My partner and I are making good progress with the EMS Online program. We're communicating and learning more about each other than we ever have. One of the largest obstacles we are working on is the fact that my affair lasted 2 years. He has expressed forgiveness and love for me and has worked hard to understand the whys behind my affair. He states he just can't get past the fact that my affair was 2 years in length. What can I do to help him navigate through this painful fact?

2 years is forever

I am a betrayed husband of a 2-year affair. +41 Dday. Of all there is to fathom... 2 years is the hardest part.

My husbands was on/off for 5

My husbands was on/off for 5 years. I can't do five years of healing if that is true... God, I'd be joyous if it had only lasted two years.
