Sleeping with Husband after knowing his cheating on me

by Diana
(San Antonio, TX, USA)

We have been married for 6 1/2 years. I'm getting ready to move out bcus his cheating on me and other issues. I am going to divorce him. But i still love him and i keep having sex with him.

How can i stop? All im doing is hurting myself. The less attention and the less he wants me, the more i want him and I don't understand. I'm waiting and need to step up and do what a women with dignity and respect for herself should do. I just don't know how.

I truly fall for my husband every time. My love is so big for him that I don't care about my own feelings or consequences. Has anyone ever been in a similar situation?

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
