You're probably a normal person with a lot of friends. A lot of men who end up cheaters are already detached from their community base, that's why they are seeking out companionship/company/stimulation.

Hard to say--not flaming you, but you may need to allow for others to do things their way. You admit to being independent, but you may be seeing his involvement as control whereas it's just being part of things. He has a right as a parent to do things one way. It's a hard adjustment. I went through it too (always thinking my way was best etc). I soon learned to realize that kids need a bit of difference in their lives b/c it's a big world and it'll help them get used to different rules, and ways of doing things. [ Reply | More ]

I'm 50 -- listened to Gone Girl on audiobooks and liked it, tried Girl on Train but didn't.

Don't know about The Preacher. Have you tried The Americans (old seasons on Amazon, currently on FX)? It's perfect for our age -- you'll be so nostalgic for the early 80s. All the mauve!
