My wife is trying very hard to do all the right things in recovery after her betrayal. The one thing she struggles with is showing initiative in recovery work. To make sure we do the lesson or to share the discoveries she makes about herself and our marriage with me. When I have to remind her about our Married for Life lesson or when I ask for her opinion on an article and I don't hear back unless I bring it up, it makes me feel like this isn't top priority for her. I don't want to feel like I always have to drive the recovery bus. I have expressed this to her many times on a respectful way. What can I do?
