Eight months from D-day. Several trickled truths, married for 34 years. I'm still not feeling much affection for my husband. I think I still love him, but I'm not really even sure about that. He's not the man I thought he was, but he is trying his best to become that man for me, for himself and for our marriage. He has not pressured me for sex, but lately I'm thinking he would surely be up for it if I were...which I'm definitely not! I can barely stand the thought of it after what he's done. I'm not sure he understands that. I don't even like hugging him or holding hands. How do I get the feelings of physical intimacy back? We are getting there emotionally, working hard at it, but sex is the last thing on my mind.
