Oh my goodness, THIS was almost me, but I changed direction. Instead I am now with someone who has been married twice before. I have actually confronted the second wife (via 3 days of email threads) on a few issues and as it turned out, we would have been friends in a different world. We are very similar and we have both experienced the same issues with him. She remarried and now has a child -she is very happy. I am still “the girlfriend” after a Looooonnng 8 years.
I did have a “thing” with a married man while I was married and it was a double edged sword, and quite the story. He has also remarried now. This piece cut me to the core. Thank you for sharing
