Is secret marriage allowed


I met a beautiful man over a year ago. He is sincere in his islamic faith, he teaches me things everyday an answers all my question regarding the religion which has me now asking more questions to others and now question my Christian faith.. I’m so torn. 1. He’s married with four children. We had sex for the first time several months ago… I love this man so very much he called me one day and told me that he loves me very much and respects me so we need to have a Nikah he explained it to me.. I researched it and said yes 3 months later. Here I am today in love but so very torn and confused by this situation no one knows about us. He said its between us and Allah only. I see his wife often and she has no idea. I feel like a horrible person.. I need help please ~In love with a heavy heart
