Nearly ruined a marriage, and my life
About 4 years ago I had an affair with the husband of an acquaintance of mine. It went on for a couple months. I knew things were tense between them, and that they were having trouble conceiving.
To make matters worse, I got pregnant after we were a little casual about condom use. I told him and waited a couple weeks to figure out my options, but he decided to tell her about the affair and my pregnancy--I know she was devastated. He then came to me and said he wanted to leave her and raise our child together.
I avoided him until the next week when I had an abortion, then texted him after explaining it would never work.
I've heard they've since split up, but probably for many reasons. It was a rough time, but I'm proud of the life I have today and may have a kid with the right person one day.
