Loving this thread. Not sure if it's this that's helping me detach more or not, but I'll take it regardless. Been traveling for work, so hard to keep up.

B444 - do I truely believe that it started in January? I know at a minimum plans were being made for the first January overnighter in December. So, even if nothing physical happened then, I would still consider, at a minimum, December to be the starting point. My WW kinda went off the rails in November, so for me, I suspect that it started in November, and she'll only cop to Jan b/c that's all I can prove. Of course there's a chance it started before then, and if it did, my WW's a pro at hiding it.

According to her, she decided back in August that she wanted to be happy, decided that she wasn't happy. The precipitating event was a potentially cancerous cyst on her 1 remaining ovary. She is convinced that she'll die young.

Couple that with a history of CSA, plus serious FOO issues (father was abusive, mother left him, took all the kids, WW only saw him 1 time in her life that she remembers), Mom D 2x, Brother D 1X, Sister D 2x, WW was going through her 1st D when I met her. It's her families MO, when the going gets tough, you D. Don't know if anyone else has had an A in her immediate family.

I too sought counseling in the form of local CODA meetings back in January, thinking that there was something wrong with me. Read a crapload of books on codependency, how to save your marriage, etc. Kept doing research on the web, came across this and other websights that gave me tips on how to find stuff out, and boy did I ever.

I too had previously been the main child caretaker during the week, as she worked further away, so she'd just have to be home for the nanny to get there, whereas I made the dinners, did the baths, etc before she even got home. I pulled more than my fair share of the load in chores at home.

All that has stopped. Someone said there house is a mess, mine too. I'm done with doing all that crap anymore. I need to work on me, and take care of my kids. Coaching 1's baseball team, just signed up to coach baseball for the other 2. I'm a fucking superdad.

I've said it before, and so many of you guys have as well, it's scarey how much of a pattern they all exhibit. Will always be glad I'm not the only one.

BTW, if any of you make it to South Beach (was there over the weekend), I highly recommend Mango's. Fantastic eye candy.

Gentlemen, given the recent resumes on here, is it any wonder the A isn't about you?

How you respond is, and that's what we're working on in our little corner of the internet.

4...what was thename of that perfume? We could make "Bitch Come Running" with the doctors, scientists, and lawyers we got. We'd make a shit ton of money, and make DS & MH NEVER have to ask for donations on this site.
Can't unfck the donkey'd be another great name. Any chemists here? We need a good ester.
Something that doesn't oxidize readily.

how about
'Pong' (it smells like salt encrusted boots)
(for her) Pong for him of course...

We'd make a million bucks.

It's.

I did. It's made things harder, but I had to tell her family to end the A. I ended up telling mine as I was basically breaking down.

Tough call. I'd say I'd do it again, even though it has seriously damaged the chance for R.

Its, that's a good question.

You know, I have seen people say that because A's survive in secrecy you should blow it the F by telling everybody.

IMO, that's bad advice -- especially to someone who just discovered the A. If that is necessary to kill the A then I guess it does not matter.

However, I don't think that is at all necessary in most cases. It certainly does not favor R in my opinion.

Holy shit, run my wife out of town for a doctors appointment and takes me hour reading to catch up. Good stuff though guys!

Its:
Bad idea for me, my sisters and mom would hate her! That would force her back to her crazy ass family for support. Don't think I need them giving her any marriage advice.

I told both families the day after DDay. Her Father and I used to get along very well, but we got into a huge fight. Basically he couldn't handle the fact that his princess was ...well what she was. He felt by exposing I was just being punitive. We haven't spoken in 16 months and my kids haven't seen him in that time either. I am not withholding his grandchildren, he has chosen not to visit.

My family was way cooler to her, at least on the surface, than hers to me. It was like I was the cheater. He mother tried to tell me to get over it, I told her to go fuck herself. We used to pay her to watch our kids after school, those checks stopped. I have made it clear I will not tolerate that BS.

Oh, and I made her go with me to meet with her brother and his wife to tell them how all the bullshit she had been telling them about me for 3 years was just that. That she had fabricated a version of me to justify her actions. To her credit, she did it. It was very unpleasant though.

A few of my buddies know. The night after DDAY I needed to feel loved by someone, so I called a few friends to meet me at a bar. To a man they dropped what they had going on and showed up. It was good to feel appreciated. Ultimately though I wish I hadn't told them. The shame kicked in later. Not sure why, but its there.


The choices we make reveal the true nature of our character

Who to tell? Great question. I would suggest thinking long and hard before telling anyone. Just know 'why' you are telling that person. My in-laws knew a few weeks before me and that has always pissed me off. Of course it wasn't their place to let me know the truth, but they could have insisted that my WW tell me. She kept seeing the OM until I finally found a voice-mail declaring his 'love' for her which followed quickly with me restoring her iPhone backup to an old iPhone I had laying around that revealed 1000s of texts that she was deleting on her own phone. That's another story in itself.

My take is to tell those people who you think can help you or the marriage, which really turns out to be very few people. I told a couple guys in my group because I wanted someone to kinda 'watch over me a little' and make sure I wasn't doing anything too out of the ordinary. I was all over the place at first and it helped me knowing that they knew why. My parents still don't know. Not sure they would ever forgive her. My IC thinks that is a 'red flag' but I know them well and I'm certain it would do more harm than good in the end.

