just cant figure it out

my 63 year old husband left me and our 2 children for his brothers widow and her 2 small children. I asked him if he loves her and he told me he loves the whole family. He and I have been married for 35 years. What should I expect out of this. It is so damn ridiculous!


Noel's response

I don't know the answer to your question. It could be a midlife transition, it could be infatuation with a (younger?) woman. It could be that he has liked this sister-in-law for a long time, and now that she is a widow he sees an opportunity to be with her.

My only suggestion for you is to pick up the pieces and move on with your life as best you can.
