Wow, sounds like WW really will benefit from long-term IC. She must have some huge self-image issues to deal with. I hope she does so you don't feel like you have to.

I can't see why BS would stay in a marriage feeling this way. Either heal or bail, life's too short for anything else...

There is a list of common abbreviations somewhere.

POSOM = Piece of **** Other Man
OM = Other Man
OW = Other Woman

Two things would make me weary and not stay in the marriage.

Firstly ....she lied about who he was. (And she met up with him even though you were against it)

Secondly ... he ended it and she was the one begging to keep it going.

The trust required would cause ongoing problems and I'd feel like she was just faithful by circumstance and not choice.

should you stay or go? hard to tell.


If i were to guess from the limited data, and your physical description of the other man....i would guess there is something seriously missing in her sex life that this guy provided. you mention S&M...maybe he is a Dom and very skilled in S&M sex moves. Maybe she NEEDS this. Maybe she was into S&M before you met her, knew this guy as being skilled, and then lost track of him.


She meets you, sizes you up as being "vanilla" in the sex department, and puts on a persona of being a vanilla loving wife. But, having tasted that wicked fruit, was really missing it all the time you were married. Then this old Dom shows up, and she got instantly horny and had to see him.


If my guess about all this is true...then her just going no contact on this one guy is NOT going to fix anything. She tried to lead a vanilla sex life, and it just did not work for her. She had to cheat to bring it back. She may be able to go a while without the S&M sex, maybe even years, but eventually the desire will overpower her again


So unless you either can become more alpha and be her Dom, Or unless you are willing to let her be "married, but owned by someone else"....well it does not look all that good.


BTW, her vanilla loving wifely faccade for you might have been the "madonna/whore" syndrome. That is how she was able to do the things she did.


one trivia fact that might be of use...there IS such a thing as a non-sexual Dom. i.e. he is dominant, and owns her when they are together, but the clothes stay on. It is more related to her service, or his tying her (while clothed) up with rope, etc.

I feel I can take my time and see how I feel over the next few months.
40SG

Here's some evidence of following a gut instinct (when you're a BS) that you're not EVER gonna get the full story, if you need it, from your WS.

It's AMAZING just how MUCH information the AP is willing to throw up. I don't care what the APs motivation IS, I just want information about the person I was MARRIED to.

I can just imagine the shock of the OM in your case, 40.
The OWs over here too lol.
As my friend said "It'd be quite comical if it wasn't so sad". When the sadness begins to subside, a BS realizes that they're all just a bunch of clowns ruining people's lives with their somersaults. I choose to leave their 3 ringed circus. They can do whatever they choose WITHOUT me as a spectator. :-)

Mr. Lucky
I think 40SG is out. But for the kids. Honourable to a point... the kids DO NEED 1 good parent.

For some BSs who thought their M was a forever thing, we hang in there for a long a***d while. I can kinda see 40 going through a similar process to me. Boiling points along the way, disgust in the FORM of the AP, simmering at times, counselling giving the opportunity for a middle finger at the WS, seeing a spike in attention from the WS but knowing it's fake.

Then REALIZING a better person would see who we are.
KNOWING there are way better people out there to partner off with.
Resenting the WS and all the crap they did to us during their A.

Then simmering.
Not really caring one way or the other whether the M survives at all.

Then the COOLEST feeling of all. DETACHMENT.

I got to the point where I couldn't care less whether WH was happy or sad. Suffering or inert. Dead or alive. I was done when I was done and I KNEW THAT MOMENT. But it was a very long time coming and the process is what I've outlined above.

I have zero respect for exWH. I only follow the law in respect to WH. Nothing more. ICY COLD. NC except when necessary.

Except for possible future charges to lay and making him responsible for the children. He is dead to me. (And paying for his own funeral now).

Happy days.

Just in addition to #39.....

I felt this way too.

You KNOW IT BUDDY!!!! YOU ARE WORTH WAAAAAY more than this.

But to dwell on the revenge thing a while. Sure! I TOTALLY GET THAT. Felt the same way and actually did nothing lol.

UNTIL WW has your heart, capacity for love and commitment, she'll never feel the depth of anything you've felt.

After a while you'll give up that thought BUT DO FOCUS ONLY on yourself!!!!!! And your kids.

The 180 tells us this and MAN IT WORKS!!!
For me it worked to put MYSELF together and eventually not give a crap about WH whining.

When you've got a gut full of the information. You HAVE TO concentrate on YOURSELF.

There ARE so many gorgeous women out there. Let WW have her next fat MM. Who cares. At least you won't be paying for her next A.

