Well, first of all, I'm so sorry you're going through this. It's definitely not easy to work through an affair and deal with all the emotions that inevitably come after finding something out like this. But, it seems like you've already gotten some good advice. As doubletrouble mentioned, it's definitely important that your husband has boundaries with the opposite-sex and is open and honest with you about everything. That will certainly go a long way towards rebuilding trust in your marriage. Also, I know you mentioned you both went to counseling when this first happened, but perhaps you should consider going again? Even if it's just on your own, I think a counselor can help you work through all that you're feeling right now and figure out what steps to take next. Lastly, maybe it would be helpful to see if you can find a support group in your area? Somewhere to talk about this openly and hear from others in your shoes and how they got through times like this. I think an organization called Hope and Healing started by Gary and Mona Shriver might be able to connect you with something like this (hopeandhealing.us). So, just FYI if you want to check out their site. In the meantime, I'm praying for you, friend. Hang in there!
