How long is it “normal” to abstain from sex after finding out my partner has been unfaithful? It’s been 6 months since D-Day and I still can’t even imagine him touching me. I’m so disturbed when he just tries to hug me (the intrusive thoughts overcome me) that sex seems like it’ll never be a possibility for us.
