The what if question got me thinking about another what if.

Do you believe your WS would have told you the truth, if they had never been caught? Even if you suspected and asked them if something was going on.

Do you believe they would have told you any truth if they weren't actually caught having an affair?

Absolutely not! My husband initially told me he went for a massage for the hour he wasn't answering my calls. Then when I told him what car he used and that it was parked outside a motel he then confessed. No way would they admit it unless they know you have proof.

My. STBXWW would never have admitted a thing. She wouldn't even tell her IC - lied for 4 months to her own therapist!

Like hell he would have!!!!!!

No, he would not have told me. He would have kept on seeing her to see where this would lead to ( like he did not know)and how soon. I gathered this much from what he told me and I quote:" who knows what would have happened in the summer had we not gone away for such a long time?" yeah.....like he did not know what would have happened!!!

I doubt it. Maybe a deathbed confession or something. The WS is so used to telling anything but the truth it would take a big shakeup in their life to confess.

Hell no!

My exPOS confessed to me; as much as "I like (an unnamed) someone from work" and "we never even held hands" is a confession of year long infidelity on D-Day. Would take another 9 months which was many months into the D process, for her to say it was sexual. Thank God for a very helpful BS, who clued me in on a ton of stuff.

Cheaters love to triangulate, say as much or as little as the situation dictates to serve their selfish needs... What scum they are.

I caught my WH facebooking his ex. And he came out and told me about meeting a women on Craigslist, I had no idea and there was no evidence of it on his phone. So I guess he could have just kept it a secert and I would have never know.

No, she would never have told, I'm pretty sure about that. She tried to pull the "you got the wrong idea, we're just friends" on me when I confronted her until she realized I already knew.

My personal opinion is that most affairs are never discovered, or at least not by both betrayed spouses - I don't know what percent, but I'd say more than half. Just look at the threads on here how many spouses catch their spouse cheating but never tell the affair partner's spouse. I'm aware of a lot of people catching their cheaters but I'm not aware of too many unsolicited confessions.

No. I did ask and he assured me they were "just friends" and it would never be more than that. 3 mos later it went PA. Again I told him I was uncomfortable with their friendship and told him he seemed unhappy. He said he was very happy and that he wouldn't hang out with her or talk to her as much but it continued until she ended it.

He says he was thinking about confessing after but I honestly don't know if he would have.

No, he would have never told me.

She was never going to tell me. For some bizarre reason she thought she was invisible after many confrontations and accusations and contacting POSOM separated wife and following her. She somehow thought I didn't know. I did not have hard proof. Only circumstantial evidence but a truck load of that. I had bad advice off the internet. I wish I would have found SI and avoided doing so many things wrong. When I finally wrote out all of the circumstatial evidence I had (which I had been advised on some website to never do - never disclose all of your cards) she confessed - 11 years later after a 3+ year LTA with a POSCOWOM. Minimum of weekly trysts. No she would not have told me except she then thought I knew more than she thought I knew. Pretty honest, huh.

No way in hell. I did suspect something the first two weeks it started and indirectly asked what was going on. I was lied to and told I was the love of her life. I guess that was true in her mind except when she was fucking the other man.

HeBrokeVows posted 7/23/2014 00:23 AM

no way, he would've never told me the truth. Heck, he even kept lying once caught and I had all his emails. He made me think what I saw wasn't real.

I suspected for approx. 5 months, I asked, he denied. I caught things, he had reasons, he denied, I believed.

It wasn't until I found his secret email account he couldn't deny anymore.

stronger08 posted 7/23/2014 02:18 AM

Nope !!!!! Shit, 10 years after D-day, a D and her moving in with another guy who she is supposedly marrying she still can't be honest with anyone about her past. My XWW has gone so far as to cutoff off friends and family simply because they know the truth about her sordid past. Matter of fact I'll bet a months income that she cheats on this poor bastard too. She cant help herself, she's in love with falling in love. Don't matter to her who gets hurt or whatever damage occurs. As long as she gets her love fix she is good. She has made a life out of lying and when someone catches her in one she just blames them, creates a story as to why they can no longer be in her life and shuts them like a leaky faucet. Needless to say she does not have many friends or family members left who interact with her. Its sad when you think about it, she is almost 50 and is still behaving like she did in her younger days. Some people just refuse to learn from their mistakes. And that's because they wont admit to the mistake in the first place.

Want To Wake Up posted 7/23/2014 02:47 AM

No, I don't believe he would ever have told me.

In fact, I believe had I not found evidence and confronted him he would have continued on his merry way, he was having a ball, reliving his youth.

Heck, even when I found the condoms he denied, denied, denied. He said over and over... "I never would, never could", he accused me of being paranoid. It took undeniable photographic evidence for him to admit to it... and I don't count that as a "confession"

Zayda1 posted 7/23/2014 02:59 AM

Nope. WH had told me flat out that he had no intention of telling me. The only reason I know is because OBS found ALL their sexting messages and was going to tell, so he made sure he told me first...because he's such a good guy and wanted to protect me from OBS.

UneasyFeelings posted 7/23/2014 03:14 AM

I think one of the main reasons I'm still around is, at least when I confronted my ww when my gut feeling was ready to burst, she confessed to the majority of it. Received a bit of TT, but at the time, I guess it didn't matter, since I was "done".

It leads me to believe, one of the qualities I love about my ww is still there. But yeah, thanks for the Shit sandwich.

theroadahead posted 7/23/2014 06:19 AM

No way!!! He would have taken it to his grave. The only reason he had to admit something was when I got a phone call from OW husband. Even then I got the whole,"we're just friends" excuse. After TT I got more of the story. I still think there are some things that he's still holding onto that I will never know. If he could barely tell me when he was caught, there is no chance in hell he would have told me without being forced to.

lilacs40 posted 7/23/2014 06:50 AM

Nope WH would have never confessed. He'll, he has never admitted to anything that I couldn't prove so ill never know if if the first two EA were ever physical. If they weren't its only because I caught him before it went that far.

Charmedwren posted 7/23/2014 07:05 AM

No way. Mine got busted when I checked the phone account and he still denied it. It wasn't until my DD found Facebook messages between him and OW did he confess to kissing her "one time". It was more than one time.....
