My wife had an affair with my best friend
November 10, 2011
3 years ago my wife decided to give up work and start a full-time degree course, so I agreed to it and gave up the job I loved to take one with a reasonable salary so I could support her and the household.
Last xmas she told me she wanted a divorce and it was going to be amicable, said she’d met someone in Uni and he made her happier than I ever could so I agreed. A few weeks later I noticed my wage slips were on the desk next to the PC and I got curious about what she was doing with them so I logged on and launched the browser to check the history…..what I found made the bottom drop out of my world…..explicit e-mails detailing exactly what she’d been up to. Turned out that for the past year she has been sleeping with my oldest ‘friend’.
Since that revelation the whole business of divorce has turned nasty, she’s deliberately avoiding getting a job so she pays virtually no CSA while I pay 15% of my wage to her (custody of 1 child each) and every time she sees my son she spends all her time telling him what a waste of space I am and that I blame the children for the divorce, luckily he’s old enough to see through her lies and ignores her but it’s depressing him so much he’s reluctant to spend time with her now, especially since she let it slip that she’d be a lot better off financially if he went to live with her. I get to see my daughter regularly when my ex does her night-school classes and we have a great time together, it seems my ex’s new partner is shouting at my daughter for the least thing and there’s nothing I can do about it.
I wish it was all settled and the marital home was sold (she’s after 75% of the equity!) so I could get on with the rest of my life in peace.
