Why not try to work things out together, working in marriage counselling ? This attraction to other men could be a "grass looks greener on the other side of the fence" phenomenon, and unless you better understand yourself and your relationships, you may not be any happier with anyone else, either. HS's response makes a lot of sense, and is worth re-reading.
