She says:

“I had that feeling of, you know, beyond him being my husband, this is supposed to be my friend, my confidant,” 

She added:

 “Somebody who I can trust. And when you can’t trust the person that you sleep with every night, there’s a problem. I could no longer trust him. I could no longer lay with him. And it doesn’t make him a horrible person. We all make mistakes, but not with me and not on my time and not in my life.”
