I believe my husband is sorry and remorseful however he still becomes very defensive and argumentative over the smallest things. He has become extremely short with me and I feel worthless and sad on most days. What do I do with this? We are in week 9 of EMS Online and he has 1 week left of Hope for Healing. I’ve completed Harboring Hope. The affair lasted four months, discovery was eight months ago, and the affair ended seven months ago. We do not have children, we have been married for two years, and have been together for seven years. Any advice is appreciated.
