I was married to my husband, Donald Raymond Rieg for almost 19 years and we had 3 children together. We went through everything together, we pretty much grew up together having met when we were 18 and 19yrs old, being together literally 1/2 of our lives. Our marriage didn’t start having problems until his return from Iraq. Even through that, I stayed and supported him, when I was advised to leave. I wanted to but couldn’t because I had given him my word when I made my vows to him…twice (we married and then remarried/renewed our vows). I sacrificed, supported, helped, and loved him in every way I could. Our marriage seemed to hit rock bottom after I found out about his affairs on New Years Eve 2011 (Dec 31, 2010). On Jan 1, 2011 we discussed fighting for our marriage. He had agreed to go to counseling and to do whatever it took to try to keep our family/marriage together.In July I flew to the E coast to attend a seminar to help me get through the hurt, betrayal and

I was married to my husband, Donald Raymond Rieg for almost 19 years and we had 3 children together. We went through everything together, we pretty much grew up together having met when we were 18 and 19yrs old, being together literally 1/2 of our lives. Our marriage didn’t start having problems until his return from Iraq. Even through that, I stayed and supported him, when I was advised to leave. I wanted to but couldn’t because I had given him my word when I made my vows to him…twice (we married and then remarried/renewed our vows). I sacrificed, supported, helped, and loved him in every way I could. Our marriage seemed to hit rock bottom after I found out about his affairs on New Years Eve 2011 (Dec 31, 2010). On Jan 1, 2011 we discussed fighting for our marriage. He had agreed to go to counseling and to do whatever it took to try to keep our family/marriage together.In July I flew to the E coast to attend a seminar to help me get through the hurt, betrayal and all the things that I was struggling through because of his affairs while on deployment. While in VA getting marriage counseling, Michelle came to my house, she even tried to pretend she was Don’s friend Jeremy’s friend and reviewed our family pictures on the wall with our youngest daughter. My daughter told me how she asked her questions about our family and the pics that hung in the entryway of our home. That Friday night Don sent my girls to spend the night at their friends houses while he and Michelle did God knows what in our home. My neighbor told me that she had seen Michelle come and leave our home the next day. When I called the next day Don screamed at me and said I had no right to question why he didn’t answer my phone calls the night before. He then proceeded to cut me off of our bank account and leaving me with nothing and no way to get home. He maxed out our credit cards, bought a trailer (RV) and moved onto base leaving me with the rent and all of the responsibilities of our home and children.Sometime had past and I started getting the proof of his affair with her. His government credit card bill came in the mail. I looked at it and saw there was a hotel bill for a nights stay for over $200. I called the hotel and got the folio. It had both of their names on it. She made the reservation and he even let her use her hilton honors # to take the hotel points. I also got the receipt of their dinner at Searsuckers for over $200. So in one night he spent $500 on her while he allowed me and our girls go hungry without money. I kept calling her and leaving her voicemails and sent her text msgs to leave my husband and family alone. But like a coward, she didn’t return any of it until I contacted her mother. I called Michelle’s mother and asked her to tell her daughter to stay away from what was rightfully mine, my kids. Her mother said she would. Then I got a text message from Michelle that said do not contact my family and to leave them alone. I told her again to leave mine alone and I wouldn’t call her parents again. The funny thing is, is she graduated from the Naval Academy where they teach the importance of honor, courage, and commitment and then entered the Marine Corps where honor, courage, and commitment are put before everything…but she did not represent or adhere to ANY of it. She couldn’t keep her word either nor could she get her own man. She had to keep pressing forward until she helped destroy our family.Because of her, Don has now been forced out of the Marine Corps-forced retirement, sooner than he had planned. I now have 3 children who have hurts that are so deep in their hearts that I am afraid may have altered their spirits and God forbid doesn’t keep them from becoming what they were created to do in this life. My children as was I was left feeling worthless, with no value and the one person who was supposed to protect us and keep his word and be a man, couldn’t because of this jezebel. The Marine Corps officers did their very best to protect her and not keep their commitment to the Core Values of the Corps. When I went to her command at MCTSSA I was told by the XO,”My priority is the reputation of this command. I am not going on a witch hunt.” His job was to keep the values of the Corps not just as a Marine officer but as a Christian man, he failed too. They both lie and said they met on his MEU but that was proven a lie when you look at both of their career records. While he was on the MEU she was stationed at Camp Pendleton. Their jobs are not related in any way. So she has gotten away with what she’s done to a family and has got to keep her family and is still with Don. I || write my story to help me get past it so that I can move forward. I am fed up with people who do wrong things to innocent people get away with their bad choices…sleeping with a married man is a choice. Not leaving him alone when the wife tells you to is a choice. Not keeping your values, ethics or word is a choice…none of it is a mistake. The pictures posted I received from Don when he sent them to me trying to be mean to me by telling me not to be jealous of her via text because she was better than me. He took the one of her on the couch himself with his phone. He sadly thinks I am jealous of her, I am not, I have nothing to be jealous of. She is with a man that has proven he doesn’t have what it takes to be a real man, she couldn’t get her own man, she had to steal mine, she’s a homewrecker and has no character even though she parades around in a USMC uniform trying to act as if she represents the values of honor, courage, and commitment. Her not being able to keep her word, says enough about who she is as a person and her on Don’s arm is proof that she couldn’t get her own man…a man who I no longer want because he obviously prefers mediocrity and was willing to throw away what great thing he had and settled for less than best.
