Re: Bad MC stories?
Our MC had us buy and read "After the Affair" after the first session. We both read it and then we never once talked about anything in the book other than "So, what did you think about the book". I expected, somehow, that we were supposed to do some of the exercises and lists in the book but..........nothing.
My husband recounted the entire affair in great detail, I was never asked to do the same, nor was there any time to do so.
I was looking for some sort of instructions, advice or insights from the MC but I got nothing other than "Be a good wife!"
During the last session, the MC asked me if I was willing to live in a loveless marriage for a couple of years because that was, in his opinon, better for the kid than divorcing right away.
Today, we are having a lot of fun with each other, we laugh, we support each other, sex life is great, we are building our business together, talking about buying that boat to spend our Sundays floating around on the lake, we are about to buy a new home. We don't ever fight about anything.
I know my husband didn't just forget about the affair and he still has bad days here and there. He doesn't want to talk about it though, I've tried and it went nowhere. He told me he needs to work on these "issues" by himself so I'm giving him all the space he needs.
