DEAR SARAH, I AM a [...]; WALES ON SUNDAY SUNDAY, MARCH 2, 2014 27 news latest news at Sarah Symonds The straight talking relationship expert Twitter: @SARAHJSYMONDS.

DEAR SARAH, I AM a professional, ambitious 33-year-old wife and mother. My husband and I have been married for almost 12 years. Our relationship has become somewhat stale over the years, however my top priority is our son and, to be honest, things are overall good with our marriage and my husband treats me well.

Over the past eight years, I've been involved in three long-term extramarital affairs with married men. The first two each lasted about a year and ended for the same reason: their wives became pregnant so I could not possibly continue. The third and current extramarital relationship has been going on for four years and I literally feel "hooked" to J and not sure how to break this habit once and for all.

In the early years of our affair, J told me he and his wife were actively trying to conceive a second child. Eventually they did succeed and, like my previous affairs, I insisted that we back off, he agreed. However, he did contact me after a couple of months. I was under the impression that the baby was born and we could resume the affair and agreed to meet up with him.

During that encounter, I learned his wife was actually due any day but I foolishly initiated to be more physical than ever with him. But we agreed to distance ourselves and I encouraged him to focus on his new baby.

I need to shake this guy - FOR GOOD. I don't like what I've become. I think I simply need to hear that one thing that will cause a light bulb to go off in my head and shed light on what is really going on.
