ion of your husband's personality sounds very much like
that of the psychopath (or sociopath). Please go online to the Hare
Checklist for Psychopathy and read more about
that personality and
what it is like and can do. Unfortunately, there is no cure for that
disorder, and the individual doesn't benefit from psychotherapy.
If I were in your shoes, I would seriously consider talking to a
your living situation and determine whether it is worth your continued effort to support and sustain a marriage in which your partner will never change his behavior. They never do, you know,
and they will take advantage of every opportunity to satisfy themselves at the expense of anyone or anything around them. Their lifestyle is parasitic.
Those are two very discouraging paragraphs, I realize, but it's best to face the truth as you are doing than to simmer in an unhappy marriage.
Those who tell you that it's your decision are exactly right. You owe it to yourself and your children to learn if this man is really capable of being a truthful and faithful person. Your and the childrens' well-being should come first from now on, in my view.
Your being happy is so important for the children, as well.
Please get to the bottom of your situation with help from professional
people who know all about
your husband's difficulties. They may lead you into a wonderful new life for the children and you.
Take care; let us know what you decide to do and how things fare in the future.
