Ok, so you "dated" a married man (but he said you were just friends even though you met on a dating site) and did the thing with him. By now you should realize this is going nowhere.

That was his FIRST daughter. What about the others?

Would he believe her if she denied it?

I had a friend whose parents stayed together just for the sake of the kid (my friend). It did a real number on him and it took a lot of counseling for him to come to terms with it.

He wants to date Elizabeth?

He imposed that sentence on all of his family

I agree that the wife gets some credit here. I feel sorry for her.

At this point, it doesn't really matter if she had the affair. You are not attracted to her and you are not happy in the marriage. Get out of the marriage without brining up ancient history which migh more »

Just explain to your family that this is nothing serious, it's only because the sex is great. more »

I agree that the problem is your family's expectations, and it's your job to manage that. I am surprised that you've not introduced a good number of guys since I assume you have been dating for years. more »

It is not all that uncommon for people to develop close ties with their therapist. Remember that you don't really know him. Yes, he was kind and respectful and caring. But he was also at work when he more »

Well, you could try to get your name on the lease of his place, making it yours. But given your track record (and your anxiety), I think you should hold off on the move. Yes, even if the lease is up ! more »

I don't think the problem is the age difference, but the way you both seem to look at the age difference. " giving her experience" and wanting her to overcome being in a broken home suggests that you more »

He's moving and he would like to have someone available in the new location. That's not a good reason to get back together. Get him (back) out of your life. more »

It's been six months. Relax. I suspect that you are moving too fast for her and I can see why she might want to back off a bit. Give it time. more »

Comment on: Rethinking the divorce
Posted 04/11/2014 09:08:53 EDT
I do not believe that people change in any fundamental way, so your marriage would go back just to the way it was. You are right to get a divorce, but it's natural to have second thoughts on do some g more »
