I found out that my wife is cheating on me with a stranger. I found conversations and naked pictures that she sent to him on her WhatsApp, she has not met this man from the looks of it however she is looking at hotels and guesthouses for them to meet. We have been married for 7 years and we have 5 children ages 12, 8, 6, 2 and 6 months. Financially, we went thru a very very hard time over the last year and it seems the person she has been texting is actually someone who has aided us financially from a facebook group that I was unaware of, she just always said it came from her sister. I recently started working again and I am earning a good income but my wife is planning on leaving me as soon as she is financially stable as she is a stay at home mom and has been for about 3 and a half years, I know this from another WhatsApp group person that she has been talking to this is an elderly lady. Now here is my dilemma, my wife is still breastfeeding our youngest and doesn't want to stop. Will this benefit her in the divorce and custody battle? How do I ensure my kids stay with me and not her? I don't want my children to stay with her as I am scared of what tipe of world she will expose them to. I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO, I STILL LOVE MY WIFE BUT I AM AFRAID OF HER GETTING FINANCIAL STABILITY AND THEN LEAVING ME AND TAKING MY CHILDREN. I also have proof of all her WhatsApp messages and pics that she sent to him. Please help me
