If you haven't already, first read this: Recovering From Infidelity
3 years later, we are doing great. I still love her like I was a high school kid.
She still loves me the same way and treats me like a king.
A few months ago, I felt that her passion for me was waning. Instead of talking it out rationally, I let it fester until I blew up. That was the wrong thing to do. We did discuss it (rather heatedly, but at least it was out on the table) and she has reverted to the passionate, loving, sexy woman I need. My own passion for her has increased due to her hotter passion.
Our love life is absolutely amazing. When I am home, it is nearly every day, sometimes twice a day.
We had company for Thanksgiving and enjoyed them, but it was wonderful for both of us when they left.
Last year, we didn't decorate for Christmas. It was the first Christmas since our daughter passed away and we decided to run away on a cruise. Best decision we could have made. This year, we have a relative living with us (college kid) and W has made the right decision in decorating for Christmas. I am having a hard time getting in the Christmas spirit, but I'm trying. It is coming about slowly because I see W's and CK's (college kid) enthusiasm.
I'm also going to be working during Christmas this year, so I think that has a lot to do with my lack of Christmas spirit. (I work offshore and am normally home a month, at work a month.)
I have received so much good advice and helpful tips here, I just wanted to tell you guys thanks.
I also realize that some of the advice I give here is brutally honest and frank, but know that it comes from the heart and experience.
There are a few people here who have helped me so much. You know who you are. Thank you so very much.
