    To My Husband Had and Affair and Now She’s Pregnant: Angel my heart poured out to you and tears streamed down my face as I listened to you speak about your situation. Knowing the pain and heartache you are experiencing from going through a similar situation myself. I just want to encourage you I know that right now it may look and feel like you life is falling apart and there is no hope. BUT GOD….WE WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT….And if God brings you to it He WILL bring you through it I promise you that!! PRAY PRAY PRAY and PRAY some more. I found the book “Power of a Praying Wife,” to be helpful as well as “Power of a Praying Husband,” to learn how to pray for myself more efficiently. You will heal from this and on the other side of the mountain is a stronger more powerful you…You will be in my prayers…Feel free to contact me if you need to talk.

    In response to Angel, my husband cheated on me 14 years ago and a product of this affair was a child. He begged me to take him back, we had 2 grade school children at that time. I had just gotten over ovarian cancer, chemo. , the whole bit…lost my hair. By the grace of God, I am a survivor! well, I thought our marriage was pretty good after that, he said he wanted nothing to do with them. I truly believed in him, told no one, NO ONE, and neither dd he. Angel, I just want you to get help, I didn’t. I held it all in. Unfortunately, I never set boundries, and 2 years ago he left me, our kids for them. Yes, he lied over and over. I do not want you to go through the same thing, get help. make him go through a program, set boundries. You can contact me if you want.
