It's not about you. It's not about the ap. It's all about the WS.

BTW, I believe there's a thread in ICR for BSes with partners who had ONSes -

fBH (me) - 70 (22 in my head), fWW (plainsong) - 65+, Married 45+, together since 1965
DDay - 12/2010
Recovered, not yet fully R'ed
I share my own experience because it's the only experience I know, not because I'm a good model.

I don't get it either, but as I've come to this forum, I have learned that its not about us nor is it about the attractiveness of the OP. Without meaning to sound boastful, I know I have have so much more to offer than my FWH's OW and I am sure you are the same.

It seems to be about something in the WS needing more validation, boosting their self esteem, thinking they can get away with it, disconnecting sex from the rest of their life or whatever. I take some comfort that he wasn't emotionally involved and in the cold light of day would never have considered doing what he did. I have won hands down over the OW who never stood a chance with him. It was meaningless, so why should I let 10 minutes or however long it took to shag her in the back of her car to ruin my life?he still loves me and is full of remorse and will do anything to help me stop hurting. She meant nothing to him and never did. I think I find that easiest manage than if it had been a long emotional attachment with more meaning.

What is important however is that the WS works hard to get to the bottom of why they did it. At some point, they did make the decision to go ahead with the ONS. It didn't just happen without their consent. They need to know the why. If they don't work on the WH, there is always the possibility that they might do it again, shod the same circumstances arise. They need to workout the why and then ensure that they avoid similar situations. And your WS needs to share it with you, so to feel safe.

My WH had two ONSs, one with a stripper ( ) and I can completely relate. At the time he had the ONSs, I looked the best I have ever looked in my life -- came in 4th place in an NPC Bikini contest! It's not about us.... it's about them.

I completely relate though -- it is really scary -- the ego stroke is all it took? Really!?!? To risk throwing our marriage away, to risk throwing me away? It makes me sick if I really think about it.

It has nothing to do with you, or the person he had the ONS with.

It has everything to do with his issues.

me: BW 31
him: WH, 29
DDay: 4/16/12

A year of false R. I grew and worked, he didn't. He took off his wedding ring during an alcoholic relapse, I packed and left the next day. I went back 8 weeks later, working hard

Yeah, when my WH had his ONS i had looked my best since having a baby. I was running and lifting, preparing for an obstacle course/ race we were doing later in the summer, i was looking good.

All his APs disgust me, but the ONS is one of the worst. She knew he was married, he even showed her a pic of our then 6 month old.

Both of them are broken, broken people.

Me - BS
Him - WS (N3v3rG1v1ngUp)
Together 7 years, married for 2
He was cheating for 5 years
5 OW
D-days: 4/23/13, 4/27/13, 5/10/13
1 toddler, baby girl on the way in December

It's sucks doesn't it ! We went to our first MC today though I got to say my WH surprised me and got straight to the point and said what he has done to our MC and said he badly wants to fix us and opened up so willingly .
