I think I always knew

My husband of 6 years told me the words I knew were coming, but still dreaded. He was cheating on me.

I married my husband in '04. Before that we had been dating for 3 years straight, and, prior to a breakup that lasted 4 1/2 months, we dated for 5 years. But, that breakup is still fresh in my mind. I'd found out he was cheating on me, and of course, it was splitsville for us. At the end of those 4 1/2 months, he came back asking for me to forgive what he had done.I did, and you know what followed that. But recently, he was acting odd, going away at strange times, sometimes not coming home for days. And then, I found another girl's stuff in his car. I confronted him, and at first he denied it, but soon more evidence was poping up, and my husband of 6 years told me the words I knew were coming, but still dreaded. He was cheating on me. With the same girl as before. They had never broken up. I leaned in and kissed him after that, which shocked my dear hubby tremendously. When I pulled back from the kiss, I slapped him and walked out. That was the last time I saw the man who broke my heart. But for some reason, I think I always knew it was coming.
