let me share with you that as a man, this was one of the toughest experiences of my life. Us guys think that we can pretty
much handle just about anything...and
I guess I can admit...that I had no idea the impact
my wife's unfaithfullness would
have on my life.
was one of those men that believed that we had a forever plan. You know, a plan
future, raise our kids together, rent out our property and retire with a
coming in, and that our promise to each other saying for better or for
worse would mean
that neither one of us had to ever worry about experiencing
that "cheating" thing that
many of our friends had happen to them.
Well, needless to say I was in for the shock
of my life. Discovering that my wife

of that!" I'll tell ya...I sure wish they had said something. That one I will never
figure out. The good news is....even after all I have been through, I have finally been able
to move forward in my life...I have met my true soulmate, and am happier than I ever imagined
I could be. I am looking forward to sharing with you how Angel and I met, and how we have managed
to build a wonderful life
