She first told how her sister had been her protector and best friend through a tough childhood, and they had a close relationship.

The woman’s sister then became engaged – prompting her own husband to confess his secret.

Her original post explained that her sister met her boyfriend a year ago.

“He got along very well with me and my husband, although I always felt that my husband never really liked the guy,” the woman wrote.

“When I asked him once why he didn’t like him, he got flustered and told me that he didn’t know it was noticeable and apologised.

“He told me he just didn’t think he was good enough for her.”

The woman later posted that the boyfriend had proposed to her sister while the four of them were at her sister’s house, sharing pizzas and beers.

“The BF just suddenly took out a ring. She was very surprised, but happy all the same, and said yes,” the woman said.

“When we went back home, my husband was a little tipsy.

“He told me he wasn’t tired and that he’s going to take one more beer and watch TV and that I should go to bed.”

The woman said that when she went back to the living area, her husband was crying.

“I asked him what’s going on, and he told me that he was in love with my sister,” she said.

“(That he) has been for years, but he knew how wrong this was.

“He told me that he loved me very much, and promised to be a good husband and father to our daughter.”

The husband slept on the couch, as his pregnant wife tried to take in the shock news.

“I don’t know what to do or how to feel about this,” she shared on Reddit.

“My sister, should I tell her? Nothing can be the same again, but she’s my only family and my best friend.

“And my husband. Is this over?

“I have been so blind. Now I see everything. Can I save this marriage?”

The woman later posted another update after her husband apologised for hurting her.

“He told me he loved me very much and he wanted for this to work, for us and the baby,” she said.

“I asked him if he loved her more than me and he said, ‘It’s just a different type of love’.”

She added: “I asked him if has stayed with me all these years to be near her. He said I was being unfair to him because he did love me.”

She said her husband vowed to do whatever it took to save the marriage and raise their child – and they agreed to start counselling.

In a second update, the woman said they had been to dinner with her sister and her sister’s new fiancé.

“My husband was unusually silent and didn’t initiate any talk with my sister. And he barely looked at her,” the woman said.

He congratulated her sister on her engagement and had given her a hug for “longer than usual” and was then silent on the way home.

After arriving back home, he told her again he would do anything to make the marriage work – but also asked her not to tell anyone about his confession.

In a third update, the woman revealed she had asked her husband for a separation while she thinks about the situation.

“He cried when I told him I wanted to separate,” she said.

“He told me he has lost everything in one day because of a drunk confession that meant nothing.”

The husband is now living in the couple’s basement.

And the woman has chosen not to tell her sister of his feelings for her.

“This is my battle and my marriage,” she wrote.

“I love my sister so much but I’ll be very honest – I resent her. I’m jealous of her and I think I always have been.”

Relationship advice

Reddit users rushed to share their advice, with many saying she should leave the relationship for the sake of her mental health.

One said: “Your decision will be – Do you want to live your life knowing your courtship and marriage was not the truth for him? Can you trust him to change to realise that his love (for your sister) was a fantasy?

Another said: “You never want to be anyone’s second choice when it comes to love. I’d ask myself … would I be willing to give up years of my life questioning the intentions of my husband?”

Others suggested she leave for the sake of their unborn daughter – and that it would be better to have separated parents than a child see their parents’ relationship fall apart.

One said: “Children know when a relationship is unhealthy, and they will be happier and better in a single parent home when the parent is happy, than in one where there is fighting or drama.”

Another said: “Having a father in love with their aunt might be traumatising. I can definitely see it causing a lot of resentment between the parents.”

Others worried about the impact the situation could have on her sister and their relationship, with people agreeing her sister is an innocent party.

One said: “This will come out, eventually. I think I would make the hubby see a counsellor on his own because why did he let this get to this point.

“This should have been ringing alarm bells to him long before now.”
