My “Husband” Has Been Living Under a False Identity – HELP!

Wednesday – Reader Question of the Week. – Her Husband Is Not Who She Thought He Was.

Basically through a tip and some online research (I am avoiding the details for protecting my identity reasons) I found out my “husband” has been living under a false identity and is a con-artist.  I just found this out 3 days ago (he is out of town for a week so I am trying to figure out what to do).  <!–more–> I have a very well paid job so I have a lot of money.  Which I am pretty sure why he married me now (as I found out all of his previous cons have been conning wealthy people out of money).  I am still in shock and can’t believe in my heart this is true despite having very valid evidence.  Do I confront him and hear his side (benefit of the doubt) or clear my stuff and run to the police to avoid a dangerous situation.  If I do that and the evidence I have is actually false then I have irreparably betrayed him?  Any suggestions?
