I tried to tell myself that H's ONS wasn't as bad as if he was in an EA. After some deep thinking, I realized that it is.

My H was willing to take a chance on losing me and his family for someone that he didn't care about.

There are so many comparisons made redarding a WS's A. Even if the OP was better looking than the BS. An unattractive OW (such as in my case) hurts too. He didn't even have any standards. He would've done anyone and anything that was willing.

Prostitutes are often thought of as less significant as well. I consider each hooker that H was with as an OW and even though it was a "business transaction" he had many ONS. IMHO.

Infidelity in any way, shape, or form SUCKS big time.

An A is an A regardless of whether it was one night or 20, emotional or physical.

It is betrayal. Plain and simple.

Thanks for posting this thread. Like a lot of others my H had a ONS. I found out 5 months afterwards after doing some investigating of my own.

It hurts, but it is nice to read and have support from others who have been through the same thing.

I have a good idea of what one of the hookers looks like. She has a website -- complete with photos. (Her face is fuzzy in the photos -- but you can tell hair color, body shape, etc).

If I wanted, I could email another of the hookers, pretend to be interested in her services and she'd email photos. She promises to email photos if you email and ask.

Thus, if your WH is willing to share the hooker's name (if he knows it... ) maybe she has a website?

I asked my GF about her ONS and she was kind enough to tell me all the details. I don't recommend it to everybody but it actually helped me gain some perspective on the whole situation.

I know. She works with him and her picture is on the website. I also met her pre-infidelity, but didn't register. I thought she was just another colleague.

I finally was "ready" to hear the answer. The hooker looks - in a very general way - like me. (about my height, mid-30's vs. my 44, bit longer than shoulder-length hair - mine USED to be before I cut it short a few years ago.)

I'm a bit SHOCKED that he didn't "choose" one of the 20 yr olds, or one of the blonds with long hair, or......

At least what he chose is something that I can "compete" with - vs. a 20 yr. old blond with long hair and a dancers body.

My eyes are blue, though, her's I assume are brown, and she's South American (therefore darker skinned than I). Other than that - I WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My H's ONS was at a conference with a secretary (not his assistant he does not have one). She is vibrant, attractive, short, no tits and skinny (he is a breast and bum kind of guy). Not what I thought he would have gone for. She ended up in his room and he has no idea how....he was drunk. I think she went for him and he did not say no....

Have seen her at a work function since in Feb 07 (ONS was July 2005) and really she does not threaten me. I do wonder how women spread their legs so easily for guys they work with ... and how they hold their heads up afterwards.

My H still works there - there was no attraction beforehand, repulsion only since and as long as she is at the conferences I know he has a constant reminder of his past behaviour and it will not happen again. He has lost the privelege of drinking at work functions, a major factor in his behaviour with the ONS.....

Although I knew about his "one time" first betrayal almost 3 years ago, it is really hitting me now. We have talked about it in the past weeks--he says it was one time, he did it for sex [/bold]only. We were having a rough patch then--do they do it to feel desireable? That's what I'm thinking, but I may be delusional.

He said he felt so guilty after, and never bothered with her again.

He says men and women are "different" in the way they feel about sex. I told him it doesn't matter--betrayal is betrayal.

Me: BW
Him: WH
In R, doing good as far as I can tell.

But, that's just me...

I recently found out my H had a ONS w a co-worker who is his long time "mentee". She was at our wedding, the ONS happened about 8 months after, when we had apparently had an argument and she provided a shoulder to cry on. Unfortunately this event resulted in an OC. I don't think that I believe it was a ONS, but he is insistent and gave me too much information with regard to where and when it happened. yuck.

My H has a new job starts soon.

OW has visited his office to say goodbye. She is not sad he is leaving, no feelings there,but sad that the co has changed in the last couple of years

Me? I am not threatened by her visit to H, I am excited we get to leave this behind us.

Till this point NC has been in place. No emotions involved, just a discussion that the co is not the same.

For me - I have my pom poms on - yippee - next stage in our lives......

My H had a ONS with my cousin who was my best friend since I was 5 years old.

This happened 1 year (1998) after we got married and I came to know of it in 2002. I was wrecked.

Strangely both say that "it was a mistake" and I should move on. It took me some time but I moved on only to be dragged right back as I discovered a month back (dec 2007)my H has been having phone sex and other sexual conversation with another women for more than a year (Oct 2006 to Dec 2007).

Nikki, I think this is all our biggest fear... that it will happen again.

In addition to his ONS, my H also had an LTA for over 7 years and cheated on me while we were engaged. If I hadn't found out about them all at once, I don't know that I would still be here.

