My wife wants to date someone else

doodlebug
But we are together and have a new born son(well not really he is almost one). I realize I have been gone in the military for a couple years and home here and there, but before that I was stationed in the U.S. so it was eater to see her. I have been in the air force for nine years as a fighter pilot. It's what I love to do and I understand I haven't been there for her because it is hard to have a family but also need to be there for your country. But over all I have done a pretty great job.

Anyway my wife has always been one more of the free spirit type. Jumping form job to job and loving nature and all that. Which is why I fell in love with her in the first place. She's wild and free and not held down by anything and she has such a passion and strength about her. Anyway now she wants to date someone else while I am home due to my injury so I can care for the kid. She says she is being open and letting me know so it is not cheating. But to me it is. I mean is there anything I can do to stop her? Should I leave her? (Not that I really want to her and my son are my whole life). Please help I need some clarity.

Don't get it. Maybe I have been in the wrong? But I don't think so. I have supported her through and through. I don't know advice would just be nice please.
