Long winded, but detailed:
I caught mine having an emotional affair 3 months ago. I logged onto his myspace to check and see if he had answered a mutual friend of ours back, plus I had a gut feeling, and I found messages he forgot to delete between him and his ex-girlfriend. He later told me that it was better that I found them before things got out of hand, so he was thankful. They had been talking for 5 months, but I asked him to stop talking to her on the phone, and he didn't listen. On the days that he had off and I'd be working he was talking to her on the phone and messaging her. The messages I did read said from her, "don't forget to erase these messages so she doesn't see them." He said, "we'll see what the future brings for us, you make me feel alive and make life worth living, i love you..." and there were picture comments he sent her, one said, "you hold the key to my heart." I know there was more, but that's all I could stomach. I was crushed. At first I thought it was a joke. I called him home from a friend's house very calmly. He came home and I let him have it. I hit him on the arm, and didn't hold back with the words, and showed him what I had found. He thought of leaving, but I told him this was normal. Men go through the 7 year itch and a mid life crisis, and other older women from longer marriages I had talked to, friends of mine, had said it was normal. He held me that evening for about 2 hours while I just cried. He was still unsure, but when he went to work the next day he asked his boss that is older and has been married 18 years his opinion if it was normal. His boss said yes, it's normal, in fact his wife has been packed and ready to leave more times than he could count, and honestly he thought my hubby was throwing himself a pity party because he didn't realize what he had in the wife he has. He came home that day and we talked things through, and he had to see how it hurt me up close. I didn't eat much for 2 weeks. I told him from the beginning of our marriage that I didn't think we should throw away a good friendship over things that may come up, and to be honest with me. We've known each other since we were 11, almost 33 now. Even though he wasn't honest with me, I told him I was willing to forgive him if he was willing to work on our marriage and communication. I realize no marriage is perfect. Since it happened on a Friday, and thus over a weekend, I told him that if we were to fix things that I thought he needed to cut ties with her that Sunday night so we could start over fresh that Monday. A new week, a fresh start. I sat and watched as he typed to her, no more communication: "...Due to the fact that I was caught I can not throw away my family over this...I'm sorry for leading you on..." I only asked him to add that last sentence, there was more he typed. I understand that he led us both on. He led me to believe there was nothing wrong, and he led her to believe there was a possibility for them. We are doing very well now. He effected our oldest son, 10 1/2 year old, very much. He knew the woman's name, and knew what was going on. The 6 year old had no clue, just that we were upset. I had our oldest son take his concerns to his father. That we they were open with each other and hubby could see how effects everyone in the family, not just us. I also promised to hubby not to tell our family, so they wouldn't look at him differently. It is just something that happened, we've moved on, grown from it. He doesn't need the constant reminder. He feels bad enough already. He hates making mistakes.
How long does it take to read all of Homestuck?
It depends on how fast you read. I read super quickly and got through acts 1-5 in just under week (during winter break last year). If it took you a few days to read act one it might take you a month to catch up (the comic updates regularly, it updated just a few minutes ago). But take your time to read it because every word is important.
Please can anyone recommend me a good book to read?
Little Brother by Cory Doctorow. I read this months and months ago, but i can still really love this book. It's not fantasy and has got violence and some sex in it. It is certainly worth a read.
Marcus, a.k.a “w1n5t0n,” is only seventeen years old, but he figures he already knows how the system works - and how to work the system. Smart, fast, and wise to the ways of the networked world, he has no trouble outwitting his high school's intrusive but clumsy surveillance systems.
But his whole world changes when he and his friends find themselves caught in the aftermath of a major terrorist attack on San Francisco. In the wrong place at the wrong time, Marcus and his crew are apprehended by the Department of Homeland Security and whisked away to a secret prison where they're mercilessly interrogated for days.
When the DHS finally releases them, Marcus discovers that his city has become a police state where every citizen is treated like a potential terrorist. He knows that no one will believe his story, which leaves him only one option: to take down the DHS himself.
The Maze Runner and its sequel The Scorch Trials by James Dashner. I have not read The Maze Runner yet, but i do have to book and am about to start reading it. It's been on my TBR list for a while now. I think you might like it.
When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he's not alone. When the lift's doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade - a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.
Just like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they've closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.
Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up - the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers.
Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.
Have you read the Cherub series by Robert Muchamore? It is a really fantastic series. I started reading them when i was around 12 years old and i still adore them. The first few books are a little younger, but as the characters grow up so does the reading material.
The first book in the series is The Recruit:
A terrorist doesn't let strangers into her flat because they might be undercover police, but her children bring their mates home. She doesn't know that a kid has bugged her house. The kid works for CHERUB. CHERUB kids slip under adult radar and get information that sends criminals to jail.
Inheritance series by Christopher Paolini. My little sister got me into these. Very heavy on the fantasy and can be hard to get through some chapters, but still good.
The first book in the series is Eragon:
In Alagaësia, a fifteen-year-old boy of unknown lineage called Eragon finds a mysterious stone that weaves his life into an intricate tapestry of destiny, magic, and power, peopled with dragons, elves, and monsters. Beautifully written and taut with suspense, Eragon is the first installment in an epic fantasy trilogy about a 15-year-old farm boy who discovers his destiny as a Dragon Rider.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan. The first book in the series is The Lightning Thief:
Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can't seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse-Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. When Percy's mom finds out, she knows it's time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he'll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends -- one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena -- Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.
