He Won't Leave His Wife

Group Therapy: He Won't Leave His Wife

This question comes from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

Two years ago I divorced my husband after 10 difficult years of marriage. I reconnected with a man I went to college with on a social network when he began asking me questions about how to get divorced. He wanted to know what steps to take.

We became pretty good friends and spoke or emailed every day. A few months later he told me he finally did it, he told her it was over. They put the house on the market and as soon as it sold she and the kids were moving to another state with her family. Shortly after that we got together. It was an intense, passionate relationship from the start for both of us. He spoke about our future together, how he couldn't wait, our plans to travel . . .

It all sounded so perfect. He told me how he has cheated on everyone he has ever been with but it's different with me, I am his lover and his best friend. Two years later nothing has changed.

He is still living with his wife, telling me financially he can't afford to get a divorce. He still wants to be with me but it's not the right time and if I really loved him I'd wait. We do travel together and see each other once a week (we are in different states) but it's not good enough. I can't move on until things end with him but I can't seem to make that happen. I really do love him, or maybe I just love what I think I had. HELP!
