So what’s a wife to do when she discovers her husband has had indiscretions and you don’t know just how deep the rabbit hole goes?Not to mention, the feelings of betrayal cut through the heart, severing it in pieces. How do you pick up the pieces of a broken heart and put them back in its place? Betrayal is the death of trust. And I love him. But how could he have done this?

I call my friend and ask her to meet me at a fast food restaurant where our children can play together.
