About to lose everything.
Hopefully someone here can help me. This is a hard thing to talk about, but I have no other place to turn.
A little back story...my wife and I have been together for 10 years married for almost 5. We have had a pretty rocky time through the years with money issues, trust issues (addiction) and even health scares, but through it all we worked it out. Recently she has been hanging out with a woman 10 years her junior and becoming distant. I asked over and over what the problem was, but got nowhere. I started to suspect she was cheating on me and this woman knew who it was, but come to find out after confronting her my wife tells me she is developing feelings for this woman.
Her reasoning for this is the hours I work, that we do not talk, and that we argue "all the time". She told me she has noticed I have been trying harder to save our marriage, but that she is "developing feelings" for this woman and will not let them go. She says even if she did I would never trust her again. I am in a no win situation and am about to lose the love of my life and my daughter (5) to something "that could just be a passing phase". She says she still loves me but is drawing further and further away from me. I try to tell her how she is making me feel, but no matter how I explain it she can not be empathetic.
Should I just walk away? Should I fight for my wife and family? I am lost and falling into a deep despair I am not sure I will be able to recover from. I am physically sick over this. I love my wife, but she wants me to let this happen and is willing to sacrifice it all "to make me happy".
PLEASE HELP ME!
