I just found this site. I'm new to this group and need guidance.

Hi, I just found out my husband of 25 years is bisexual.  He recently cheated on me with another man. Looking back, there were some signs he had an interest in men but growing up in the 70's and 80's this subject was foreign to both of us.   I have no one to talk to about this and I'm looking for guidance.  I love him, I actually feel for him that this has been a part of him that he has hidden from the world.  We have 3 children together.  We were seemingly happy but bills and finances have always been a burden.  I caught him in an affair.  He says he is committed to me and the children but I wonder how long that will last.  I have the utmost respect for him as a person and I will never be the person who holds him back from his happiness so I'm questioning myself on being supportive and married, or just letting him go.  I can take care of myself (and by that I don't mean I'm well off or financially secure, on the contrary, we live paycheck to paycheck.  But I can manage on my own, I'm no burden and my kids are 22, 20 and 16).  I'd like to be open and support my husband and who he is and I want to know if anyone else has found a way to make their marriage work.  I'd just like to find a wife in a similiar situation that I talk to.  I have a very loving extended family and yet this, for me, is to much to share at the moment.  I do love my husband very much.  Kindly, Beth
