Hi, Rick. During my affair I told the AP a whole lot of lies about my spouse. The AP sent just about every text message and even recorded a phone call. She also called my wife a few times. So my wife knew about every detail of the 54 day affair. The lies hurt my wife extremely and I couldn't be more sorry for the pain I have caused the woman I love.(my wife). The one lie that my wife can not seem to process and do not blame her had to do with sex. She floods during sex and right after. Sometimes more than others. How can I help her with this? I try to be reassuring but it doesn't seem to help. She says there's nothing I can do. My wife lost her faith over this comment and will not go back to church because she feels ashamed.
