needed time.
After establishing the break, I then find out that he actually slept with her but it was “only one time while I was drunk”.
Fast forward to now, where I find out that it was multiple times, everyone at his job knows about it and knew about it prior to the first issue so I’ve been left looking like a fool, and now she’s pregnant with what they think is his child.
I’ve known I wanted a divorce for a while because although I have my issues, his are much worse. And even through the rest of the bullshit I was thinking that we should give it one more try, go to counseling, do whatever we could to save the marriage.
But after this, I know that this needs to end now. And although I’m hurt by what he’s put me through this month, and quite frankly the majority of our relationship, I feel like a giant elephant has stepped off of my shoulders because now I know without a shadow of a doubt that this is going to END.
I will be by myself(besides our kid) but I will be free and happy, I won’t be anxious wondering what the mood is today and what I can say and do.
And if me chewing to loudly will send him into a rage. I can breath, and I would rather be struggling financially but feel at peace than be able to stay home and constantly be anxious.
He’s always going to be my best friend, and once we get through the divorce I’m excited to get to where we can just be really good friends and coparents together, but I never want to have to live in the same house as him again. And congratulations to both of them on the new baby
