A DEVASTATED wife found out her husband was cheating on her while she was pregnant with their baby – but more infuriating than that was the reason he gave.
The mum explained that she noticed that he was spending a lot of time with his work female colleague during her pregnancy.
Taking to Reddit, she said: “I had told him for months that I didn’t feel comfortable with their relationship.
“They were talking on the phone more than he talked to me and they were spending time together outside of work – more time together than we did.
“He made me feel like I was being jealous and insecure for no reason. I was pregnant at the time so I was already feeling insecure.
“I didn’t want to be a controlling spouse so I left it alone.”
It was four months after their baby girl was born that she found out he had, in fact, been sleeping with his colleague.
The woman explained that she confronted him, but he only offered a few “stupid” reasons as to why he had been unfaithful.
Signs someone may be having a workplace affair
There’s no hard and fast way to know if your partner is cheating but her are some of the red flags to watch out for…
- They’re staying late or going into work on weekends
- They choose to go to every work social rather than spend time with you (and they never invite you)
- They keep bringing up their work wife/husband
- They’re more secretive and cagey – particularly with their phone
- They suddenly put more effort into their appearance for work
- Their sexual behaviours change in some way
- They keep having weekend trips with colleagues
- Something feels off in their behaviour
She said: “He said it was because our baby shared a bed with us so he didn’t get to ‘cuddle’ me as much.
“He said I was tired because of the baby and I didn’t want to watch TV with him.
“I just can’t get over how f***ing stupid it all is. To gaslight me for so long; to lie to my face; it just seems like such a waste of time.”
The woman said that she had considered leaving but was worried she wouldn’t be able to financially support the baby without her husband’s help.
She said: “I want to be separated. But finances are so tight. I left my job to be with the baby.
“He was the one who wanted me to get pregnant. But he didn’t touch me for most of our pregnancy because ‘it’s weird’. Our daughter deserves better.”
Fellow Reddit users were outraged by the woman’s treatment at the hands of her cheating husband.
One said: “Nothing will change until his why changes. These are not valid reasons to cheat.
“There are only two reasons. Because he wanted to. Because he could.”
Another agreed: “Blaming the entire cheating on you. None of it is your fault. It is 100 per cent his fault.”
