She knew their marriage was over even before his affair so she had her own affair while filing for divorce. As told to Simply Her writer Jo Upcraft:

"Before he cheated on me, our relationship was tumultuous as we bickered over our different parenting styles.

"Despite our underlying unhappiness, I didn't suspect he was cheating on me. It was uncovered easily though, when I overheard him talking about his mistress to someone else on the phone

".As our marriage already felt over, I didn't want to know who she was or any details.

"When I approached him very matter-of-factly about his affair, he said it was my indifference to him that led to it, which was partly true.

"We planned our divorce with our kids in mind. I didn't want him in my life - I wanted to start again. And I, in turn, had an affair while we were going through divorce proceedings.

"Today, we both manage raising our children well despite living apart. I moved on quickly, and while I am still single, I believe everything happens for a reason."
