So I think I already know the answer I'm going to get as far as this goes. I guess in all reality this is the first time I've truly delved into what it is to be red pilled. Becoming the architect of your own destiny and living up to your full potential.
I want to see I'm looking for some insight and advice. When I got married to my wife I had just gotten back from Afghanistan oh, I was in the Marine Corps and I was young and dumb. In all honesty I don't really believe that I wanted to get married in the first place. However being a man of my word I tried to make the best of the situation. Don't get me wrong I did love my wife but I just don't believe that I should have gotten married at 21. I'm 27 now and out of my marriage I have a awesome son and another on the way.
I'm a firm believer and putting my son before me and ensuring that he is a happy healthy well-rounded young man. My wife and I separated about a year ago for about 6 months and during that she repeatedly brought my son around men that I would call scumbags and I don't use that term lightly. I pretty much made a choice knowing that in my state since she was not an unfit mother that there was no chance that I would be able to get custody of my son. So I made the choice to suck it up forget about myself in my own happiness and make amends.
The reason for the separation was repeated infidelity on my wife's part. And you can call me a cuck because in all honesty maybe I am. Maybe I am being a cuck and setting a bad example for my son by staying with a woman that does not respect me and has cheated.
I have noticed however that my wife and I are two truly different people. I being more conservative and wanting to continually improve myself through physical exercise and My Life by chasing a career as a HVAC / R technician which in my area makes pretty good money and has plenty of opportunity for self-employment and growth. She has repeatedly told me that she is okay with mediocrity and I am not.
My questions to you gentlemen are these.
Do you think I took the correct route and stayed in a broken marriage to protect my son or should I set a good example by removing myself from this situation.
In your opinion is it possible for a person to make up for infidelity and change their ways. Or os the old adage once a cheater always a cheater usually the case.
Am I a selfish husband for being upset that my wife refuses to take personal responsibility for her health and in turn our future quality of life.
