My husband had an affair almost 2 years ago. We attended the AR Weekend and also participate in all the aftercare groups. I have forgiven him and things are getting better by the day. My question is about our boys, ages 16 and 14. They know about the affair. How do I talk to them about sex? I want them to understand the importance/difference in having sex with someone you love and just a one night thing. How do I explain this to them when they know that's exactly what their own father did?!?