JJ,
how about

I'd call it Come to Me...because if she asked me what I was wearing, I'd pull her close and say "Doesn't it smell like Come to You?"

I love it Tred - Come to Me. Subtle enough that it isn't in your face. (pun intended) No wonder WW liked taking a shower immediately after coming home from work.

I had a great night without any drama. Had some Shang Hai Scallops and Sea Bass, Wedge Salad, and couple Stella's (going to make fun of me for that too, aren't you). Picked up the cologne B444 recommended, Curve. I'm trying it out today to see if it makes me feel like a badass drill Sergeant. I may have to try and bark out some orders today. "Come to me" would be a good one, but it will have to wait until the wife returns tomorrow.

There's a whole movement that has been spawned rel to these two issues: the manosphere.
It has its own nomenclature:
from the pump em and dump em playuhs,
hypergamy,
to
MGTOW
to you name it.
I like the writing at Taken in Hand.

What resonates to me is living inside myself, being true, that kind of shit.
I figure that all throughout history, kingdoms change, technology advances...everything changes, except one thing.
There's one golden thread that is spun from beginning to end.
The human heart.

So when I read

I think it would be much more likely I could pick out "a winner" with this extra education.

I think "you're really awesome" & a winner will pick you!

True story:
Girl I worked with. Was droolingly beautiful. Even with all my *whatever* (knowledge, wisdom, insight, control) - I had to focus to interact with her. She told me she met her bf online.

My jaw dropped.
Oh yeah, because she intimidated guys (her words)- they wouldn't even approach her in social settings.
Disclaimer: I haven't tried OLD. I'm meh about it, too busy, like 64fleet 'take it or leave it'...but one thing is true:
I live inside myself.
Another benefit.

The answer (besides "42"), is to live in your own heart.
"The poetry of a man divided against himself doesn't have the power of the simplest tribal song"

We come stumbling in here, shattered and broken, torn the fuck up. Life is a damn boot camp. Dear God let me leave on my feet.

If my mind could take pictures
to give to all I know,
I'd print the early morningsongs
of newday dawning's show.

Before a bird's eye opens,
before their song is heard,
a magical silence is singing outside
for that,
I can't find a word.

But
A black n white for tentacles
clutching icily to the trees,
or a color print
for the brilliant sunrise
(which exists I'm sure, only to please)

I'll probably go to a nuthouse
for ranting and raving fore dawn,
or,
keep clicking along,
singing my song,
laughing wildly on somebody's lawn.

I would be a fabulous husband to someone

THAT is damn right. Because you are true. To you. & it shows.

Question for my fellow brothers . Have you let your WW parents or your parents know of the A? How about friens and other family members ?

I would say know your circle and act accordingly.

For me, I told just about everyone. MIL second day. All 'our' friends. She called one of her friends in a panic on D-day because I was kicking her out. If I had to do it over again, I would have outed them at work. I blew it all up.

Someone mentioned it may hurt the chances for R. Screw R. IMO it is cards on the table time. I wanted to find out exactly who everybody I knew was. One of the positives of crisis is you can look around and see who is still standing next to you.

I wouldn't say that my reaction is advice or direction for others, but I did discover a lot more than my W's A on d-day. I started the discovery of who my real friends were. Turns out I was lucky. I have a lot of them. Including my MIL. She has not taken this out on her daughter, but she knows who's responsible and it ain't me.

take care....

JJ
LMFAO
How about
"Fog"
You never know when luuuurve will cum
Btw
After DDay I told everyone
She fuckin earned that scarlet letter. No holds barred. Scorched earth policy. Shock and awe.
When I heard about all that horrible shit she was talking about me behind my back. Making me the evil husband I just let it fly. I dropped napalm and TNT.
As Samuel L Jackson said in pulp fiction, I was the guns of Navarone.
I saw it this way. She drew first blood( another great one). She declared war. My livelihood and kids were at stake and my reputation was on the line. I wasn't going to roll up in the fetal position. Hell hath no fury like a betrayed man and ill be damned if I lose my kids to this. It was a time of reckoning. My WW snapped. She was out of control and I made sure people knew about it. Drugs, credit card abuse, fucking other men and abandoning her family. She somehow in her warped mind thought she was clever. My little HS grad who had no idea what the word tact meant. It was truly a DDay when I finally assaulted that beach. Do the crime do the time. I was in self preservation mode and wanted to secure my kids. If she went out of her way to deceive me like that I had no idea what further damage she was capable of. I had to clip her wings fast. Conduct my investigation and make phone calls. I flew her father up to stay with us as an ally. He knows. He's the only one I was gentle with because she is his daughter and I was respectful. She was like a whacked 16 year old and I didn't know who she was. And the fun still didn't stop. It was followed by another OM, a protective order against her, CPS, an arrest etc.
I have learned that exposure is a good thing. She should experience shame, consequences for her bad choices and the position she put her family in. Mind you she went to great lengths to justify herself which included slandering me and fabricating a false image and marriage. She built a house of cards that I blew up completely.

Here's the song of the day.
Jay Z kills it
