Our expert says:
Taking your own life is not the solution. I know you feel that you can't cope with the situation and that it is causing so much emotional pain now that you see no way out. However, taking your life will just hurt other innocent people who love you and it will not solve the problem. It may even cause severe emotional damage to your parents or siblings or children. At the moment your wife may be feeling hurt and insecure due to what happened, but these feelings will also pass with time. You can ask her forgiveness and ask her to give you time to show her that she can indeed trust you. And be patient as it may take a while for the trust to build up again. If you have a history of depression, discuss medication with your doctor to help you cope with the feelings of anxiety and sadness. You can also see a marriage counsellor/your pastor (with your wife or even alone) to help you through this crisis.
