Hi Rick, We are almost at the end of EMSO and we can’t believe how much progress we've made together. He was ambivalent about even starting this program, I was starting to research the divorce process and now we are so open and vulnerable with each other. He does what I ask of him to make me feel safe . However as of a few days ago, lies have resurfaced, due to pictures I saw on social media from the AP, during the time of the affair. Also, the biggest bomb dropped on us, is that when he confronted her that he was choosing me and our marriage, she told him that she had an abortion earlier this month. I've never seen him so broken, as he knows that he's not only destroyed my life and marriage (which we're healing from), but now the loss of life and destruction of the APs life. He had slept with her before we committed to EMSO. How do I heal from this? We don't have children but I feel disgusted and discouraged that she had carried his child as I've wanted a family. How does he heal from this? I've never seen him or anyone this broken before. Any words of wisdom are welcome. Thanks Rick
