I cheated on my husband. It’s been 2 weeks and I’ve been

I cheated on my husband. It’s been 2 weeks and I’ve been destroyed with guilt. I know he will never find out and I will never do this again. I don’t know what to do. If I tell him, I know he will leave me but I can’t deal with what I’m feeling. Once I started to have sex with this man, I felt awful, told him to stop and he didn’t. I want to come clean but my mom’s wedding is in 3 days and I can’t have this overpower anything. I want to stick it out and spare him this hurt. I don’t know what to do. I love him so so much.

@jchere I agree. She seems to feel genuinely remorseful and telling her husband would cut out his heart and leave it on the ground.

Learn from this mistake. Find out what made you seek comfort with someone other than your husband and then take precautions to NEVER allow yourself to be put in that situation again.

I am all about honesty, but in this particular case I would counsel ignorance is bliss since she seems genuinely remorseful about it and it only happened the 1 time which she immediately regretted.

@Anaethema Thanks...amazing how many folks think not telling is simply wrong. Yes most of the time it is best to be honest. The reality is that the cheater is either going to stop or they are is up to them to fix themselves.

@jchere You are welcome. I would say that honesty is the best policy about 99% of the time but this could be the rare instance where she should not tell her husband and use this as an opportunity to become a better person. It will save her husband an untold amount of emotional agony and she seems genuinely remorseful so most likely won't do it again.

If I find out she cheated again in the future I am going to lose ALL hope I ever had that humans can learn from their mistakes and become better because of it.
