Well. Glad everyone enjoyed the effort of such diligence of taking on the personal mission of destroying me, of becoming my judge jury and executioner. YOU REALLY DID A GOOD JOB!!!! But you know….got a news flash for you…..I did it to MYSELF, JEFF HOUSE. I have no one to blame but myself. I had a GOOD marriage, and I threw it away over weakness and temptation. I admit all to my affairs. Why yes, there were two. I have admitted all to Karen and family. I know EXACTLY what that makes me. All the things that I have been called are true. I bear it all. Has it destroyed you wonder? Yes it has. To the nuclear bomb level. I used and manipulated those around me in the most disgraceful and disgusting manner that a man can. I have destroyed a 12 year relationship. Do I deserve what has happened? Yes I do. The statements about a cheaters heart being hollow? You have no idea of hollowness. I have discovered a new depth of hollowness I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemies. About the pain that a cheater causes his family? You have no idea the pain I have caused. The shame? Yep, got that one too. To the point of being unbearable. More on that later, so keep up. But my shame bares pale to what shame I brought on my wife and family. I have been rightly put into my place and I bear all burden and blame. I have hurt so many, you don’t have enough pencil and paper to fill out the list. And the pivotal person in all of this is me, JEFF HOUSE. I have shattered my wife, the BEST THING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED TO ME, into a million pieces. She bears the most pain of all. And worst of all, she did NOTHING to deserve it. NOTHING…….hold that thought, if you can.
I have problems. I freely admit I have issues. I need professional and spiritual help. But you know that is MY business. I have set out to turn my life AROUND!!!!!!! Now stay with me . I gave my life to the Lord last nite. 9-22-10!!! It was actually an awesome experience!! Look me up, I’ll tell you about it. OH but WAIT….cheaters hide behind religion to make themselves “ look better “ and “ease their conscience” you say?? Whatever. I know everything I have done, and so does God, and now so does everyone else. I am seeking what I never should have gotten away from. So if you think that I am using this as a prop, you’re wrong. I am a lost shell and I want God back into my life. And he is here. So scoff IF YOU MUST. I really don’t care as none of you pay my bills, mow my lawn, or deal with my troubles and turmoils. I do. And I want to change. I HAVE to change.
But cheaters never change you scream back in retaliation!!!!! Like my father used to say….Sit back and watch me. You might learn something in the process. OH and I am sure my haters will sit back and watch with diligence. I KNOW who I have to prove myself to, and it’s not you.

To my wife Karen. I was your it your all your everything. I threw US away. You are still my it all and everything. I pray for the day that you will come back to me and we can become what we once were, a couple that stood beside each other thru EVERYTHING and were GOOD together. YOU ARE THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME AND I MISS YOU DEARLY!!!!!! You used to be everything I lived for. I want you to be that everything again. As much as the east is from the west.
But you know what? NOW it has become a PRIVATE issue between ME and KAREN and MY FAMILY. I ask my wife, my family and my friends for forgiveness and support for both Karen and I. I want to become the man I was. That I can be who I should have been again. Who WAS that man for over 10 years of marriage. I lost him, and I am trying to find him again to get the love of my life back into my life. To put the family I have caused so much grief to back together again. to be continued...
So to my haters, leave us alone. Leave Karen alone, you’ve done quite enough. I have people that are inspirational in my life now, and they are helping me. IF you DON’T, then that speaks volumes of your place in life. Karma, or “what ye sow so shall ye reap” is true. I am reaping. I don’t care what my haters say or do anymore, they are not important, only my wife and family are. If you HATE me so bad, then just come whoop my butt. All who want to have an open invitation. Or better yet, just take a gun and shoot me. Cause that would be a relief to what I am going thru now. Otherwise, STAY AWAY AND OUT OF MY BUSINESS! And let MY WIFE, MY FAMILY and LASTLY ME go about healing for MY MISTAKES and TRANSGRESSIONS. I want THAT and NOTHING.....OR...... ANY......ONE ELSE.
So rant, rave, cuss, fuss, and run me down. Not a lot more damage that can be done at this point. It has cost me just about everything, and I know I deserve it. But like I said before , it speaks of YOUR character, and bears no importance to me in any form or fashion. I am TAKING MY LIFE BACK. Good Lord willing. And he is.

Jeff, I commend you for admitting your mistakes and trying to make everything right again with your family. I am proud to hear that you accepted Jesus in your life and you are letting him guide you through this bad time. Many people will get on here and bash you because they are not half the person that you are. Most people would never get on here and admit their mistakes, much less to the extreme that you made your admission. I believe that all things are possible for those that let God into their life and live their life through God. You have asked God for forgiveness for your sins and that is the first step in healing. I hope that you and your wife can work through this rough time and people will leave you and your family alone. If you need friends, you know you have them...we will not judge...that is up to God!

