Tips on getting back together with my recently separated wife
First of all I'm new to this forum so I beg your pardon if this thread is posted in the wrong sub-forum, but I think it belongs here.
So here's my story:
A couple of days ago my wife told me that she felt smothered and was generally unhappy with our marriage. We didn't fight or anything, we very rarely did. But lately we have seemed to drift apart a bit and I was becoming a bit depressed (probably because I somehow knew something were amiss). I have always given her freedom to do what she likes (such as hanging out with friends etc etc) but since I don't really have any friends she always felt bad for me when she left me at home (even though I didn't complain about it).
We met today to discuss our situation and I managed to get her to agree to give it a second chance. So starting next week we will move back together and give the relationship a second go.
Now, I know that she feels more reluctant to try this than I do. She said that she wanted to give it a second chance for me. I don't know if that's good or bad, or if it even matters, but seeing as she was the one who "broke up" I guess it would be quite natural that it's for my sake she agreed to try again.
I wanted to ask you if you have any tips for me and how to generally treat the situation when we are back together. If you have any experience on what it "takes" to prove that a life together is better than a life apart, so to speak. If there is something you, or someone you know, did to make a reconciliation successful.
I know that I have to be romantic but at the same time I don't want to smother her. She is my entire life so I really want this to work, so any tips, however vague or just if you want to share your view on the situation, are most welcome.
Seeing as we really haven't been "separated" seeing as how it on Monday will only have gone one week, so I apologies if I mislead anyone.
