    It would be a moot point, because he wouldn’t be my husband anymore.

    @KatyElle:  +1. He could continue fraternizing her all he wanted, because I wouldn’t be in the picture. Or he’d be dead.

    IF we stayed married, there would be NO contact. The nerve of that man!

    I very shamefully was once the other woman, and the man and his wife were insistent that we all remain friends. They kept screaming at me about how immature I was to not want any further contact. It was so very odd – I understand his motivation but will never get hers. I had to threaten them with restraining orders 18 months after it ended – they wouldn’t stop contacting me to be friends.

    So no, I don’t think that a friendship post-affair is reasonable.

    What did Abby say?  In my case, without knowing any other details…. it’s divorce time.  I also wouldn’t stand for any continued contact with the other woman if for some reason we stayed together.

    What?! What day was this? What did Abby say? What an asshole. I can’t imagine seeking advice if I were the wife. It would be one thing staying with him because he was remorseful and begging for forgiveness and deeply ashamed. But he seems like he doesn’t see anything wrong with what he did!

    I voted to end all contact but I would seriously consider a divorce.  Gosh, he is so lucky nobody cut any body part off!  The neighbor’s husband and the wife are too good if everyone is still considering being friends with each other!

    That man would be looking for a place to stay … if he was still alive

    It’ll be a divorce for me.  It is one thing to have an affair with some fling but to have an affair with a neighbor/friend, makes a bad situation 10x worse.  Seeing her face/house/car/etc will be a constant reminder of how blinded I was to all of this.  UGH.
