Someone boobed and opened this forum much earlier than they had agreed, so it's only by accident that I have discovered your message and been able to answer it during my "holiday" !
Isn't the real basis of this problem that apparently the two of you are living apart ? Is there no possibiolity that you could move to Joburg and be with him there, or that he could move back to you ? He may be feeling lonely and frustrated, and may feel that a cyber-relationship is less unfaithful than actually having a physical affair. Marriage counselling would also be a good idea, if you can be in the same place long enough to make this practical

Dear CS,The first time when it happened he was at home.-2005. We went for counselling.And we worked on our relationship and everything was great.He work as a contractor in JHB.Now last year he did the same thing. Cyber-relationship. Said to me he had stop it.Promise me it' s over with last women 2008.I have to stay in cape-We' ve got our own business which I have to run. With all the responsibilities.(home &  bus)And the house market is very bad.So back to hubby, will he really stop to contact this woman?Or rather cyber-contact.I was so sick the whole Dec.Every day diarrhea of stress-uncertainties.I love him so much.How can I trust him again?Because i don' t want to divorce him.

Funny, my boyfriend and I just split up a few days ago, over him having a telephonic relationship with another woman, and he does not see it as cheating, he promised not to do it again, but I found out he still was...... had to end the relationship because I spent every second moment thinking about who the other woman on the line was, when was he calling, for how long, it' s very tiring and hurtful.

I cant say what you should do, but for me, I had to let go

Hi, Just think about this: Do you want to grow old and feel bitter &  miserable about the life you wasted worrying about a man that " cheats"  on you, or do you want to grow old and be happy? The rest of your answers will follow.
