I left my girlfriend whom we have a son together after reading her text messages to her ex husband. The text messages from her was asking him if he missed having sex with her and such. Then one message from him said well you were damn sure intent on sucking my d#@k the other night in my truck.. She replied and you refused. He said because his daughter was around. I have a screen shot if I could post. When I confronted her after moving my things out of her house she said i read the messages wrong and that since nothing happened it wasn’t cheating and that I was wrong for leaving and doing so I was walking out on our son. Was I wrong?
You have a good reason to be upset by this incident. However, what you do in response has a lot to do with what the nature of your relationship had been before this incident. And, since you have a child that you are co-parenting, it may be worth your while to see if this relationship can be healed.
That’s where a trained and skilled therapist can be extremely helpful. An issue this emotionally charged will need a third party who can objectively look at the situation and offer ways that it may be resolved.
And even if the issue cannot be resolved and the relationship cannot be mended, a skilled couples counselor can help you to get to a place where you can co-parent your child effectively. I encourage you to seek out a trained couples’ therapist today.
