    On a purely practical level, Erin, you better duck for cover - at least for now - and pray the wife doesn't know you so you don't find yourself in court in the midst of someone else's mess.

    And I don't mean to sound cruel, but the fact he hasn't contacted you seems to be a pretty loud and clear message that he doesn't want or need your support to get through this. You can look at it this way, at least you didn't have that much time invested in the relationship.

    And no shame on you. We're all human and sometimes the rules get broken.

    Spoken from a wise man and the words are so true.....I've had to learn this the hard way myself, and I know it's hard to turn your back on someone you may really like and thought they felt the same....but,you deserve to be treated with respect, no matter what....if someone cannot fully appreciate you and give you the courtesy of at least a phone call to make sure you know what's going on, move on.

    There's been much talk about firemen around here...I think I need to go cool off now.

    Erin, only you know what the right decision is to make with your life. However, I thought you would be interested in the hard numbers behind situations like yours to help you make an educated decision.

    *60% Of men will have an affair at some point in their marriage
    *70-80% of those men will stay in their marriage, even if they attempt to leave several times
    *Less than 20% of relationships born in adultery will last a year after the end of the marriages
    *Of those that marry the person they committed adultery with, 75% of THOSE marriages will end in divorce within a year

    Every situation is different. Good luck with the choices you make.

    That's interesting SG, where did those statistics come from?

    I am actually enjoying reading everyone's outlook on relationships in general. The difficult thing is that, like others have said, 1) every situation is different, 2)only you can decide what is right for you and... sadly... 3)even when you know what is right for you, your heart doesn't always cooperate with your brain. Sigh...

    Erin, I hope the sitauation works out for the best, whatever that is. Just remember that you deserve a good partner and don't let yourself be taken advantage of.

    Apparently not, Unk. You type it in and get a listing for gay porn.

    No thanks.
    I went to manhaters and my computer crashed. Do you think they knew it was a man? Do I have a virus now? Am I too paranoid?
