Cheating is Not worth it
I saw a post on here about cheating and I want to share my story with you.
I married my wife when we were in our early twenties. We bought a nice house, went on vacations and both had good jobs. We had two kids close together. When my kids were really young I started to get upset that my wife didn’t seem to have as much time for me, less sex, less date nights. She was falling asleep in my son’s bed most nights to settle him down. She wasn’t dressing like she used to. About this time a buddy of mine left his wife and three kids and got an apartment. I went to visit him and thought he was living the life. Going out to the bars, dating girls a lot younger than him. I thought he had it made. I met a girl at his apartment one night and we started to talk by text and Facebook and the it turned physical. I thought I deserved this because my wife wasn’t paying enough attention to me. I decided to leave my wife and really let her have it when I left. I told her she let herself go and said some really awful things to make it seem like she swerved me leaving. Boy was I wrong. I moved into a one bedroom piece of crap apartment and had to stay there for years because of the financial mess I put my family in. I realized the woman I was having the affair with was not someone I wanted to spend my life with pretty quickly. After a few months I begged my wife to take me back but she refused. I would have given anything to go back to my beautiful house and get in bed at night with her next to me in her jogging pants and sweatshirt that I made her feel bad about wearing. She was working full time and taking care of our kids so well and all I could think about was myself. I lost my wife, her family who was amazing and they now despise me. My relationship with my parents and sister is not the same. My grandmother will barely even look at me at family functions. We lost so much money and savings because I am an idiot. She is now with another guy and I look at her Facebook and know that could be me in those pictures he gets to live my life.
Guys it is not worth it. Especially if you have young kids keep going and make it work. The grass is not greener on the other side it is brown and rotten. Also the guy who I thought had it made went back to his wife after about six months of living it up because he realized what a loser he was being. He said the bars and everything were fun for a couple of months but he realized his mistake and was lucky enough to be taken back. My kids have suffered so much because of my actions. I would do anything to take it back. It wasn’t worth it at all.
