I have a problem....last night I saw a text on my husbands phone saying "when can we meet up again baby" there was a whole conversation but before I could read it he snatched the phone and deleted it. He says he met a girl in a pub and swapped numbers and hasn't seen her since but I don't believe him. Its the 2nd time he has strayed...I dont know if he has slept with anyone....at a guess id say he has. AiBU to want him to leave without much proof, we have been together 10 years with 4 kids who are devestated.

YANBU to want him to leave if you are sure he has been unfaithful. You clearly don't trust him. But with 4 DCs, is there any way you can work through it - or at least try? Is your relationship generally OK?

You told the kids?

YANBU. But yes...why did you tell the kids at this point? Are they teens?

motherhen83 Fri 27-Dec-13 17:58:57

I didnt tell them one of them overheard and blabbed

It may not be much proof but it is still proof. He shouldn't be swapping numbers with girls in bars.

But only you can make this decision.

Repost on the relationships board.

you don't need proof, you only need to be sure this is the right thing to do for you and your family.

With so many straying husbands it makes me think we are playing a game of pass the parcel. Swap one straying eedjit for another. Cynicism aside, if you want a committed relationship and he clearly wants something else, he would be very selfish to stay. At the very least he has been flirting with this girl and the idea of straying again.

You clearly have grounds to distrust him, and that is hardly the bedrock for a stable marriage.

It is unlikely he will ever improve, so I guess you have to consider your options carefully.

motherhen83 Fri 27-Dec-13 18:02:59

Yes I agree. Why can't men just b happy with what they have. I hear so many stories similar to mine

Don't act to quickly. You need to talk this through, maybe nothing has happened, just texting at the moment, not saying that's ok though. Do you think he will be honest with you? How is everything else between you both?

I am not suggesting you become a doormat but do try and talk calmly first. don't act in haste.

I'm guessing if it was all innocent, he wouldn't have grabbed the phone and deleted the messages.

You two need to talk calmly in private about this...away from the kids and decided what to do.

I would leave him you have enough proof imo.

motherhen83 Fri 27-Dec-13 18:06:27

Everything has been fine we r getting on really well. He works away which gives him a green light. I have talked to him but I just get emotional blackmail. Its also really hard to speak around the kids its a nightmare I wanted to b together forever and I wanted my kids to have both parents living together I'm a bit old fashioned I suppose

How old are the kids?

LuciusMalfoyisSmokingHot Fri 27-Dec-13 18:18:31

So hes done it once, luckily got forgiven and hes doing it again.

You really wanna stay with a man who dont respect you enough to stay faithful.

Cabrinha Fri 27-Dec-13 18:29:50

Well, he's clearly at it again. I'm sorry but you have proof.
He's done or before, and he's not even trying now, is he?
I think he used up his one chance.

Whatever you decide can I suggest you get checked at an std clinic. Not something you have to think about but he obviously cannot be trusted and this is the second time you've caught him which is not necessarily the second time he's cheated.

Meantime the relationship board, as has been suggested, would be a good place to post for help and support with whatever you decide to do.

motherhen83 Fri 27-Dec-13 18:49:25

They r 9,7,5 and 7 months

sykadelic15 Fri 27-Dec-13 18:57:14

Well, you could always look at your phone bill for any random numbers you don't know... but that just asks for hysteria.

If he wasn't cheating he'd've had no problem with the messages. Even if sex didn't take place that msg and subsequent deletion is a huge breach of trust.

If you want to leave, leave. You have every right to be happy and if you aren't happy, then leave. If you can get over the cheating and be happy in the other facets of your life, then stay. Personally I would leave but I would have left the first time.

Iwannalaylikethisforever Fri 27-Dec-13 19:05:26

This behaviour is unacceptable. Swapping numbers with girls!! He is married ffs.
My beliefs are similar, married for life, children have both parents, but.... Not if it meant husband could please himself with who ever he liked.
The doubt and distrust will stay unless you do something.
I hope you sort this out. It's a horrible thing to happen.

Buzzardisnotina4birdroast Fri 27-Dec-13 19:12:26

I think you already have proof. How naive are some people?

Halfrek Sat 28-Dec-13 13:45:03

You have proof that something has happened and that he has no respect for you whatsoever. If he had respect he would not have deleted the messages and would not be lying to you and manipulating you now.
