Our expert says:
This doesn't sound like Bipolar Disorder, and more like a personality disorder, perhaps exaggerated in how it expresses itself
In Bipolar Disordeer, there are episodes when the mood moves down into a severe depression, and on other occasions, up into a hypmanic mood, each lasting for a significant number of days, even months. It is NOT a condition that explains someone having an unpredictably and very rapidly changeable mood.
But I don't know what we are dealing with here - if I understood what you said, you have not sent a description of your actual husband, but a copy of what someone else said, describing someone else. Why don't you write about your OWN experience of your OWN husband ?
And Bipolar Disorder is NOT, EVER, caused by finding your spouse in bed with someone else, though obviously that would be very upsetting and could cause other problems. A dificulty with Bipolar Disorder is that the mood swings occur for chemical reasons, and not in respopnse to easily recognizeable events in daily life.
It sounds as though the person being described is misleading his psychiatrist, and we don't know what diagnosis has actually been made, or what treatment has actually been given.
