I am age 74 and my husband is age 80. We have been married for 14 years after the deaths of our previous spouses. I have recently found out that my husband has been having a sexual affair with a woman for the past 2 years (at least). I do not intend to leave him or do anything to rock the boat as I am fully dependent on him financially. I am very angry about it and am finding it so hard to deal with emotionally. Has anyone any words of advice on how to deal with these feelings.

What does he have to say about it all? Does he want to stay with you?

A lot of couples cannot afford to split up because of financial problems.You need a conversation with him though, about what you will accept / not accept.

If you feel you cannot confront him, can a family member be with you to mediate?

Sorry, I see there is a longer thread on this already.
