Re: I cheated on my husband - with EX. Need advice!
Yes, tell your husband, truth is paramount in a marriage. If you lie then that makes your entire marriage a lie. Your husband deserves the truth from you.
You made the mistake, not him. Do not compound your mistake by lying about it. Because honestly little, if it happened once it could happen more times if not delt with. I know you say you'd never do it again, but be honest with yourself. You were weak once, what's to stop you from being weak again? That thought process is exactly how people end up addicted to things (food, drugs, alcohol, sex, etc). You were not strong enough to stop it the first time, you probably will not be strong enough to stop it the next time it happens.
The only way this will end up positive is if you tell your husband, and go into counseling together.
