The situation at hand is complex and emotionally charged. It involves a family with three children, one of which is an infant, and the decision the couple made to separate while the mother was still pregnant.
A Mother’s Second Thoughts
After the baby was born, Rose began to have second thoughts about their separation. Meanwhile, the baby’s father had already developed feelings for a woman he was secretly talking to.
A Painful Discovery
It wasn’t until recently that Rose discovered the father’s emotional affair, which was entirely text-based until that point.
He Was Asking About Next Steps Ahead of the Timeline
She had been wondering why he was so keen on asking about the next steps for their separation.
They had agreed to not to talk about the next steps until after the baby had reached a certain age. The baby wasn’t there yet, but he was still asking!
He Says He Didn’t Want to Hurt Her
When confronted about his infidelity, the father claimed he didn’t want to hurt Rose by telling her.
He also defended himself. He said he had no idea that she had second thoughts, even though she told him multiple times!
She Wonders if He Was Ever Going to Tell Her
Rose is skeptical of his claim. If it were true, he wouldn’t have thought telling her about his affair would hurt her in the first place.
She Wanted to Fix the Relationship
This revelation blindsided her. She was hoping to fix their relationship, especially for the sake of their children.
She Wonders if What They Have Is Real
The father has made no plans to see the other woman, who lives over an hour away, leading Rose to question the sincerity of his feelings for her.
Maybe the father is simply caught up in the excitement of a new relationship and mistaking it for love.
The Other Woman Is Going Through a Divorce
The other woman is also going through a divorce and has a child, which could be a factor in her reluctance to move as fast as the father wants.
His Plans to Move Out
The father had recently talked about moving out, but then changed his mind, citing the baby’s young age as the reason.
The woman believes the father only changed his mind after she found out about the affair, and that his plan was to move out without telling her about the other woman.
She Wonders if She Can Win Him Back
Rose wonders if there is any chance of winning the father back, but if she does, she needs to be in close to him.
They’re Acting Normal at Home
Despite the separation, they are still acting like a family and not telling their children about the impending divorce.
He’s Setting Boundaries
The father has set boundaries regarding conversations about intimacy, and they haven’t been intimate in a long time – even before Rose found out about the affair.
The Financial Dilemma
The financial aspect of the separation is also a concern for them. The father could potentially move in with the other woman to save money.
Should She Try to Fix This?
Rose feels torn between her desire to fix the relationship and the reality of the situation, but she remains hopeful that they can work things out.
