My wh cheated with prostitutes six years ago. Recently I discovered an ea and pa. We are trying to make it work. He had a very hard time with my anger last time around. He felt like I was always mad at him. I think I was because he never could give me reassurance at the level I needed. Anyway this time around I feel like my part is going to be able to deal with anger better. I can see hiw he would feel that wsy although not admitting that to him. So in that spirit I am wondering if I should not find out details. Maybe it is too painful to heAr. But is that tug sweeping on my part or just self preservation? He will also need to deal with why he has such problems with dealing with my Anger.

I think only you know the answer to this. If you want/need details to heal, but don't ask for them to avoid getting angry, then it's rugsweeping. If you really think you don't need them (there was a whole lot that I didn't ask), then that's perfectly acceptable.

This is about what YOU need to heal.

Poor widdle boobie had a hard time dealing with your anger? So you don't want details because you know they'll make you angry?

Look, I don't want to know details, but that's for my own mental health. And I was plenty angry without details. What I'm very concerned about is the power imbalance that seems to exist in your relationship. Why on earth are you trying to placate him, protect him from your anger? Honey, he should be groveling on his feet in gratitude that you haven't kicked his ass to the door!

He doesn't just need to deal with his problems dealing with your anger, he needs to deal with his PROBLEM, which is CHEATING.

I'm sorry, I'm probably projecting my anger here a bit. But please, please stop worrying about your how your anger affects the little precious, and start thinking about getting your bitch boots on getting widdle precious to man up.
