I’m a grown man with a family of my own and everything seems fine from the perception of everyone I know; neighbours and other extended families but deep down, I’m locked down in the abyss of loneliness. I love my kids but I cannot let them know that their dad is not the same anymore. Nothing hurts more than keeping a poker face right in your home.
I am a man with principles and this led to me making vows that I have sworn to keep till death. So you can imagine the sadness I felt when I realized that my wife was unfaithful. Funny thing is that I’m not the jealous type to snoop around and stalk my partner.
Recently I cancelled a trip half way through that was supposed to take two weeks. I got home just in time to see a man dropping off my wife. Yet, I wasn’t too alarmed till they shared a goodbye passionate kiss. I did confront my wife and we had everything sorted after much pleading. But to be truthful, since then nothing has ever been the same. My feelings for her have totally died, and I’m considering divorce but I do not want my kids to experience a broken home.
Nevertheless, I am engulfed by misery and loneliness and my days are just filled with darkness. It’s only the thought of my kids that keeps me going but I just can’t continue with this marriage. What do you think is the best way to go guys?
