Re: My husband had feelings for my BFF
It's one thing to be attracted to your spouses friends (we are human after all), it is even better, IMO, that we can openly discuss this with our spouse, but it is definitely not good to act on those feelings. And in your case Christine your H has confessed that he indeed was acting to a certain degree on those feelings (flirty emails, trying to get physically closer to her) and that only fuels even more intense feelings. The fact that he told you and that you are talking about this bodes well for your relationship because it means he trusts you to help work on the marriage with him (by following the advice you are getting from the comments here). We all sometimes make mistakes, its how we choose to deal with those mistakes that defines our character.
