Our expert says:
So sorry to hear about all of this - a sad story, though it might yet have some happier endings. Do arange to see a personal counsellor, to help you work through all this and decide what is best for you and your child. You say you need a man companion in your life - but he hardly sounds as though he has been that, for you.
Don't assume that his looking at other women means that somehow you're not good enough - it means that HE's not good enough.
Maybe you do, indeed, feel desperate for the love you realize he has not realy given you. But don't let this lead you into doing things that will further complicate the situation and which would be likely to contain more hurt for you. Work with a counsellor to improve your recognition of your own worth, and plan to either improve this marriage if it can be made satisfactory again, or to leave confident that you;'ll be fine on your own, and work towards a happier situation than this
