Hi. I'm new here. I wanted to share my story and maybe get some feedback by someone that has been in my shoes. I know what I've done is wrong so I don't need any comments like that. I just basically want an 'ear' and maybe some support in getting my marriage by to where it should be.
My dh and I have been married 9 years and have 2 children. I am in love with my husband more than words can say. We recently moved to a neigborhood where we knew the family 2 houses down (our oldest kids went to preschool together). We always had cookouts and karaoke parties with this family this past summer. The husband would flirt with me subtly and I reciprocated. We started texting and met at a hotel one day for 30 minutes just kissing. We realized how wrong it was and left. He told his wife 3 weeks ago and I told my husband. I realize it was the worst mistake I'd ever made and it woke me up. I still can't figure out why it happened. Attention maybe. But I was getting attention from my husband, too so it's not like I was lacking it. I have no clue. All I know is I realize now that my husband is the most important person to me and I will die before I let this happen again. He has given me a 2nd chance (not that I deserve it). I want to prove to him that I'm the woman he married. I took him for granted and I want to make sure I don't do it again. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions for me to make sure I don't ever lose sight of the wonderful man and marriage I have?
Thanks for listening.
