My husband feels he will always have "what if" questions about his affair partner. He is staying to help me with my recovery. If he had not seen me at my low point, he would have continued to talk to her. When he saw me at my lowest point after discovery he decided to stop talking to her for at least 3 months. He is doing EMS Online with me and made improvements in his communications but he still leans towards the affair partner. Because he is thinking of his affair partner daily, it seem hard to believe that he can start rebuilding feelings for me. If I do not allow him to see her for closure, will it hinder him from ever being able to genuinely work on our marriage because in his mind, he is always thinking of what it would be like to be in a full blown relationship with her.