When I read here that THE BEST REVENGE IS TO LIVE A GOOD LIFE I thought nah. I want ALOT MORE THAN that. I wanted vengeance lol.

But I gave up caring. Focussed on me. What I WANTED in my future. I wrote my LIST of my next partner. Etcetera.

The relationship I have now is like comparing a supermodel with a draining leech on my arm. It's that stark the difference. I had another M proposal this year too. And too many offers of dates etc. I was already taken lol.

Don't let WWs CHOICES of sex partner EVER influence YOUR opinion of yourself. She was with something at her own level. Remember that.

So having a GOOD life as the best revenge is true.
While I fly out to meet my gorgeous bf again, WH can't afford gas to drive 20m to see his kids.
While we have 2 homes in different countries, WH lives in someone else's back yard.
While he gets dropt like hotcakes once his new fling finds out he was a serial cheater to his W and 3 kids, I have a faithful man and I'm his faithful lady.

So having a Fairy Tale love affair all over the world sure beats BEING kept in these 4 walls working 24/7 for an unremorseful cheat. HANDS DOWN.

Once you realize you DON'T HAVE TO STAY with an unfaithful spouse and do get out, the world is your oyster.

It's lovely!

I did get to mind f*** the OM and literally had him tell me that he's my b****. And I have treated him that way. Told him so long as I get 100% truth and many questions I ask I know the answer to and others I don't so they all better be truthful. Basically, he has offered up stuff I didn't even ask about.


As far as WS goes, she really has nothing but the kids without me. She has no family to speak of anymore and has acknowledged she knows she would be alone without me. While this is NO EXCUSE at all for her actions, she was going thru a time where she had some major changes in her job that begun to depress her, some issues with our son, and basically was getting depressed- mid life crisis like. Then, by pure chance (and yes I know this was a chance occurance that went wrong) she runs into him and those feelings of the day when they could be kids/young adults without responsibility overwhelmed her. She did not pursue since she wasn't sure if he was happily married but when he indicated to her direct that he was attracted to her still and was not happily married himself, it was too much for her. Up until this time, we had a very good marriage and that is what kills me. Sure we had life circumstances that were not fun that we endured, but we did have a good marriage. I never would have ever dreamed that she would risk this. I know from her texts and from him that she made it clear that she didn't want to do anything to risk what her and I had (translate I CANT GET CAUGHT) but she really thought she could get a distraction from reality and never really considered the end game and got to see her greatest fear- a really hurt me. I do know my struggles to get over this hurts her. I know she said many times how this A was not worth it. Right now I am just going to worry about me and decide when I am ready what my best options are. I already told her moving this spring is 100%. Either we stay together and move or I leave her and we have to move by selling the house and splitting it. Whatever route I take, I know I will not have to live so close to that walking lard arse.

I'm sorry but this had me lmfao

OP take your time in deciding what to do. You are most likely in the anger phase. I went absolutely nutso so I get it.

You may be closer to some of the problem with this post. The OM is kinky over texts. He texted her one night a 'story' about basically breaking into our house, her coming downstairs to investigate the noise, him grabbing her and telling her to be quiet where he then tied her up, put her underwear in her mouth as a gag and then went down on her. He described in his story how she tastes etc and then he stopped the story. She, of course, wanted to know how it ended up and he made her send vagina pics to finish the story which she did. Basically he screwed her in the story in our home with me sleeping upstairs. When I confronted him he told me the story he told her. Imagine how she felt when I confronted her with this? She knew he was talking like crazy and it humiliated her.


A month later I went to the store and got a beginners S&M kit and we went away out of town. At the hotel, I cuffed her, blind folded her, ball gagged her, and whipped her on the butt amongst other things. She has always liked me spanking her arse hard during sex (always been that way) and I do think she likes to bee dominated. Of course, as I said somewhere earlier in this thread, she was a sexual abuse victim as a child. But when I did ask her right after D DAY what unmet need am I not providing she said, 'you can't provide it as you are not taboo.' I wonder if monogamy is something she is having a hard time with given how she was before me and I know being faithful is what she wants. I think I am going to have a talk where I tell her that we need to get away and be very kinky with each other- even have part of our date night at a sex toy shop to see what we can do.

I may be a bit more controlling but from the start, no way my wife goes to lunch with another man. That wouldn't fly with me.


I would have to be 1000% sure my wife didn't have sex or anything even close for me to consider reconciling. With what your wife was texting i'd have trouble they didn't do anything more than jr. high boy-girl stuff.


If I were in your shoes and early 40s and in good shape like you said I'd be jumping at the chance of the single life again.
