We have been married for 9 years with a 3 yr old daughter. I had Post Partum Depression after our child was born and became sexually distant with my husband. After getting on the right medicine things have been better for the past 6 months. I just found out over the past month my husband and a very close friend have been having a texting sexual relationship. It went on for 3 weeks, after the girl told her husband about it. My husband has apologized and told me it started off as a joke but went too far. We live 1500 miles away from them so no in person contact happened. He has deleted her from all his contacts and said it will never happend again. I love my husband very much but feel lost and betrayed. How do I move past this?
