I had been married 30 years prior to my affair. It was a happy marriage and I loved my husband. I came in contact via Facebook with my high school boyfriend who lived many hours away and began an emotional affair. This lasted a year and we had a physical relationship 8 times the next year before my husband found out. I was nearing 50, feeling old, our nest had just emptied when this began. I was lost and he made me feel young and special. How do I convince my husband I did love him and still do? That I did not love this man and that I am sorry and just want my wonderful life back. He is convinced I don’t love him and am only here because he’s the safe choice. How do I make him understand?
