Thank you so much

Thank you so much for this wonderful blog. I am going through something similar, as my husband for 28 years of our 36 year marriage saw prostitutes and did pornography. I had 2 d-days, one a year ago and then the 2nd one in June 2015. I want to tell you that al of the things your husband did for you to heal my husband is also doing, and I am finally starting to understand and heal. I love the way you shared your journey of healing in terms of what your husband did to help you, as it gives me a tremendous amount of hope and encouragement that with some more time my husband and I will come through this with a stronger and more loving and basically a better marriage and relationship than we can ever imagine. He is working hard and one of the things you mentioned, about how you came to see that your husband has been struggling with this before the two of you met, struck home with me, as I am realizing now how my husband's sex addiction started way before he met me. Thank you so very much, Lynn, for your wonderful and perceptive blogs, you are helping so many of us to heal and find new hope and find new love and understanding for our unfaithful spouses. God bless you.

You are welcome

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I'm glad to hear that you see your husband doing some of those same helpful things! I am honored to be able to provide hope for you and others who are hurting. There is hope!! <3

Thank you

All I can say is thank you. I think that it is so beneficial for all of us on this journey to hear from a betrayed spouse that has made it through to the other side. It has given me hope that I will heal. It has also helped my husband to hear some things I have been saying from another person and have a WOW moment to evaluate areas he can beef it up.


You are welcome - that is the difference it makes when you find community! I'm so grateful to be able to share my experience and humbled that it would help another person! Thank you for taking the time to comment!
