Infidelity is an easy no for me.

You’re not even married yet and he’s cheating? You can do better. Good luck.

Snap chat conversations are like almost immediately deleted so how did you find convos on snap?

regardless this would be a hard no for me, especially the transgender part. I’d always be wondering and questioning if he was truly attracted to me.

Cheating is a deal breaker for me. I would be looking to move past this on my own. Not with him.

That’s a no from me. I always have to lol when someone’s caught doing something and they claim “it’s not really who they are.” Like uh yeah it is. He’s a cheater. Thank you, next.

I think there are so many variables. What is your definition of cheating? Have the two of you shared your definitions so you both understand what the other considers cheating? Was he  having a sex conversation or was there intent to meet at some point? Some people consider phone sex, or texts to be a type of porn, not infidelity. Some don’t.

It’s a fetish he doesn’t like but he’s partaking in it anyway? I’d say he does like it but is struggling to come to terms with not only admitting to an interest in something he maybe never thought he’d be interested in, but also coming to terms with the fact that he’s cheating on you. He’s willing to risk your relationship for a fetish he doesn’t like. That doesn’t make a lot of sense. Don’t marry this guy. Especially if it’s become a physical affair. I know emotional can be just as bad but if he’s become initimate with another person on top of the conversations, he’s gone way past the point of no return.

If he were single, there is nothing wrong with his fetish, and he could be free to explore it as much as he liked. To each his own. However, he’s not single, and made a commitment to you. He likes what he likes, and I don’t forsee a sex therapist “curing” him. This is a really harsh comparison, but I’ll use it to make a point about humans and sexual desire: would you let a pedophile who was “cured” by sex therapy babysit your children? Probably not. If your fiancé dated men before you, wouldn’t you always wonder if he still found men attractive, and if he still had desires to be with a man? Of course a person can control acting out sexual desires, but the sexual attraction will always be there.

I don’t think you can or should try to get past this. It’s only a waste of your time. Leave him while you’re not tied down to him legally and never look back

Sorry but I would leave. You can’t change him. If this is detrimental  to your self esteem, relationship and future… I would cut my losses. Beyond the fetish, he’s fishing elsewhere.

I would take the transgender/sexual identity bit out of the equation for a moment. If he’d been cheating on you for a year with a cis girl, how would you feel? Would you be open to working on it? 

The transgender/fetish thing is obviously a big deal, though there are couples who have gotten through this. But it’s not a good sign that he didn’t tell you himself about all this – you just happened to find the evidence on his phone. I feel like if there is even a shred of hope of getting through this type of thing, there would need to be complete trust and total honesty between partners, which you don’t have with this guy.

It’s up to you if you want to work on it with him in counseling. Personally I don’t think i could ever get past infidelity of any kind, and I don’t think I could be with someone who was questioning his sexual identity. But only you know what your limits are.

julies1949 :  This! OP you need to figure out why exactly he felt the need to do this. What did he get out of it?? Was he actually intending to meet up with them or not? Was it emotional or just a sex thing? I wouldn’t marry the guy until you get to the bottom of this. Also it’s not so much the behavior that bothers me, but it’s the fact that he hid this from you that’s kind of fucked up. I’m sorry you are having to deal with this.
