Hello Guys,

After 18 years of marriage I fell in love with another woman. For two years I deceived both and lived a double life, until the two worlds inevitably collided.

The fallout has been swift, sharp and painful. My siblings, mother and closest friends, while shocked, have been amazing, but I have understandably lost everything.

I totally get losing the respect of, and communication with, my wife and the other woman, but having my three children (20, 14, 10) cut off from me as well is more than I can bear. How can I make amends so that my children will accept me back into their lives?
