| | How long do affair relationships last after divorce?
I get that the affair partner creates this persona of being the absolutely perfect - better than you could ever be, and tries as hard as they can for as long as they can to keep the act up. So how long does this charade last before there is trouble in paradise and their cover is blown.... the "I can't believe I fell for YOU". I'm thinking 1-2yrs before the Prince charming turns into a royal pain and the relationship ends badly.
About my situation.....
My wife of three years constant support in a military relationship cheated on me about a month after discharge, and then divorced me a year later for the OM the day she graduated college. The OM is somewhat of a childish, druggy, emo ,loser, rock star wannabe, and a fry cook. My ex wife is a kindergarten teacher and devote Catholic and I fear being influenced by this so called perfect guy. As far as I can tell, she's moved in with him and sheltered herself off from close friends and family that don't support their relationship. And I hear that they're parting a lot on what little money they make.
I'm curious as to how long this relationship will last given that it started out as an affair and the OM will likely not support her. I miss my ex wife and would like to talk to her in about a year or so, but not to reconcile or get her back anymore. Yeah, already tried through divorce busters MC, dozens and dozens of book, and a couple thousand in plane tickets and feeding her starving family - something the OM would never do.
I wanna guess a year after divorce, but I could be wrong.