Jeff you are a glutton for punishment...just kidding...you are a better man than most to admit the things you did here on topix. People are probably going to take this and run and there is no telling what they will say. You just need to realize that you and your family are the only ones that matter and the people on here that trash you don't mean anything. You made mistakes and admitted to them. Taking the step into Christianity is a big deal and I know that God will help you. I know you are sorry because of the things you wrote and I hope your wife will try to work things out with you. Most people say that a person who cheats will always be a cheater. Those people do not have God in their life. Forgiveness is the best thing that you can be given...it is one of the greatest gifts. God will always forgive and I hope your family members are christians that will also forgive. You take care of yourself and your family and if you need anything, just call your REAL friends and we will be here for you.

Dad even though you have made probably the biggest mistake in your entire life I am so proud of you for getting on here and admitting that you have a problem. I am always there for you know matter the problem or situation. I pray that as a family we all can work this out. Karen is my step mom but I feel as if she is my mom, I love her with all my heart and know matter what the consequences bring she will always be my mom. I love you both so much. Dad you have caused so much pain but I will never stop looking up to you or shame you. You are the best that has ever happened to me. If it wasnt for you I dont know where Id be today and I thank Karen for that also, she has never ever left my side for any reason. Dad you have many people that will stand behind you though this I know. And I am one of them. I love you so much. And if Karen reads this I love you to. I know it will take time to forgive but I want you to know that you are an awesome mom and I hope that one day I can be half the mom that you didnt have to be. I have told you that numerous of times but that is because that is how I really feel. I pray to God every night that our family will one day be back to normal. I love you all!!!

Jeff, everything you've done and experience in your life has made you only one thing, Human! Stand up, dust your pants off, hold your head up and take the rest one step at a time. You know the difference between right and wrong and that too makes you Human!

For the sake of your wife and the love that you claim you have for her. Why in the world would you embarrass her like this. Take this post off of here immediately and let this be private. Why did you have to kick her while she was down.

To..."come on people" and "take this down" apparently you haven't read the thread where they have been bringing up and making public what was going on, that is why I am sure Jeff felt he needed to do this. This public admission and apology shouldn't embarrass anyone but Jeff, he is the one that did wrong. If anything Karen should be proud that he stood up like this and confessed not only his wrong doing but his love for her. No one is perfect and he isn't kicking her while she is down, sorry you see it that way. Karen if you do read this I just want to say that I hope you can find forgiveness in your heart eventually and reconcile your marriage. Just know that I have all involved in my prayers and God will see it through.

Let me see if I got this. You have an affair with the same woman twice, then create a thread about her and bash her, then profess undying love for your wife, and then profess you have found God.

Oy Vay!

Guest I applaud your line of reasoning.

My Roots - I am proud that you have never had a man that you loved embarrass you like this. For the rest of us that has, this did nothing but rub salt in an already inflamed wound. And since when does a public admission and apolody cure anything in a marriage!!

Karen is such a pretty lady with a smile that just catches your attention. You Jeff already married over your head when you got her then you can't even honor her. Say what you will about how you've changed and given your life to God, good for you but you should have given your all to Karen. How could you even look her in the eye again if she could find it in her heart to have you? You don't deserve her and she definitely doesn't deserve the likes of you.

Jeff, i understand why you put this on here. You just wanted the truth to be known. Topix is the quickest way to do that. I see you regret what u did. And that is one of the first steps to getting through it. I am proud of you for getting on here and admiting your wrongs in front of everyone. For everyone that thinks this is too much information. Then go tell that to all those sorry ass people that posted on that thread about him and everyone in his family! Some of it was the truth but some of it was lies. They are the ones making it worse. I hope this thread will end it all. They made this personal matter public whenever they started and kept posting on the topic. But i pray that everything works out and everyone gets better

If people were posting things about him, he shouldn't start a whole other thread giving people the chance to post even more. What he SHOULD have done, was try to get the threads removed.
When I first read this thread, I thought it was a joke! I couldn't believe someone would actually get on here and post all of that. This certainly isn't the place for it! You don't want people talking about you and your business, but yet you get on here and post your whole life story. Good grief, get some brains man. Use the head on your neck instead of the one in your pants for once.
If you felt like writing a letter, maybe you should have written it to your wife..or the people you felt like you've hurt--and GIVE IT TO THEM. Not post this on Topix.
Some people really do leave me in awe.

jeff,if people want to run their mouths and make up lies about u and ur family, so what? u and karen don't have to answer to anyone b/c it is NO ONE ELSE'S business. i understand why u posted on here too. to all the people who r running their mouths, u need to think before u post anything on here judging for urselve's, that is not ur place now is it? the Bible says IF U JUDGE OTHER'S THEN U WILL BE JUDGED BY GOD. remember that. jeff i will b praying for u, karen and the rest of ur family, and i am proud of u for giving ur life to GOD,things will start happening for u in God's own time, so b patient and wait until He is ready to make something happen.

well jeff you do deserve a good kick but you aren't the only one to blame here, lay some of it with the other woman, she knew you was married, so we all know what that makes her don't we. you may have strayed but she didn't shut the door instead she threw it wide open, if i was karen i would kick both of your asses, but hopefully in time karen will forgive you and eventually trust you again if not, then you will have to pick up the pieces of your life and have to go on. as a woman who has had a cheating husband forgiving is the easy part but forgetting is impossible, and that affects the trust thing
