I need some help because I just don't know what to do.
DH and I work at the same place for a man and his wife that we've known intimately for several years now. We used to go to church with them but don't any longer as we have just started our own church in another city but we still are very good friends.
He came over to the house last night to tell us that he has been having an affair with one of the women in their church - whom we also now and are good friends with.
His wife knows, his daughters know (they have 3 with the youngest being 15), his inlaws know, the Pastor of the church knows, the woman's husband knows, etc., etc., etc.
We are devastated and I can't help but feel as though if we are this devastated how they must feel. I deal with him very closely at work and he has been miserable all day - crying everytime he's on the phone with me.
I don't know what to do. I called his wife this morning and she is very, I don't know how to explain it, well, I guess her attitude and response was along the lines of "oh well, stuff happens I guess". Obviously she is hurt, angry, disappointed, devastated, etc., but she is a very closed person and won't let you close no matter what's going on.
I just feel so helpless and wondered if anyone had any ideas as to how DH and I could help this family who has been torn apart.
Thanks for letting me put it on "paper"......it's just so sad.
