I still have hope. He cheated and I still believe that we can come back from this. First, he has to reconcile with himself and figure out exactly what he wants. Then, we will have to see if we can find a way through the wreckage we created. I didn't get married to just give up. I truly believe that everything happens for a reason. We both took each other for granted and have since realized this and admitted it to each other. We talk more openly and honestly now than we have on the last year. We are becoming best friends again. I hoping more than anything that we can build on that and get back to better than we ever were before. Many people have told me to just leave him and give up, but my heart and mind are not ready to do that. I need to follow my instincts through this. I need to be 100% on every decision I make so that I have no regrets and no what ifs.

You sound so strong and smart💪🏼 I don't know you, but I'm proud! How do you know he won't fall back again, and hurt you. Again. ?

You took the words right out of my mouth. I struggle daily to keep my marriage together. Accepting both are at fault is very important. We are not perfect but we are hopefully on the road to being happy again. Good luck

Just know that you are not alone. We are in the same boat and I strive to fix my marriage so that I have no regrets in the future too. Hope you two are on a good road to recovery. It's hard but in the end I think the extra effort will be worth it.

Your story is interesting and to the point. I do hope your relationship is improving. That you are feeling more secure and hopeful about the future.
