‘My mum had an affair with my husband for 14 years and wants to be my daughter’s stepmum’

A devastated American woman has told the internet that her mum confessed to having an affair with her husband – and the pair planned to run away and raise her daughter as their own.

The woman said she felt “physically sick” on Reddit’s ‘Raised by Narcissists’ forum and shared her mother and husband planned to take her daughter from their small Arkansas town to move to California.

She wrote: “Last night my mom confessed to me over the phone she’d been having an affair with my husband since April 2010 and that she’s going to throw dad out and move my husband in with her and take our 4-year-old daughter in with her.

“My husband admitted to it that same night. We’ve been together as a couple since I was 19, and he was 21.”

After confronting her husband, the woman said she told him there was no way that he was taking her daughter away from her which led to a big argument.

The woman wrote: “[My husband] insisted ‘she’s going to live with me and your mom and your mom will be her stepmom, get with the program.’”

She added: “My mom has always had something of an ego; she’s been in a drama club for years and been in local plays and I think that’s where she got her ego from.

“I found out from my husband’s iPhone there were 60 images of my mom in lingerie and bikinis with sexy text messages she’d sent him… Wtf?”

After speaking with her father, the woman said he was feeling “stressed and upset” but was also “questioning [his] whole relationship” he had with her mother.

She wrote: “Dad is a state trooper for Arkansas State Police and as stressful as his job is, this is probably another level of stress.”

The woman ended her post after what her next step should be and asked the forum if anyone else had been through anything similar.

The woman added: “Apart from divorcing my husband (which my husband wants to do so he can be with my mom, they jokingly call each other the power couple) how can I cope emotionally?

“How should I cope? I’m currently eating a large amount of nachos and salsa just to try and cope, as I write this.”

In the comment section, users were sympathetic and horrified by the woman’s situation.

The most popular comment said: “I think you should fight for full custody of your daughter, and if they move away with her, go to the police immediately. From what I can see, your husband will not be a good parent.

“I’m not sure I can help you with coping, but I’d suggest unhealthy amounts of pizza.”

Another user wrote: “Just leave him, eat as many nachos as you want, get full custody of your little girl and never speak to that lying b***h of a mother again. At least that’s what I would do.”

Someone else commented: “There is no coming back from this. This is absolutely sick, mental behavior. It’s like your mother wants to take your daughter and is using your husband to accomplish that.

“She is so envious and wants to take everything you have. Show no mercy or understanding to her or your (soon-to-be ex) husband.”
