Well presumably it's clandestine and secret because he knows you would be upset to know he is still doing this. Of course nothing whatever is "telling him to do it" ( does this Something also tell him to hide it and lie to his wife ?" - he probably means that he feels sompelled to do it and can't explain why. As there is no such thing as a spli personality, he definitely doesn't have one. Normal personalities behave in different ways under different circumstances.
But marriage counselling might be a oo idea, as somehing is not working optimally in your relationship, and he should be able to find what he gets from these chats, within his relationship with you.
