I have sinned against God and my husband.
« on: Thu Apr 16, 2020 - 19:38:43 »
I have sinned against God and my husband. I will write out the whole truth here.. I got married to my husband in June 2013 and went to school the following year for 3 months. I developed serious feelings for my lab partner and turned to my husband to confess.
I lied about who it was to hopefully keep in some sort of contact with this other man. We exchanged a few messages around that time but nothing flirty. On the last day of school it was very hard to say goodbye to him. After my husband and I spoke about my feelings for this other man, we decided to work on our marriage and stay together.

It has been 6 years and i contacted this man again to go for coffee and catch up with my husband's consent. I always had this other man in the back of my brain. My husband trusted me and upon meeting with this man again, I realized the sparks were still very much there and he confessed he felt the same way.
I contacted him once a month to chat after that and within the last month, we've been chatting on and off. I ended up going to his house one day and we kissed(passionately) and stayed half clothed.
I have confessed to my husband what I have done and cut communication with the other man. Now I don't know what to do. I have made a grave mistake. I am seeking God and begging for repentance. I believe my husband would be willing to take marriage counselling with me.

My marriage is lacking when it comes to passion and intimacy and I don't know If that is all I was seeking(wrongfully) to fill or what.. I am praying that God erases the feelings and memories I have with this other man because they always creep into my mind. Please help

Its hard to know why your husband encouraged you to meet him again, that was very unwise, but you cant meet him again or have any contact. 
Yes some good marriage counselling may help.

It is apparent you do not want this to be happening.  You indicate that you are praying---that is the first and best solution.  Without prayer, no amount of counseling or will power will be affective.

Like David, such actions primarily are a sin against God.  But remember this: "Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body." 1 Cor 6:18

Continue to pray.  Talk with a trusted Christian female friend.  Read your Bible.  Stay involved in worship.
