I admitted my affair to my wife 5 months ago. It lasted 2 months and I've broken off all contact. I've completed boot camp and will be enrolling in Hope for Healing. I've tried all I can to convey to my wife that I don't want to lose her and my family. After initial disclosure, she briefly indicated she wanted us to have a chance. Since then she has completely disconnected and shut me out. I am in the house with her and even the same bed. She refuses to acknowledge me, speak to me, or to do marital counseling. She's says she will never divorce because of our kids. How do I get her to engage?
