What Conclusion Would You Draw?

So. . . .a husband and wife, married about 16 years, hit a rough spot. They separate, go through counseling, and reconcile, the wife thinking they are more deeply in love than ever. After a year and a half back together the following happens:

1) In December, the husband comes home giddy about the "hot" new job candidate he's interviewing, making sure to tell the wife she's a former model.
2) In January, the husband and wife go to a function the former job candidate (now employee) chairs. Afterward, the husband e-mails his best friend about how he'd like to have sex with the woman.
3) In February, after the husband and wife share their Valentine's dinner, the husband calls the woman and spends an hour on the phone with her, giggling and being silly. The wife doesn't hear the entire conversation, but at one point he's holding the phone to the dog's ear, so the woman can talk to the dog.
4) From the day the woman is hired, she and the husband spend numerous nights "working" at the office, the two of them staying alone until midnight - and later.
5) In March, the wife overhears the husband and the woman saying how they love each other.
6) In April, the husband and the woman make a bet involving the NCAA final basketball game. Loser gets to tie the winner to the bed, and must bring whipped cream, restraints, and champagne.
7) The wife, growing increasingly suspicious, starts checking the husband's Blackberry. She finds e-mails between the two of them: "I love you."
8) In April, the husband announces the marriage is over. He's not in love with the wife any more. But no, he's not leaving her for the other woman.
9) Husband moves out of the family home and rents a townhouse. It happens to be exactly a mile from the other woman's house. He says the geography is entirely coincidental.
10) It's now September, and neither the husband's divorce, nor the woman's divorce, is final. However, the two have announced they are getting married.

So, blogospherians - what conclusion would you draw???

Ouch. I would off the cuff conclude that he is an SOB and player but...you mention nothing of whether the wife has done anything outside of the marriage or if she is the innocent in this scenario.

Bottom line though...he is an ass in how he let this unfold. End one relationship before beginning another. It's fair to all involved.

I'm pretty sure he left the wife for the other woman. Just sayin'. Oh, and he's a bastard.

He behaved shamefully and would find no forgiveness from me. But the wife also put up with suspicious behaviour for far too long. Bottom line, I`d never take him back.
