I have fallen in love with a co-worker, but I am married with children

i  am 40 years old, married and have three children. I have a loving wife and a career that makes me happy, even if it doesn't pay that much. However, right now, I am deeply in love with a colleague from work.


She definitely has a boyfriend, and I actually hated her at first. I don't care if she does her work or not, or even comes to work. She is emotionally fragile and gets angry easily. It was frustrating at first, but then she started telling me about the things that were bothering her.

We continued text message conversations for months. I clung to her and started to like her. He has a good soul.

Then 10 months ago, I realized I was in love with her. I couldn't stop thinking about her. My wife already noticed I am thinking about someone else.

I didn't want to quit my job and neither did she. What do I have to do to protect my marriage?
