A.

My guess is that your marriage was in trouble even before you found out about your husband’s affair. You were snooping because you didn’t trust him. That lack of trust and your husband’s denial of the significance of his betrayal undermine your respect, love, and commitment to each other. In a way, finding the pictures may save your marriage. You surfaced the fact that there is something fundamentally wrong that desperately needs attention.

Sadly, you are not alone in this situation. So many people have written with a similar question that I wrote a lengthy article on infidelity. You might find it helpful. Go to Those Cheating Hearts.

I wish you both well as you tackle the difficult task of rebuilding your relationship.
