what signs should i look fo in seperation that we might get back together
My wife and I have been married 6 years on January 6. We have a 6 year old daughter. My wife had drug problems and ended up in jail about 2 1/2 years ago for aout 5 months. When she got out I seperated from her and started seeing our daughters pre-school teacher. That lasted 3 months. I decided to go back to her and asked if we could work things out. That was a year and half ago and things went ok, but we never really moved back in together. 2 months ago my wife told me she didn't think we would ever be able to be together again. The famous I love you but not in love with you line. After a month of arguments and no progress, i changed my attitude and started trying to be positive about the situation. Since then the last 4 weeks have been full of ups and downs, but we have been spending a lot of time together and she has asked me many nights to stay at her place. We have also been intimate, which had not happened for about 6 months. I guess there is some progress there and I shouldn't give up yet. The thing that really concerns me is that when we are alonw togther she acts totally different around me then when we are in public. When we are in public she makes a pint of letting everyone know that we are married, but just friends right now. I have no reason to believe that she is seeing anyone else. I guess my questoin is a two parter. 1. could her acting differntly in public be just part of her healing process for what happened when I left her last time, or should I be reading more into it? 2. Is the fact that she is asking me to go out with her and to stay nights with her a sign that I should just stay the course because it is making progress?
