just read through it all, and i think you made the right choice. by giving him a date and time you’re laying down the limits, and letting him know that what he was doing is not okay in your relationship.
definately keep us updated. this must be really hard after being together for so long…

My heart goes out to you @sexisammy4u! I think your feelings and concerns are 100% valid, and you have taken the very mature approach to handle this situation. I don’t think that making him go to a couple’s therapist is harsh at all! I think that it shows that you are deeply in love with him and that you will do whatever it takes to try to make this situation right. Hopefully he will put the same dedication into you two’s relationship. Let us know how therapy goes.

I was reading your last update and I am glad to hear you are taking things step by step and in a way that is comfortable to and respectful of your feelings. I had to check back on this thread because I kept thinking about you. I know that if you follow your gut instincts and stay true to your spirit, you will have the outcome that is healthiest and best.

not too harsh at all! Very forgiving on your end. Hopefully he will go in with a better attitude than when it was just you and him talking about it.
I am so sorry you are going through this. I went through a similar situation with my very serious college bf. When it happend 3 times with nothing changing, i kicked him to the curb.
I really hope that the therapist will help your relationship. Stay strong!

I think that it is great that you confronted him and then after cooling off found a counselor that you both can meet with. Telling him if he wants to fix the relationship he will show up to the appointment is, in my opinion, a great way of putting the ball in his court and letting him decide if he wants to continue on his path or on a path with both of you together. Finding one that is also a sex therapist will benefit both of you in the long run. Good luck and I hope he shows up!!!!

NOT TOO HARSH! perfect. some of us would have tourched his clothes…so go you. you might actually make this work out. Good luck.

Oh, my, GOSH. I can’t even imagine how hurt I’d feel if I’d caught the man I’m set to marry doing something like that. It doesn’t matter if it isn’t physical; the fact that he can sit there and engage in something like that free of guilt and behind my back would kill me. Plus, how do you know he doesn’t have an emotional connection with this girl? An emotional affair can be worse than a physical one. And I’d worry that he’d turn to cyber sex after we got married too.
Please, confront him, and go with what you think is best for YOU, okay? I’m so sorry that this happened. If you’re feeling bad about this, don’t let anyone convince you to feel otherwise; this is your life, your relationship, and your marriage. It will not go away unless you confront him about it, and soon.
Take care, and God bless you love.
ETA: I scrolled up after I posted, and I saw your update! NO, that was a BRILLIANT move girl. Let us know how it goes, okay? Maybe he can get help and you two can work this out. And if not, therapy can help you both in other ways, for the better. Good luck to you, and be proud of yourself, because you’re handling this beautifully. As coffeekitty said, lol, I would have DEFINITELY torched his clothes, or maybe tossed his computer out the window.

what was his response when you handed him the business card of the therapist? was he receptive or did he still act like you were making a big deal out of nothing?
Post # 149
how did he react? how are you doing? let us know, please update!

Shit, I can’t believe he fobbed you off like that. You should start dating men at restaurants then see how he likes it. If he says anything say “I’m just eating, I’ve been doing it for years”.
Post # 151
what??!! i can’t believe he said all those things to you. that’s horrible. i don’t think you are being too harsh at all. this is completely serious, and if it is not addressed and you decide to stay with him , things could get really ugly, as other posters have said, and i too think he would probably physically cheat on you years down the road. you be strong and DON’T let him tell you it’s not a big deal!!!
you deserve so much better than that…
