I asked my H if he was with this particular girl while we were dating and he said no but the got mad and told me that I need to stop and let us move forward to think about how he feels. He tired of my questioning and thinks I'll never get over what was done years ago. Should I really stop and move forward? How can I really do that?

strangeasfiction posted 1/26/2014 13:06 PM

Do you have reason to believe he isn't telling the truth? Without something to back it up then I think the issue really isn't this girl. The issue is that you don't trust him. Maybe he hasn't earned that trust or maybe he once had it and has since lost it. I'm no expert in these matters but I can see how he might get frustrated if he really didn't do anything with this girl. Again, this seems symptomatic of some other part of the relationship that needs to be addressed. He should be just as aware of that as anyone. Maybe the question shouldn't be, "Were you with her?" Maybe the question should be, "I need to learn how to trust you again. How can we do that?"

I'm trying to trust him again, it's just hard. I had trusted him with everything until I found out what he did. I feel like there are things he kept hidden and I don't know why I want to know its just keep playing back in my head. I believe he's been faithful since we got married should I only care about that since we are married now?

It looks like you have had 3 ddays (or he has had 3 affairs?).

Getting angry when asked questions is a typical thing for an unremorseful WS. Throw in the, " think how I feel" bullshit, AND his rushing you to rugsweep and move forward on HIS timeline..yeah..it sounds like he was with this other girl when you were dating.

At this point,with 3 dday, or 3 seperate incidences of being unfaithful, he should be putting YOUR feeling ahead of his. He should be willing to answer all of your questions, without anger, or defensiveness, for as long as you need to ask them. It takes years to heal from this shit...and with 3 ddays...it sounds like he isn't doing anything to fix his issues.

What, exactly, has he done to become a safe partner for you?

He cheated 3 different times (that I know of). Said we weren't married and didn't think our relationship would last cuz if our age differences. Said we weren't exclusive at the beginning of our relationship (I thought we were). He's changed his phone #, I have his passwords, checks up on my all day. He said he's ready to move forward but I just discovered all of this after we were married.

Are you in couple's counseling? There are obvious communication and trust issues to be resolved. Secrets don't help a marriage. If he wants to commit to you then that includes being honest and forthright. If you want to commit to him that includes trust. One of those can't really exist without the other. He can't just through, "You should trust me" back into your face if he's not willing to be completely open with you.

yme32313 posted 1/26/2014 13:54 PM

I'm the one taking counseling, he said that it really needs to be in the past. That we weren't even married. I'm hurt for what he did and everyone I have spoken to has said it was before marriage and a long time ago. 5 years Before we were even engaged. He said he's said all that he needs to, don't need that much clarity because we weren't even committed. My counselor is helping cope with all my pain.

strangeasfiction posted 1/26/2014 14:00 PM

Well, he should take it from me. When a spouse asks for counseling it is a cry for help no matter what the other partner might think. I was blind to that and now I'm playing "what if" scenarios through my head as I'm trying to save my marriage. Even if he doesn't think he doesn't need it I hope he sees that YOU do. That should be enough for him.

yme32313 posted 1/26/2014 14:03 PM

Am I wrong for asking questions? Should I leave it on the past? Should I just see it as something before marriage?

confused615 posted 1/26/2014 14:26 PM

You were in a committed relationship and he cheated. Im guessing you found all of this out on your own? He didn't tell you anything that you didn't have proof of?

By his reasoning..he didn't think it'd last because of the age difference..you weren't married yet..then if that is how he felt..then he should have been upfront with you that he was having sex with other people. That he didn't tell you? yeah..because he was cheating..he knew it was wrong..and that's why he hid it from you.

Also..if he didn't think it was a big deal, he should have told you before you got married,so you had the right to make an informed decision about whether you wanted to marry him or not.

He cheated. You get to ask questions.

yme32313 posted 1/26/2014 14:34 PM

Those are my thoughts but he believes it wasn't any of business. I'm afraid I can't move forward and this will all end. :(

strangeasfiction posted 1/26/2014 14:39 PM

If he ends it because he doesn't like your questions then shame on him and good for you. I hope you get to point where the questions are unnecessary. Only he can help you get to that point. If he's committed to the relationship then he will give you that help. If he doesn't, then you know where he stands.

yme32313 posted 1/26/2014 14:45 PM

He's answering them... Don't know if he's being honest if them. Said he's being hurt as well because he know I don't fully trust him. He says he's learned from his mistakes in the past but he really wants to move forward. Never thought he would get married and he never wanted too until he realized he loved me. I was betrayed and that hurts so much.

yme32313 posted 1/26/2014 14:45 PM

Never thought he'd do that to me, was in the beginning of our relationship where I was falling in love. Guess he wasn't feeling the same.

He didn't believe telling you he was having sex..probably unprotected..with other women..was any of your business??

I wonder, if you had been screwing around with other men before you were married, and just now told him, would he be ok with it?

He wants you to rugsweep. His feeling are hurt that you don't trust him?? That's a consequence of lying and cheating on your BW..they stop trusting you!!

yme32313 posted 1/26/2014 15:26 PM

I asked the same question and he said he would have to just deal with it. Because he's married to me now.

yme32313 posted 1/26/2014 15:26 PM

It's different when there are "what if" questions.

JustWow posted 1/26/2014 15:35 PM

So he managed to get you to say I do before he got busted so he believes he committed no offense?

Would you have married him if you had found out when these things occurred?

I wouldn't ask him questions. I'd Hefty bag his belongings and 180 his unremorseful, lying, manipulating, rug-sweeping butt.

yme32313 posted 1/26/2014 15:44 PM

180 meaning? Leave him?

JustWow posted 1/26/2014 15:58 PM

cut and paste this link into your browser bar -

it is from the healing library (that yellow box over there on the upper left corner of your screen).

the 180 is about detaching from an unhealthy WS and taking care of you. Sometimes that can have the effect of encouraging the WS to extract their cranium from their rectum, but certainly not always. It is not about that, anyway. It is about you focusing on you and taking care of you.
