What would you do if your spouse cheated on you?
You are married and share at least one biological child. You find out during your marriage your spouse recently had an affair. Your child is young, below the age of 13.
Stay in the relationship and maintain a civil relationship to keep your child from being hurt and having to live apart from one parent at a time?
Would you divorce and split everything including custody?
What would you do?
I was watching Fatal Attraction, and the movie had me thinking about what I would do in the same or similar situation. I wouldn't want my child to go through the pain of seeing his/her parents fight and split-up, but I also know I would hate every minute with my hypothetical husband after that moment. I don't know if I could pretend to be civil for very long, and I certainly wouldn't want to sleep in the same bed.
