Our expert says:
Sorry to hear that your husband has been cheating through the marriage --- this is NOT what happens to verybody. Saying he's sorry is ovbviously insincere and meaningless, and as you apparently repeatedly forgive him, he probably assumes that you are prepared to tolerate this indefinitely. Don't copy your husband's infidelity, and remain aware that you are especially vulnerable due to your husband's consistent bad behaviour. Marriage counselling might help, but only if he would willingly and genuinely take part, which seems unlikely. Rather see a counsellor on your own to work on assertiveness and enhancing your low self-esteem, and work towards making a plan to look after your own best interests, which does NOT lie within accepting, excusing, and believing his silly excuses.
