Right, I'm a long-time MNer but have NC as I'm very recognisable in RL from my normal posting name. Want to protect my friend's privacy.

I received a text this morning from a close friend that her DH has just left her. He met someone on holiday a few weeks ago and he thinks he's in love. He's moved out of their place. She is in complete shock.

I'm heading to see her once I finish work, but I'm hoping you lovely Relationship board regulars can help me/her with some practicalities.

What can she expect to be feeling over the coming days/weeks/months? If he follows the same script as all the other fucking twat asshole thundercunts men who have affairs, what is he likely to do? How is he likely to behave and what does she need to be ready for? How should she be behaving with him?

Also, what does she need to do to protect herself financially? He earns extremely well, they don't have any kids, they live in a property owned by him, she has just sold a business so is only doing part-time consulting at the moment for work as they were looking start start TTC later this year sad sad

I want to be able to offer her emotional support, but I'd love to also be able to help her predict that madness that is now likely to ensue so that she can protect herself as well as is possible in this hideous situation.

Thanks lovelies thanks
