I am so glad to hear you were able to open up and especially that he was so understanding
When something is bothering you and it's difficult for you to speak up, just remember the result you had this time. You won't regret saying the things you need to say if you know they will help your marriage. You will only regret the things you failed to say.
My best to both of you going forward & we are always hear to listen as things come up for you. I know it has helped me to hear how others are moving forward.
