So WH is at our home today to spend Christmas with my kids. We have not lived together since the end of Oct so being in our home at the same time is uncomfortable for me but I do it with a smile just for my kids. Starting tomorrow, my family is coming into town and for some reason WH wants to be here. We started discussing plans for the kids for the next few days and when I told him it would be easier on me if he wasn't around he says "Is it that hard for you to be around me?" Um let me see, you hide several women "friends" from me for 2+ years (along with their nasty nude pics on your phone) and then you have unprotected sex with another nasty woman who gave you a STD in Sept and I'm supposed to be excited to have you around?? I told him he made this bed and now it's time to lay in it. I've been cordial because my kids are here and I plan to ignore him for the rest of today. It's the only thing that keeps me sane.

Ugh, hang in there girl. If you do not feel comfortable with him being there, he needs to respect your wishes. I would imagine it's hard enough for you having him there today!
So long, and thanks for all the fish!

Asshole. DUOAH! You do wonder, sometimes, if there are two brain-cells left to rub together.
Imagine a ship trying to set sail while towing an anchor. Cutting free is not a gift to the anchor. You must release that burden, not because the anchor is worthy, but because the ship is.

Nope he still doesn't get it. Maybe that is exactly what you need to say to him too...You just don't get it. Life just does not go back to normal when one spouse does this to another.

Just the facts ma'am. Tell him your boundaries and stick to them. You don't have to explain yourself.
He asked you about your "feelings," but he doesn't get to know those anymore.

Hang in there. My dday was three weeks after you so it's all still rather fresh for me, too.
But, agree with the others...he absolutely has to respect your wishes. Smartest thing I ever did was to make him move out and to keep contact with WH to an absolute bare minimum.
If that is what you need to keep you sane, then do it...no need to explain yourself to anyone, let alone the SOB.
