Let’s draw out the perspectives here.
Both of you are married and when you had the chance, you didn’t tell each other.
Now, you have discovered that ‘missed out’ moment and want to make up for it now when families have grown.
How would you advise a friend, if he came to you with this situation?
Would you ask him to leave his family and move in with his lady love? Would you ask him to forget his familial responsibilities and search for love outside?
Again, it is not for me to give you solutions but to lead you to a place where you can find the solution yourself.
So, now that you friend has moved in with his lady love, will he forget his family?
His son for who he will always be a role model? Also, what will he tell his wife who had no role to play into the storm in her life?
The key is that there are 4 mature adults and I guess it’s time for you and the lady that you love to sit down and discuss what happens if you continue in your marriages or move away.
Discuss with your respective spouses as well, as they need to be party to this so that their thoughts and feelings are taken into consideration.
After all, they came into your lives, to become life partners. Whatever the decision, always bear in mind, if you continue in your marriage, do it with full heart as you need to rebuild it and if you move away, your son and his state of mind must be cared for, so make sure you create a wonderful environment for them and care for their needs always.
Also, ask yourself this: What will I lose if I move away from my marriage? What is it that I truly love in my wife?
Life is filled with temptations and sometimes we want some change, some spark…it’s possible in the existing relationship only if you choose to look at it that way. Ultimately, the decision is yours, but there’s a lot to consider and reconsider.
Go deep into a reflective mode and choose.
They are encouraged to take a break every once in a while, to rejuvenate so they can do more and feel less exhausted.
It is pretty normal for women to lose interest in sex for a few weeks or perhaps months after the baby is born as the hormones now secreted elude her away from simply being a wife and the loving mother takes over.
This can cause a lot of rift between the new parents as the man obviously is not aware of this fact.
A book can throw more light on this and I cannot be more emphatic and say this here that it helps when the woman doesn’t have to worry about her husband and focus on bonding with the child which is of utmost importance for the development and growth of the baby.
Besides, there are other forms of affection/intimacy that can be explored so the new parents still manage to keep the spark alive.
The fact of your wife having a parallel life at her work place has become a dampener in your mind as she is definitely able to have a social life at least part of the day whereas you are not.
I do suggest you cook up some ‘Me Time’ over the weekends when your wife can bond with the baby and you can meet friends and simply unwind so that you back with a renewed vigour as the week begins.
And, it is possible to make friends at any age. Anyone who shares common interests and hobbies, can become a part of your inner circle.
It is apparent that both of you have lost communication and either your wife is unaware about how you feel or maybe she is going through something that you don’t know of.
If she isn’t comfortable going to a professional, take charge and revive your communication. Babies can demand a lot of time from their parents and if you can have someone trustworthy to watch the baby for a couple of hours over the weekend, where you and your wife can have some time to yourselves, that might help.
We can go on struggling or we can step up and do something about it. So, give it your best for yourself and your family.
Happy Bonding and have a great life!
I seriously don’t understand how he goes from being gay to straight all of a sudden.
If he is convinced that he is straight, have there been any moments of intimacy between the two of you or is this a façade that he is putting to avoid the glares of society and its cruel backlash?
If you feel that there is still hope, would you be willing to dull in your mind, what had happened and then appeal to him to start afresh?
Or has that boat already sailed?
I do believe in second chances and if his claims that he is straight are true and you feel that you acted in haste about leaving the relationship, why don’t you reach out to him and request him for a chance for both of you to work on getting back together?
There is no point in feeling sorry or guilty. What helps is doing something that might help you in the direction of what you want.
So, get into that action mode and do what needs to be done. Your confidence solely lies in moving ahead into a solution mode. So, what are you waiting for?
Thank you for reading my content. Hope it helps.
I can only imagine the trap that you are in. So, why are you choosing to be trapped even further?
If the answer to the above is NO, then time to break out of your so-called traditional mindset.
Do you really want to live in this set-up and have your son grow up unstable?
I am sure that as a mother you do want to provide him with a stable and loving environment.
Then, you need to think differently about your old beliefs and see if they are worth holding onto.
The older generation might have held onto marriages even if they were abusive. But things have changed.
Even if you are not financially independent, there are venues to change that. You only need to change the way you think.
Check with yourself if continuing this way is going to give you anything great in return or is it going to steal your spirit away.
The choice is yours but do know that you have a son to take care of as well.
Start by gaining a good circle of supporters that includes your parents and close friends who can help you through this massive change to enable you take charge of your life.
All the best!
