I'm sorry about what you have suffered and there are two ways you can choose now. First, if you still love him and want to maintain the marriage, then talk to him and know about his thoughts. Try to find out your problems and work it out. However, if he doesn't want to admit his fault and you cannot stand this kind of thing. Maybe the best way is to divorce. Best wishes!
Answered by ABC from AUSTRALIA | Oct. 15, 2018 07:23

Thank you but I also wanted to know if I stay with him, will my marriage be the same as it was before? Hence, was looking for an answer
Answered by ABC from AUSTRALIA | Oct. 15, 2018 07:26

He wouldn’t admit his mistakes at all and is physically abusive too. The woman he was cheating with knows everything and still encouraged him to start a relationship as she was sending him emails and letters.
Answered by Jerry from BELGIUM | Oct. 15, 2018 18:01

Well, then you should be careful about that since there may be a great possibility for you to start an unhappy life if you continue to stay with him. On the other hand, you need to talk to your friends and get some support and advice from them. Think about it carefully and then make a final decision. Good luck!
