It's good to hear. But don't get lackidasical. Stay vigilent and crispy. You're not out of the woods by a longshot.
I guess I'll be the one to ask. Are you and your wife being intimate again?
I understand this move back does not gaurentee anything, so it can be trying at times. With the whole experience of the last year, damaged extended family relationships and diminished trust, it is a tough road, but we have this chance.
She agreed to do a Marriage Restoration Clinic with other couples that starts in a couple weeks, along with MC. A positive sign, the tools are in place.
We have not been intimate, which has been very tough on me who has touch as the number one love language. This needs a little explaination though. She asked for a little time when she came back and then had a partial Hysterectomy (sp). She is still recovering.
I guess the hard part for me is knowing that there is still things she could do to ease my desires, but has not offered and I have been advised not to pursue till she is ready. Since she has not been an initiator since we first got married 17 years ago, I question whether she will ever ask.
I have my mind set that I will not push it till she is fully recovered, we are doing the MR course. I will not go on forever in a sexless marriage, but have come this far and will give her the chance to wake up and smell the marriage.
