made a big mistake
im separated from my husband due to him having a 3 year affair. took me a while to leave him but in the end did. I have a best friend who helped me through the bad times and our friendship grew very strong. He is married and i get on very well with his wife. Both our families are great friends. They supported me through me leaving my husband.

My best friends wife is away on holiday. A few of us decided to go out last night and due to too much alcohol consumption i was not able to drive home alone last night. I followed my best friend home (drove behind him) and slept over at his house. The whole thing was very innocent - i swear. However my husband for some reason followed me (for the first time last night) and discovered i slept over at my friends house. Well he is now accusing us of having an affair. Told absolutely everyone including my best freinds wife. We realised that the decision last night was a big mistake...but my best friend was looking out for me and could not let me drive home

How does something so innocent turn out to be such a nightmare

OK, you are separated, so it's hardly proper for your husband to be following you around, especially as the separation was due to his major and prolonged infidelity. Mandy is surely right about telling him to mind his own business and attend to his mistress. And explain things calmly to you friend's wife, or maybe he needs to do that.
