I’m Forbidden From Attending My Stepson’s Birthday Party

Navigating the tumultuous waters of betrayal can lead one to make decisions in the heat of the moment. In today’s story, one woman found herself grappling with a whirlpool of emotions. But what follows next wasn’t something she was expecting.

She shared the whole story.
This is the dumbest thing that’s ever happened to me in my entire life. This past Sunday, my husband and I were on our boat together. We were just relaxing and talking and having a good morning. All of a sudden, my husband gets really serious and tells me “Baby, I’m so sorry, but I have to tell you something. I’m so sorry, please forgive me, I had an affair.”

For context, my husband thinks he’s a comedian. He says dumb stuff all the time, but he’s never joked about our marriage or relationship or cheating, ever. The way he said it, I fully believed him.

I was blinded by rage and hurt, and I’m not a confrontational person at all so all I did was stand up, take my rings off, and throw them into the ocean. I don’t even know why I did it, it was just the first thing I thought of doing.

My husband’s jaw hit the floor. He immediately started to yell at me that it was a joke, a prank, he wasn’t serious, and I was an idiot. My jaw dropped then too. I yelled at him too and called him the same. I cried too, realizing I had just thrown my lovely and sentimental rings into the ocean.

We’ve been arguing for days. He says I’m a jerk, I say he’s a jerk, and I have no idea who’s right. Yes, admittedly I threw about 10 k worth of rings into the ocean, and we will never find them again — but he looked me in my eyes and told me he had an affair. I am upset about my rings. I’ve apologized for throwing them. But I just don’t feel like a jerk.
