Haven't posted for years but have again due to issues with my son's wedding.It's been six years since the affair,it has been difficult on so many levels,emotional,financial etc.while he seemed to move on with a fun filled single life.I want you all to know that the struggle to ignore them and do the right thing for your family,no matter how lonely or difficult,or costly,is so worth it.My kids are now grown,but are now telling me they recognize and appreciate how hard I worked to keep things together,they learned the importance of family and integrity.They are people of quality,from a home with one strong mother,not a broken home that I so worried about!

Thank you Karen for this!!!
I sometimes wonder what the future will hold for my kids and their relationship with XH. I'm a mom and I worry about things!

Great post, Karen. I worry about my sweet DD7 every day, and I hope she looks back and sees how much Daddy tried to keep it together. I have faith she'll be ok through all of this, but man it's hard sometimes. Thanks...
