MS - have you read the official MB discussion about it, or Surviving an Affair?

Have you read ark's "get grounded here" thread?

The quickest description I can give is this - imagine how you'd treat your wife if she was crazy, and you knew she was crazy, and her insanity caused her to treat you horribly, but you knew it would go away after a few months.

And imagine, furthermore, that your wife's madness was built on a distorted view of you, a delusion about you that magnified your faults and ignored your strengths.

You would be kind and patient with her while you waited for the insanity to pass, and you would do all you could to break down her delusion about you by not doing anything that reinforced it.

Now, it is not that simple, but I'm just trying to establish the mindset.

If OM is married, you should contact OMW and encourage her to tell her friends and in-laws. If not, hm. Not sure.

Om is not married, and just purchased a home with his father, Should I inform his friends and family and work and co-workers?

The only way you will grasp a full understanding of the concepts here is to read the book Surviving An Affair and the other books written by Williard Harley. You can order them via this website or check your local library or book store. Also read the concepts on Plan A and Plan B that are on this site as well as the rest of all the articles on this site.

Do not rely solely on answers to threads you start. Get the info straight from Dr. Harley's writings. You will get a better idea of exactly what you should be doing. Your marriage is depending on it.
Good luck to you!
