God, please restore my marriage and family!
My husband and I have been married 10 years. We have two children, ages 9 and 8, and our youngest daughter is in Heaven, but would be 5.
We lost her to mitochondrial disease 4 years ago. That's when his current affair started. This other woman, who he worked with for 7 years until earlier this year, organized the benefit for us when our daughter was diagnosed, and had a picture tapestry with pictures of all of us made when she passed.
I suspected for quite a while but found out for sure when I found out he was seeing divorce lawyers 3 months ago. Now he is sleeping at her house almost every night and lying to the kids about it. He's caught up in limerence with her.
He knows the Bible better than most, and he says he knows what he's doing is wrong but he feels he can't live without her. He says he loves me and doesn't want to hurt me. I have been a stay at home, homeschooling mom throughout our marriage. I am devastated.
I think he plans to file soon. We went to a marriage workshop 2 weeks ago (he didn't want to) and he seemed to be thinking about things for a little while, but now he seems to be hardening back up again.
Please pray for us and for my husband's relationship with God! I didn't think anything would ever hurt worse than losing our daughter, but this does.
