After nearly 2 months of debating, reading posts here, praying, and thinking, I decided to call the 70 year old husband of the 67 year old woman who slept with my 38 yr. Old husband for over a year. I introduced myself, told him through tears this was the hardest call i'd ever made in my life but that I couldn't stand him not knowing the truth. Before I could even tell him anything he said he knew what this was about and I was full of bullsh*t then hung up on me. My WS admitted he broke the NC and told the OW I may try to call her husband so she obviously gave him the heads up. I begged my WS to call this man and tell him the truth, but he said
he won't. Now I wish I had never called because now I have been re victimized. Can't take any more hurt. So low...

Hon... this is not your fault! They got to the poor man first and some BS's are just unable to cope with knowing the truth about their lives....
YOU are not the first to have this happen to you... others on here have posted about when they contact the other betrayed spouse about how they got serious denial... to function the poor man needs to live in denial about his wife...
DO not be angry at yourself or him.... he needs to live this way to function and get through the day... this may be enough to get him to slowly wake up... if so he will become more vigilant and begin to watch his own wife... he will likely begin to question small things... and eventually he is going to see the light... keep all your evidence for that day, should it come.... but do not allow him to make you feel bad.... you told the truth and it's now on his shoulders to do as he wishes to try to save himself...

Honey, he KNOWS. He just can't deal with it - he's taking his anger on her out on you.

I'm so sorry. But please know it's not because he doesn't believe you.

It wasn't in vain.

JMHO, but I'd say if your WH won't speak the truth to the man, that would be a dealbreaker for R. AND he broke NC to do damage control. I'm so sorry.

I'm sorry if you don't like my Honesty, but to be fair I don't like your lies.

Sometimes it's better to push someone away...not because you stopped loving them but because you can't take the pain anymore.

I would feel bad for the 70yo. This is probably someone he has been with for 30, 40 years or more. He just can't deal with it.

I think an important issue here is that your husband is still protecting her.

I agree with the wise posts above. Your WH should do what YOU ask him to do. He should want to defend your honor.

First, I am proud of you. You tried to do the right thing. Know that in your heart. Perhaps send a letter then be done with it.

Agree with the others. Why did he feel it was necessary to break the NC to protect the other woman?

RED FLAG and that is selfish and wrong of him.

Make him calling the OW's husband a condition of R for you. If he cares about rebuilding your marriage then he will do WHATEVER it takes.

Has your husband addressed in IC why he allowed himself to cheat with at 67 year old woman?

Stay strong. You did nothing wrong. He did and continues to put himself before you.

Demand respect and start to 180 him. Sounds as if he is still in denial.

Good luck

Looks like he wants his relationship with the old hag over you... Look if he can't abide by what you need then boot his ass out of the house...

Maybe then he will get it!!
You deserve more..
If you can't boot him then when he comes home from work.. You either not be there and be out and about with the child or child at parents and you out and about with friends... Look don't be available to him.
Let him know you can and will have a life with or without him that he isn't all that!!

Good luck... And find a different therapist!! If she told you not to tell the BS she isn't worth crud!

I think the real problem here is your WH broke NC...something he promised you he wouldn't do..to warn the OW. He is protecting her.

This is why we warn BS's not to tell their WS they're going to tell the OBS.

Im so sorry.

If he refuses...and he allows this man to think you are a liar...tell him no R.

Seriously. He disrespected you with the affair...and is disrespecting you now.

He broke NC...to protect his whore.

What are the consequences of him breaking NC?

This is a cautionary tale as to why you NEVER tell the WS that you plan on telling the other BS about the infidelity. Now, what do you do about the broken NC?

yep.

and yep again.

No matter what you did the right thing. Don't let his reaction take that away from you. Sometimes people aren't ready for the truth.

Now what's the next step with your WH?

You have been revictimized--but not by the OBS. He is like any other--he wants to believe his cheating wife.

The person who victimized you in this case was your husband, who betrayed you, yet again, to get in cahoots with OW. He protected her at your expense.

And trust me, I know how much that hurts.

(((determined99)))

It still was the right thing to do. (I didn't believe the first person who told me my husband was cheating, either. But in retrospect, I am very glad she did tell me--actually, I was grateful at the time, even though I believed it to be unthinkable that my husband would cheat--idiot that I was; it helped me reconstruct my husband's history when I did accept it.)

the first thing on your next grocery list should be Hefty bags.

obviously WH has made the choice to protect her first.

he needs to be gone until you are his first choice.

This! I wish I had been strong enough to do what you did, which was very very much the right thing to do. I'm sorry, but if he's refusing to call the man and tell him the truth, then A) he still wants some sort of relationship with her B) he is more protective of her than you. Either/both of those equals C) He is not truly remorseful and R is not possible at this time.

I think an important issue here is that your husband is still protecting her.

Unfortunately, this is very true. He broke NC, to warn her. He chose protecting her, over helping heal you.

Your WS contacting the OBS with the truth, should be a requirement to R, especially since he broke NC to warn her. He made a terrible situation just that much more messed up and complicated by doing so...now he needs to make it right.

It is such a blessing that you found SI so early in this process, I can't help but be sad that I didn't...how different things might have been.

Like another poster said, Demand the Respect You Deserve.

Do not take anything less than true remorse, for you will just find yourself in false R, and may end up with many of the regrets I, like so many of us, do.

You should be proud of yourself, that you did in fact do the right thing. Your WH and the OW sabotaging it, doesn't negate that. Someone mentioned writing it out and sending it to him (if your WS doesn't do what you've asked), is a good idea if you have a means to do that, and if you still want to reach out. Seeing things in black and white, holding it in your hand, has a way of clearing the fog and shutting out all of the other noise.

I'm so sorry that your WH did this, and even more sorry that he inflicted more unnecessary pain. You're stronger than I was, I applaud you for that!

As to the OBS - Your heart was in the right place, you did the right thing, let go of the outcome.

As to your WH - His heart is in the wrong place - he did the wrong thing, and now you decide the outcome of this for him!

The fact that your WH is a minister and is still protecting the OW speaks volumes about his true character. He isn't interested in helping you through this at all, he's only interested in protecting himself and his OW still. Time to get a stiff upper lip and give him a full 180.
