I'm wondering if other BS knew something was going on and offered to their WS an opportunity to confess?

I did. I found the text and told him that we should tell each other uncomfortable things, that after I did what I did, we can't afford not to be truthful with each other.
That night I cried and slept on the couch, he came down and wrapped me in his arms and begged me to come to bed, telling me nothing was going on...

He came home that night and told me that he had taken her number out of his phone (natch, he just changed her name to Dennis) but I had done research all day long, found out who she was, and found out how to read deleted texts on a Blackberry.... and confronted him that night.

what a coward. Sorry, just angry I guess....

I gave my xww a chance to confess. She dug in hard on her denials. I ended up having to do more digging to find out the extent of the A's. I still don't know the whole story, but I knew enough to make my decision.

For the entirety of WH's TT, I had attempted to create a "safe" environment for him to fess up and tell me the whole truth. I knew he was still lying because A LOT of the things he said, didn't add up. For the entirety of his TT, he lead me on a wild goose chase like you wouldn't believe and ruined a number of pre-A places that were special hallmarks of our relationship, places that he didn't even care to remember because he was TT'ing so badly.

I gave him chance after chance, but in the end, I discovered EVERY SINGLE THING, and people wonder why I have anger at him? Yeah, the memory of my dead bishop is almost ruined because he claimed that a house right IN my old Bishop's neighborhood was the house where he screwed her. Come to find out, it wasn't near it at all and he just wanted to drive us around because he was terrified I was going to get out of the car and set her house on fire. Nope, I was just curious as to where the sexcapades took place.

I wanted to know A LOT of things that I mentally, physically and emotionally prepared myself for and to listen to, calmed myself down many a-time to make sure that he didn't feel threatened telling me the truth, and YEP! He still lied to me.

He regrets it now, but screw it all if he can change that either. It was bad enough WH screwed her and carried on an EA, then he had to continue lying about it, and in so destructive of a fashion?

Yes..more than once. When I suspected an A, I asked him if he was having one. I told him I felt the distance, I offered to go to mc..he called me insecure and paranoid. Another time I asked him if he was seeing ow (by name) he laughed at my choice of woman..said if he was going to trade, he would trade up not down, acted insulted I said her name but he was cocky as f**k when he said it. I even told him that I knew we had been through so much drama/trauma and I understood if he may have slipped up. Again...he said nope, no way. Such a wuss.

I told my H that I "knew" what was going on and that I wanted him to tell me about it. I had no solid proof, but I knew.

He spilled everything.

I told my WW that I was worried about her Internet history about 4 months before I found out the real truth. I review it on our computers since I have kids. She blew me of like saying she liked to read other people's stories. Turns out, she was learning how to hide her A.

Over and over for four years.

Yep you know my story, I found the texts and WH gave me the 'just friends' speech even after I disclosed my RA to him he held his lips tight. I found out most of the A details on my own and any detail he has given me is questionable in my eyes.

I begged him for the truth, told him I could handle anything he had to say. Instead, I was fed half truths or just enough to keep me happy in the moment. Unfortunately, this has set us back to square one, on more than one occasion, most recently being last week. I don't know if I am strong enough to keep going.

Yes. I gave him many opportunities, I had to get the details myself. The "confession" was full of lies and even then it was forced.

I asked my W if she was having an A 3 or 4 times during her A. She always denied it.

The conversation that got the confession was right after she freaked out during sex play:

me: Is there something I should know?
her (after what seemed like a long delay): I don't know.
me: What does that mean for us?
her: ...I've been having sex with....

Of course, she might not have been lying when she denied an A, because in her mind at that time, it wasn't a common A, it was something much bigger and much more important that anything as sordid as an A.... (note to self: add this to 'dumb things WSes think and say')

Also, that's the only time I ever said anything soap-opera-ish! I swear! Well, I hope....

on vacation, I told my WH that I thought he was seeing someone else and asked him to tell the truth. He said, "I don't want to discuss this".

months later when I asked him about this response at the time he explained that he wanted me to "be able to relax around the pool".

um..... sure.

Yes, about 10 days before D-day I told fWS that it seemed she was closer to her "friend" than me.

She said "well,, that sounds like a personal problem" and totally blew me off.

Eight months post d-day she used that phrase with me again about something unrelated. And. She. Will. Never. Use. That. Phrase. Again. Or she won't live to tell about it anyway!

Ostrich80 posted 8/28/2013 02:10 AM

Lol purpleJ..there's a popular phrase from a movie that ow used on me. My ws started using it so I knew he hsd spoken to.her because it just wasn't something he would say...its forbidden in my house now..even my kids know not to say it
