I can completely understand the allure of a charismatic man. You melt when he looks at you. He does really stupid things and then he apologizes so well that you take him back again. You love the way he kisses you or does other things to you.
I have to tell you, someone that would lie to you so much, and keep lying and lying, both to you AND to this other woman, is simply not worth it. It's easy to claim loyalty to him, to stand by him. But the only person you are using is YOU. You stick up for him against family and friends, and you feel like you're doing good - but the only person you are harming through all of this is YOU. If you were not there, he'd find another woman to use. He's already used two of you, and he probably has others out there waiting on the wings. Yes, he cares for you, he cares for her. And he cares for other women. That's his nature. But none of you can ever TRUST him or RELY on him.
If you are hoping to form a family and live a life with someone who cares for you, then you really have to find someone WORTHY of that care. You have a lot of loyalty and trust and love to give. But he is NOT worth that. He is using that great nature of yours for his own goals. And he will keep using you and twisting you and manipulating you until you stand up for yourself.
You deserve better. Your children, that you will someday have, deserve a REAL father who loves them, cherishes them and will provide for them. That is NOT him. Find a man who is truly worthy of your love and of the worship the children will provide.
