Question: 

How do you know if you are functioning in "pretend normal" or actually having better days? It seems like things are improving, we're communicating about safe topics (kids, work, etc.), there's physical contact, we spend more time together, I feel more joy and less pain. Then I fear we're ignoring the elephant in the room by not talking about the affair.
