Pretty Rare I Think

We were married for 6 years when we separated for a lot of reasons. We have been back together now for almost 5 years. I like sharing the story because I think its kind of rare but gives others hope when they are facing a break up that they might not be prepared for. We still have our problems like all couples, only now they are just different, kids etc, however I think being apart reminded both of us that the"newness" of a new relationship is all fun and good but when the dust settles, we are just super compatible and great friends on top of being great lovers...

I love reading this story so I can believe there is hope for my marriage. Did you see each other during the separation? Did he go to marriage counseling with you? Do you have any advice on what to do or not to do during the separation to help the healing?

Congratulations ! I recently reunited with my husband of 19 years after a 6month separation~ there is definitely an adjustment period but I feel blessed to be in this "new" 2nd marriage ~
