I would tell him exactly what you’ve said here. He’s a grown man and needs to take responsibility for his own actions. Having an affair doesn’t mean he’s privileged to move in if he wants.
If you haven’t met her in person yet, I would do that first. People can write back and forth for years, and then still feel like strangers when they finally do get a chance to meet.
I don’t want to give you a half-baked reply, like I have with some of the other questions I’ve responded to. Your question certainly seems genuine enough, and I can feel your pain, brother.
First of all… I don’t see the need to change at this point. I’d suggest waiting a bit. See how it goes this winter. If she isn’t interested in spending half of the time at your place, than I’m afraid this probably isn’t a woman who can appreciate the wilderness.
Regardless of whether you’re a man or a woman, there are people who can’t stomach extreme isolation. These people always need to have some sort of confirmation by others that they are all-right; that they are doing fine. But it’s like a drug. They have to have this confirmation regularly. You can’t put these people in a remote cabin; their needs aren’t being fulfilled.
At the same time… I know women who have risen to the challenge. They realize, living in the wilderness with all of the hunting and fishing, is what they needed to make their lives complete. But at the same time….
You’ve probably heard it said that you “can’t judge a book by its’ cover” — I’d suggest waiting a while, until you can delve further into the book. Don’t make any promises. Let’s see how it goes.

Thought this was pretty cool!
C, an E-flat, and G go into a bar. The bartender says: “Sorry, but we don’t serve minors.” So, the E-flat leaves, and the C and the G have an open fifth between them. After a few drinks, the fifth is diminished: the G is out flat.
An F comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is not sharp enough. A D comes into the bar and heads straight for the bathroom saying, “Excuse me, I’ll just be a second.”
An A comes into the bar, but the bartender is not convinced that this relative of C is not a minor. Then the bartender notices a B-flat hiding at the end of the bar and exclaims: “Get out now! You’re the seventh minor I’ve found in this bar tonight.” The E-flat, not easily deflated, comes back to the bar the next night in a 3-piece suit with nicely shined shoes.
The bartender (who used to have a nice corporate job until his company downsized) says: “You’re looking sharp tonight, come on in! This could be a major development.” This proves to be the case, as the E-flat takes off the suit and stands there au natural. Eventually, the C sobers up and realizes in horror that he’s under a rest. The C is brought to trial, is found guilty of contributing to the diminution of a minor, and is sentenced to 10 years of DS without Coda at an upscale correctional facility.
On appeal, however, the C is found innocent of any wrongdoing, even accidental, and that all accusations to the contrary are bassless. The bartender decides, however, that since he’s only had tenor so patrons, the soprano out in the bathroom, and everything has become alto much treble, he needs a rest and closes the bar.
