A mom-to-be writes in asking for advice. She recently found out that her husband has been cheating on her throughout the entire pregnancy. She also notes that the cheating has been “especially” bad within the last month. She wants to know if other moms have experienced anything similar, and what they did or would do in this situation.
A member of the community asks:
“I am 7-months-pregnant and just found out my husband has been cheating: Advice?
I currently seven months pregnant and just found out my husband has been cheating on me through the whole pregnancy, especially in the last month. Has anyone been through something similar? Anyone have any advice?”
Community Advice for This Mom Who Is 7 Months Pregnant and Just Found Out Her Husband Has Been Cheating on Her
To see what advice the Mamas Uncut Facebook community has for this mom in need, read the comments of the post embedded below.
Though some commenters felt there is maybe something this mom-to-be could do to repair the relationship with her husband, most had some fairly simple advice: leave him!
“Didn’t know it wasn’t already obvious: LEAVE HIM and give your baby your last name, not his!” one commenter said.
“Kick him to the curb,” and “Leave him. This is a simple one tbh,” said others.
“Move out or kick him out. Don’t let him see your child. Don’t give the child his name and don’t put his name on the certificate. He’s a piece of crap and you both deserve better,” another commenter added.
While still advising the mom-to-be to leave her cheating husband, other moms shared their similar stories. “I understand,” one said. “It feels like your dreams have been crushed. When I was pregnant, the child’s dad cheated on me and he acted like I was repulsive. He was very hateful and shunned me, so I know how it feels. I left him and he has no contact with me or my child. I have been single for six years and I don’t date. I am the happiest I have ever been. My child is wonderful. He loves mama.”
“I’ve seen it in my own family,” another sympathetic commenter stated. “Leave. If he gets away with it and there are no consequences, he’ll do it again. I know it’s easier said than done but you deserve a man that respects you and loves you.”
