My wife went ballistic when she caught me sending nudes to my ex

DEAR DEIDRE: MY wife went ballistic and kicked me out when she found messages on my phone to an old girlfriend.

I think I’ve ruined my 25-year-old marriage.

My ex got in touch with me through social media three months ago. Over a couple of months we messaged each other about the old times and our new lives.

It was innocent until she sent her last message which included a picture of herself topless.

Stupidly, I sent her a picture of my bottom half, naked.

To me it was only ever about the attention as I wasn’t getting much from my wife.

I’m 58 and my wife’s 56. I love her and miss her so much.

I am staying with my parents but am desperate for my wife to forgive me so we can get back to normal.

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m sure you are but your wife has been devastated and the damage is done.

It’s worth trying to get her to understand how much you regret what you did.

Sexting was wrong but you were vulnerable to someone showing you interest, particularly given your wife’s inattention.

If she does agree to take you back and try again, you have to know you can keep that promise that you’ll never do this again.

Relationships can come back from a crisis like this and be stronger than ever, as long as you are both prepared to work at it.

I’m sending you my support pack on cheating to help you both.
