How do I get a girl I mustn't have feelings for out of my heart when I can't get her out of my life?

My marriage is a mess. Sex doesn't happen. Conversation is minimal. Possibly strangely to you guys, I really want it to work.
Getting in the way of this is another woman. She's completely unobtainable (being a relation by marriage) and in a relationship of her own. She's made no moves that would suggest she has any interest in me, but she and I naturally fall into a very flirty state when we talk, which we do often. Put simply, I love her company and feel insanely comfortable with her, feeling like I could share my deepest thoughts with her. [Except this, of course]
Despite her presumed lack of interest in me I can't stop thinking about her. It's bad enough that I feel a deep ache inside when she talks about her current partner.
All in all, it's a pretty pathetic situation to have gotten myself into. I feel like a love torn teenager.
So, dear AskMe, how do I get her out of my head without getting her out of my life? Is it possible?
