I think I am in a hopeless situation. I've been married for 16 years to a man I never really loved. I've always had low self esteem when it comes to my body, having been fairly fat for years, so when he wanted to marry me I just figured he was a nice guy and I probably couldn't do any better. Needless to say I always felt unloved and our marriage hasn't been very warm. To compensate I had 7 kids. Today I am in love with someone else. Sadly he is also married, and though his wife has some very severe problems - which brought us together as very good friends - he still loves her. He says he loves me as well. In any case he has 6 kids so there is no real option for a mutual future.
I feel trapped and hopeless. I can't stand it when my husband even touches me anymore. He knows how I feel and we are seeing a marriage counselor. Still, I don't love him so what's the point?
