My husband and I have been separated for about 2 months. He moved out one week before Christmas. Christmas, New Years and then my daughter's birthday kept us in much contact throughout the first month. My husband has been involved in a "Lonely Hearts Club" affair. He says he wants to come back to the marriage but is too ambivalent to make a commitment one way or the other. He started seeing his own therapist about three weeks ago and is seeing this professional once a week. How long does it typically take for a wayward spouse to start to see their dysfunction and how much interaction should I have with my spouse throughout this part of recovery?
