Strawberry Letter: I Trusted Him Until…

Good morning Steve and Shirley I am a 36 year old mother of 3.  My husband and I have been together for 17 years and we have been married for 13 years.  I have always been a trusting wife.  I never doubted anything he ever told me.  I never thought to check his phone, emails, or Facebook page, until recently.  About 2 months ago my husband’s alarm on his cell phone went off.  He was in the bathroom so I reached over to stop the alarm, when I did that a text popped up that read, “I love you.”  This text was not from me, it was from another woman.  In this text, he went on to say, “I love you,” and asked her if she wanted him to visit her.  She lives in Missouri I believe so I confronted him with the text.  He of course that there is nothing going on.  I told him that I did not want to hear it and that the only reason that he is not getting cussed out was because one of our children was awake.  I had to go out of town that weekend and of course he called me begging and pleading.  He claimed that he just texted it to her because she texted it to him.  What]?  He also claimed that their conversations were about me.  He said that he was getting advice from her on me.  Ummm, how?  She has never met me,  he said that we didn’t communicate enough but he decides to go outside of our marriage and communicate with another woman.  I am an emotional wreck.  The person I trusted the most hurt me so bad.  Should I forgive him?   Do you think we can get past this?
