I am physically sick right now. Yes I don't trust him and have been checking his email.

Now that sucks! I am so sorry you're having to deal with this....I, too, don't really know what to say....but let it rip here! Vent away! Have you confronted him, yet? If verbal confrontation is difficult, perhaps you could put it on paper....by checking his email, have you been suspicious or was this a complete surprise?

Sending you hugs,
Nancy

I am so sorry that you are having to go through this. Nobody deserves this type of treatment. Confront him. Make copies of whatever you have as far as emails. He will try to deny it, or say that you are paranoid or something. Have evidence.
You are worth better treatment than this and you did not cause this.
LOVE AND HUGS,
Sybil

Excuse my language but what an ASS!!! You should sign up too with fake everything and meet up with him. I'd love to see his face when you sat down. Sending many {{{{{Hugs}}}}}}

Oh Vicki I too am at a loss for words that kind of betrayal would be quite painful. I agree that counseling at least for you to help you find a way to constructively deal with this is a good idea. I am sending virtual cyber hugs and as you can see we are circling the wagons of support around you, hope you feel the love!

BIG GIGANTIC LOVING HUGS,

I'm so sorry to hear you have to go thru this on top of everything else. Please talk with a counselor about your sanity and emotional stability. I'm also thinking that if you've gotten emails or other evidence of what's going on, maybe you could gather that, copy it then stop looking for more. I'm afraid having to continue finding evidence will just be harder on you than you need.

Prayers and angels surrounding you as you navigate this issue.

I know it must breaking into thousand pieces but if you ask me, it's DEFINITELY
his loss!!! You are such a sweet, caring and witty Lady. He'll be searching for
some time to find the likes of you. So you hold you head up high and don't let
him hurt you. YOU are our precious sister and we love you too much to see you
get hurt.

I am giving you a HUUUUUGE HUG!

PS: Would you like me to punch his lights out (;

Unbelievable. I just heaved a DEEP sigh on your behalf. My thoughts are with you. Like others have suggested I agree with confronting him with what you have found out. Be prepared for denials, lies, etc. Think 1st if you want to go to counseling or go the lawyer route. What an awful situation to be in.

I am so sorry you have to deal with this. Emotional infidelity is just as bad and worse than a physical one. Which it doesn't sound as if it's progressed that far yet?

Have you asked him why?

As painful as it is, you may be surprised by his answer if he's willing to talk about it. It could be the opener for much needed dialogue from him.

As for your snooping through his email - well, you're his wife that's kinda' just your job. Too bad if he doesn't like it, he knew that would be part of marriage. And if he didn't--he knows now!

Hugs and hopes for it all working out for you.

If not, then I'm up for punching his lights out too!!!

I know the term "decent guy" isn't a big part of your vocabulary right now, and I don't blame you. Still, I'm sorry to hear that he turned out to be such a Weiner. Kick his ass and move on.

I know your the only one seen his emails and I'm not taking up for him at no means is he actually "wanting" the person? or is it just conversational? Ladies I'm not sure if you realized it but our spouses go through also my Dr. told me my husband would have a harder time than me think about it they think they'll loose there life long partner maybe he's scared I mean I'm grasping at straws right now this is unbelievable what could be worst than the cancer,WE NEED TO LOAD THE PINK BUS FOR HIM AND GO BEAT THE "ASHES" out of him and ask him do he know what he's doing and boy the timing of a mid life crisis. I'm just saying ! this really gets my goat. mollyz

I almost hate to post this, but you may want to print out some of the emails and put them somewhere safe in case you need them later.... As soon as you talk to him, he will probably change his email password and then you wont know what is going on....

I would almost be tempted to make my own profile under a fake name and contact him to see how he responds.....

Oh, I am so sorry to hear this.

I am playing devil's advocate, but it doesn't sound like he has done anything, yet.

He is probably feeling VERY scared and powerless. Hard feelings for men.

If you love him and he is worth it, talk to him. Tell him WHATEVER he is feeling is OKAY.
Tell him you love him.

So sorry that he thought this was the right thing to do. Been through a divorce, don't wish it on my worst enemy (well maybe my ex) but you have to do what is right for you.

The thought of you going through this makes my heart hurt,

How did he think he could get away with a thing like that. My theory is "Don;t get mad, get even!".

I am so so sorry to hear what you are going through. I don't know you or your relationship, but my gut response is that you should print the "evidence" (as someone suggested you don't know if you will need it), then confront him and talk about it. Depending on what comes out of the confrontation, you either work it out or kick him out. That is what you owe yourself. My thoughts are with you.

I would confront him but wait just awhile.Make sure it is starting to go somewhere and then put a stop to it. Like someone said he can be more private about it and you will never know what is being said.

This is very dangerous.You have no idea who you meet on line.Those he may be e-mailing could be married also. What a dangerous situation or it could be a woman who prowels alot.All I can say is today women look for men who are secure in their jobs, have a home and money saved.Usually it is younger women looking for older men who are established.Why would they want a guy their own age???? They still have kids to support and usually don't own their own home.

Like others say I am very sorry too.Ive seen alot of flirting my husband does but I do know he won't cheat. We go everywhere together.BUT the women he flirts with thinks he will.Then I get their crap because I am in the way. They've even done things to try and get me to move out.I ignore it and turn the other cheek.I never give those kind what they want. I actually pretend they don' exist.It truly truly works and me and my husband NEVER go where they are.

Every one of them aren't pretty so I guess if a man give them attention they are flattered.LOL.

Maybe I missed something but wondered how long you have been married???And do you think the cancer thing is causing him to change???I know a man close to where I live dx with colon cancer.His wife a nurse left him.She couldn;t take it but yet he stood by her when she had breast cancer.She told him she couldn't bare to watch him die.Who said he was going to die????? May live longer than her.Nothing is for sure.

Married 31 years. He got caught. A friend of his sister is on the same board and told his sister. Sis came down the other day and had a long talk with him. His sister informed me of the talk but I won't go into it. He thinks I don't know anything and that is the way it is staying. sister said he was really embarrased to find out the friend (actually a friend of his too) knows what he did.

I think you are handling it good and I am glad you have some others that are concerned.I bet he is ashamed and humiliated and very sorry.Do what you feel is right.Remember what they say.Would you be better with out without him>???? 31 years is a long time.My husband and I have been married 42 years and NO one will break us up.

Sweet Vicki, I'm so so sorry that you are having to deal with this after 31 years of marriage. Nobody deserves this. Make sure you handle this in the way that works best for you. It is going to be hard but whatever road you choose to follow is perfectly okay. There are no right or wrong choices. Hang in there and try to remember how strong you are. You made it through cancer treatments and you will get through this whether you choose to end it, reconcile, or just to take it one day at a time.

I have to agree with Joe (Aortus) - he is a total Weiner.
