Re: Affair with my neighbor
You are in the fog. You are chasing a fantasy. In real life a wife must help you raise the kids, address bills and deal with real issues. An affair partner is nothing but sunshine and roses. No heavy lifting, just fun romance. Once you have her the newness will wear off, and real life will kick you in the butt once again. The only difference now is that your kids and friends will never fully respect you, and you will always know deep down inside that your new wife is capable of cheating on you when things are not going well, and she will know the same thing about you. You will be in a relationship where both of you have good reason not to trust the other when the chips are down.
Although you are too deep in the fantasy to know it, this will not end well for you. Sadly it will also not go well for your children either. My dad cheated on my mother, they got divorced and my life was never the same afterwords. Now that my dad is old, when he asks what happened to my relationship with him, I tell him the name of the OW is what happened (BTW my dad and the OW did not stay together very long after my mother found out, and it was my dad that ended up trying to stop the divorce, but he came out of the fog too late). I wish you nothing, but do pray for your children.
