My name is Maria, I am 53 years old, and I have been married for 32 years

Hi there,

I am 53 years old, married to my spouse of 32 years, and go by the name Maria. Our two daughters have moved out from under our roof.

My marriage to my spouse lasted for fifteen years, filled with the normal small problems that arise in any household. We lost our apartment in 1995 as a result of a bank loan.

We had no choice but to move in with my parents because we had two small children.

My spouse and I moved to France three years later, leaving our girls in the care of my parents. After two years of labor, the two of us were able to purchase a home.

We had to leave my husband alone in France while I stayed in Romania with the girls because the house we bought was far from my parents’ home. We visited each other every few months throughout this time and communicated over the phone.

My spouse became someone he could no longer control when another lady entered his life during this period.

He didn’t want us to come see him and even behaved cruelly to our daughters. Both my younger daughter, who still adores her father, and I were taken aback by it. My life felt like an unending nightmare, I stopped eating, had a mental breakdown, and was unable to sleep.

After a few years, I got a job and gradually began to forget my past. After losing his work and running out of money, my husband asked our daughters if he may return home one day.

He kept cheating on me, despite our welcome and forgiveness. Each time I learned about it, it was because he was unable to conceal his extramarital encounters.

After that, he behaved himself for a few years until traveling to Africa, where he naturally met a woman who was younger than his own daughters—24 years old. He currently works in France and visits his family once a month, but he is seeing someone else, a woman 20 years his junior. He doesn’t admit to having this relationship, even after I found out.

Tell me what to do, please.
