My husband walked out after 35 years marriage

After 35 years of marriage my husband walked out. We didn’t really have a great marriage but I never expected this after we’ve been together for 35 years. I’m devastated and I don’t know what to do. My husband have been taking care of me financially for the last 25 years after he decide he didn’t want me to go out to work anymore.  He decided I should stay home and keep the place clean and cook and take care of the kids. It was fine by me because I preferred to be home with my kids but the kids are grown up and on their own, and since the last one moved out I noticed my husband started going out and staying out a lot late at night sometimes coming home at 5 o’clock in the morning and I think he may have been having an affair for the last 6 years, but I can’t really prove it; but I think he walked out to be with the woman.  I’m 56 years old and I just don’t know how I’m going to start over now and what I’m going to do. I could use some advise from anybody that’s been in a similar situation.

    In 2010 after almost 35 years of marriage, my husband cheated and purchased a vehicle for another woman. I do not have the same values for my marriage and family anymore. My 2 kids are grown and was gone, but now by daughter is back at home due to problems in her life. I look to God, other than that, I could have walked out last year in July. God is the what keeps me moving onwards. I know God is here even though it is tough. I feel my husband betrayed me, and he was not devoted to me as I was to him. I don’t want to be with my husband sexually, actually I don’t want to be with him anymore. I am still with my husband because I want to make sure I make the right decision by God. All I can say is pray and read the bible. Do you have any close relatives you can stay with? Maybe you can apply to go to school, get a grant or something. Babysitting infants is something to consider too.
