He wants to stay married, and gets angry if I bring up all of his infidelities.
Yep, rugsweeping and a desire to cake eat. Part of the cheater's bag of tricks. I could still be 'happily' married if I never mentioned any of his affairs and allowed him to continue on about his cheating business. I ruined everything, don't cha know! That left me with a choice. Accept an open marriage and never question it, or kick his ass to the curb because I am worth more than that. I chose to end it even though I was constantly second guessing my decision in the beginning. However I knew emphatically what I did NOT want.

This arsehole is saying that everybody's life would be better if you would just let him walk all over you. You are allowed to disagree.
The best thing about hitting rock bottom is that everything after that looks fucking fabulous

He keeps insisting that he has always loved me and it would have been fine if I hadn't found out.
