    I would like to comment on Stephanie and her having an affair. I am 53 years old, and 23 years ago I had an affair with a man who was also married. I was so “high” on this relationship (which only lasted 2 1/2 mths due to my confession to husband), that I not only left my husband, but I also left my 3 children, ages 8, 6, and 2.

    I am still living with the painful consequences of my actions today, 23 years later!!!! NO ONE in my life stepped up to try and bring me into the reality of what I was doing. My mother thought I would just “snap out of it” and so basiclally did nothing, just waiting for her daughter to come to her senses. Not only did I totally ruin my life, but I dramatically ruined my children. They each still have issues today that they have not resolved, with my oldest child being addicted to drugs.

    If you are married, and Especially if you have children, your “happiness” does not come first. That is the modern day cliche, which is straight from Satan. The Damage you are doing is something you have no idea about while you are in this “high phase”. Take advice from someone who has been where you are, and LISTEN to them! Do not be like a spoiled teenager who thinks he knows it all and insists on doing it his way.

    I PROMISE you that if you hang in there, get plenty of Exceptional counseling (and it is Very hard to find a good counselor but be persistant), you will look back and be so thankful that you stayed with the spouse God intended you to be with. As Dave, Jill, and Milan said, no one is perfect, you cannot live in a fantasy world forever, LIFE sets in!! No amount of “high” is worth the regrets and the consequences you will have to live for the rest of your life, and I am not even going through that LONG list now.

    Thank God that He is merciful and grace filled, He will forgive you, but you will find it hard to forgive the wreckage you have created in your selfish wake……I will pray for you Stephanie, you CAN come out of this and your life will be better than it has ever been with God’s help….cry out to Him and get some support!!!!!
