Our first couples counseling was so freeing for me. I felt so much weight lifted off. Understand it was over 3 years after dday when we went . My husband isnt one to go to counseling so I think he went knowing it would help me and he brought up his affair right out of the gate made me realize that he was all in.

My wife got the same treatment I did. I think the counselors plan is to get past all the hurt and anger and show us both what is wrong with us individually and as a couple. It was an extremely intense experience.

I felt so supported in our first session, and so did my husband. But the therapists made it clear that no matter what other issues we had and needed to address in our relationship, nothing justified the infidelity and that trauma needed to be addressed before we could move on to other issues. They made it clear to both of us that the cheating was about issues my husband had and that by making those choices he had severely damaged our relationship.
