My wife of 3-plus years (been together for 6 years) was diagnosed with bipolar disorder three weeks ago and began taking medication. Looking back there had been signs for years and years but it recently took over her life in December when she moved out after an argument and got her own place. We were working through issues and seeing a counselor and things seemed to be going well. It was like we were dating again and even looking to buy a house together. However at the same time she was looking for a house for just herself at the same time behind my back. Then a day after being diagnosed she had sex with her ex-husband and has continued to sext and have phone sex with him a couple more times since until I found out the other day. She says some days she feels like she loves me and other she doesn't. She says she has to get her own place (even though she has no job at the moment) for self care reasons and says she doesn't know what she wants yet despite giving no indications she wants to try and fix the marriage after her unfaithfulness. I don't know if this is a biproduct of the bipolar disorder or if she is just unfaithful. I'm lost at the moment of what to do. I don't want to be used and strung along but if it is the bipolar I would like to try and work it out. I do still love my wife even after her unfaithfulness.
