My husband was having an affair for 10 months before I found out. Eventually it came to light that not only had he had this affair but he had also made my son party to the affair and forced my son to keep it a secret from me between August 2010 and January 2011. On top of all this he had also abandoned my son in a tent at the bottom of a field whilst he conducted his sordid affair. He left my son alone between 9pm and 1am.
On top of all this whilst my children were staying with my ex-husband he persueded my son to get into bed with him whilst he was naked and showed him video clips of "men and women naked sitting on each other" as my son put it. This gave my son nightmares for a long while. I know there have been other incidences because now my son is scared to death of seeing any pictures of semi clad people ie- women in bikinis and men in trunks. He runs a mile when the shower gel ads come on TV as well. He now even struggles to cope with me in my underwear.
My ex went off with someone 15yrs older than me and a lot less well looking. I don't really know what to do with all this information and where to take it next. Does anyone have any advice for me please? I'm getting desperate. Thanks!
