Hello! It's been 4 years! Haven't been here in a long time,

Hello! It's been 4 years! Haven't been here in a long time, but thought it was worth coming by to say that yes, relationships can heal after infidelity. I didn't see how that would ever be possible 4 years ago, or 3, or even two years ago, but I think we've made it to the other side! My husband's emotional affair blew our marriage apart. It seemed irreparable, I was broken hearted, things were a mess. But now things are good, our relationship is much stronger, and I still love him. Was it hard to work through it? YES! Are things different now? YES! Can you ever trust again? YES! And NO! Meaning you learn to trust again, because you have to if you plan to move on in a healthy way. But it's a different trust, one used with more caution and heightened awareness. Was it the right choice to stay together? YES! For us anyway. Will it be happily ever after? Who the heck knows?? But right now I feel we are on the right path and I'm happy again. A couple years ago, we said we would mark this day by doing something special together, instead of separately mourning what we lost. But this year, I'm like, naw...l don't want to revisit that, let's just forget about it!!

I have a reply that is lengthy, so I started a new topic so this one doesn't get filled up with cross chatter....

I would love to hear your story and how you made it through so am one year in but honestly bc I got the information about his affair in bits and pieces I am not that far along and it doesn’t help that his AP got a new phone number 3 weeks ago and tried to contact him. It has put me in a tail spin. I am doing better but it is day to day. Going to therapy for EDMR tomorrow for the first time. I have lots of triggers we live in a small town and I know the places they went and hotel they used. I go out it my way not to pass or be near them and we have started going on movie dates to a theatre one town over bc I can’t stand to be in that theater her took her to.
