| | emotional affair????
I caught my husband having an emotional affair shortly after it started (I think) It was with his coworker. I started to questioning after seeing the cell phone bill. He went from an average of 8 texts to 157! The next month it was over 200! I also noticed that they would talk when he was out of the house. They also would plan play dates with him and our children and her and her child. Conveniently, on the weekends I was in class. This was all done in secret. When confronted, he of course said it was just a "friendship" and told me I was "worried about nothing" I pointed out all the deception but he still didn't see it. So, I printed an article on emotional affairs off the internet and had him read it. It wasn't until after he read about emotional affairs and how they are started and progress that he saw what he was doing. He apologized and told me he didn't even know there was a name for what he was doing. He told me he was not going to continue with this friendship and was going to keep the relationship "only professional". We also went to a marriage counselor who pointed out other aspects of his behavior and the consequences. I am now finding it hard to trust him. Even though he seems to understand everything. The type of job he has makes it difficult to end this relationship entirely. I know he has to work with her. Should I believe him? I feel so hurt!
