I am the betrayed and we are 3 years out from D-Day. We have done EMS Online and I am on week two of Harboring Hope. My husband and I are separated at the moment but that changes often. He believes if he stays consistent that I will have to believe him. I know he is lying. There is no doubt in my mind, and for three years I have thought surely I could make him see how ridiculous his story is. I have pointed out many discrepancies and asked him what about blank? I have never gotten an answer to those questions, and have even pointed that out as well. He has taken a polygraph and failed and this polygraph met your guide lines. He now says he no longer believes they are valid and that is why only certain states use them in court. I pointed out that psycho paths have passed a polygraph and even innocent people can be so nervous they will get a false reading but this is not court. If he would have passed I would certainly question whether or not he was a psychopath. The only hope I have left in getting the truth is an EMS weekend. Would you agree or am I fooling myself with this as well?
