    Husband no help at all

    Anyone have any idea what to do with hubby who pretends there is no problem? Long story short... We've been married 18 years and have 3 boys and a girl. He, knowing full well that cheating would be the one thing that I couldn't handle at all, went ahead and did it anyway. Well, after walking...

I've been living my life like this for as...