Is your H willing to get counseling to deal with his compulsions?

But I don't ever want you to think that because you "let him get away" with the earlier betrayal, that you're somehow responsible for this happening. This is all his choice.

My H had a ONS several months ago, and he was so wracked with guilt that he told me himself. I was having enough trouble with that until we found out the OW is pregnant with his baby, paternity confirmed. We're waiting for the official paternity once the kid is born, hoping for a mistake. She was the girlfriend of one of the groomsmen in our wedding. They had just split, it's all in my profile. We have been together since high school, and now it looks like a 2-minute mistake might be enough to ruin all that.

Does anyone have a success story? I'd like to hear that a relationship can recover from a one night stand. My husband went to a massage parlor, had oral sex, came home and gave me a STD. It was a horrible revelation, but we're in therapy and I truly believe he had a lapse in judgement based on personal trauma. Something inside me tells me that its not part of his conscious to repeat this. However, I have my moments when I freak out and wonder if there's more I don't know about - if he has some secret sex life or had in the past. I just don't know and I don't know how to move past the uncertainty of not ever being sure. Its been about 4 months since I found out. Has anyone had any similar feelings?

iamhurt - Oh yes! You are not alone in those feelings - what if there is more....

Ny WHs ONS turned into 2 ONSs, then a third, then the second one was probably more like a PA - yadda yadda yadda

He says that is all there is - I say BS. I think there are people who will have ONE ONS when they are really stupid drunk, confess to their partner, and forever be faithful...

But when you find out that your WH made "the same" mistake, over and over, until they got caught - hell, I think it may be worse that a LTA - because they'll just have sex with anyone who is willing and able.

My WH might be telling me the truth, or he might have screwed every woman he was every friendly with at the bar when I was at home with the kids...I may never know, and that is sooooo crazy making.

Waiting for the other shoe to fall on a constant basis.


It is really tough to wonder who the heck they really are.

I have just found out that WH had nothing but ONS (so he says) First it was just BJ, then he admitted he had a hooker and f**d.This has been the last few months. He admitted it Jan 19/08.
He had had a ONS with an escort, while he was dealing, and she wanted something so yeah..I found out about it a year later. I always suspect it, but he denied it (of course) I think he told me because he seen her at a meeting and maybe thought I would find out anyways. She came up to me when I was at the meeting, said "hi do you remember me, I use to come over to your place" well, I am pretty much say what I think kinda gal, and said "yes I remember you and I know you fucked my husband" She almost fell to the floor. I told her that it was ok (she didn't know he was married at the time of it, I still remember her finding out I was his wife right after the one time) You know what, she helped me the most out of everyone during that time. I understood that she was sick in addiction, and he was a pig, and she did what she had to do for her drug, and it was her profession (escort) But she was in recovery for 6 months, stopped the job, and got clean and sober. She knew I was sensitive, but I thank god I listened and talked to her. So, my WH 1st one time, (that I know of) is the one that help me. I did pretty much forget about it, only creeped up once and awhile. (happened in Jan 02, found out Mar 03) I worked on me, he worked on him.
Now the last few months he says have been INS, I know he has also had and EA at the least with his ex-wife, and whoever else, and on sex meeting sites, I found the email. He is not sorry he did it, he just kept doing it over an over for months, he is still doing it, I think that is why he wants time apart. I need it too. So, who would have thought that the INS, would be the one to help get me out of my darkness, be the most understanding, and teach me so much about healing, growing, and forgivness. How is that for a success story. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. This just happened to be our higher power working for me. We didn't talk about it right away, but, it feels alot better not hating her, not hating him, and not hating myself.

Oh, Thank you, Thank you! For this thread...I think I spent days reading other post looking for someone else who didn't have an affair with an OW.

I suspected...but couldn't prove...I knew but didn't know what...My husband wasn't drunk at a bar, He is a recovering alcoholic, comes home everynight, goes to work everyday...he doesnt surf porn ( my profile)

I have know idea how many prostitutes he has hired because it was all while he was working! He does commercial heating and air so he is all over town, I don't know where he is working from one hour to the next ussually. BUT, he spend our money our time our health on WHAT? He won't talk about specifics, he knows I don't believe it was just once (he was arrested a few weeks ago for solicitation) We are going to MC. But, I can't sleep, I wonder how many? how much? What did he request? My hear is soooo broken...I feel like things will be okay...then my imagination takes over and I can't function.

I start a new job tomorrow and I'm terrified of it. But at the same time I HAVE to get out of this house...I spend the whole day thinking about it.

I have to stop I'm crying too hard

Un-flipping believable! You just can't make this stuff up!
