Summary to date: W was unhappy in 2018 and probably a few years earlier about her lack of career advancement, responsibilities of being a mother and wife, and lack of connection in our MR. She became involved in an EA with OM1 (a co-worker) in August 2018. She went to an IC without my knowledge and determined that I was the cause of her unhappiness. BD and IHS in November 2018. I begged, pleaded, and became super husband. She became obsessed with her physical appearance and recapturing her youth. EA with OM1 became a PA. She met OM2 (25 year old pickup artist) in mid-November 2018 has been having a PA with him going on a year. W went deeply underground with her smartphone when I found out and confronted. W met OM3 in March 2019 on an online dating app and had an ongoing PA with him as well. W distanced herself from anyone of strong moral character and primarily interacts with a recently divorced woman that became her BFF in 2018. W bought her own house and moved out in early April 2019. We arranged 50/50 custody of our kids, S8 and D5, rotating every few days.
We attended Retrouvaille at the end of September 2019. W genuinely opened up and seemed to put forth effort. That was short-lived and she is back to her WW behavior with the OM. W was inching her way back in December 2019. WW resumed at the start of the New Year and A's continued through the end of February 2020. I was done living in an open marriage and presented her D settlement papers at the beginning of March 2020. W came to me a week later in tears asking for another month. Halfway through that month, the Coronavirus changed the way we lived. W started staying back home at our marital house 17 months post-BD and just over a year after moving out. She has not moved back in and I cannot say that we are piecing in any way.
