Good article. I think she explains well what we try to emphasize on SI every day.

Nice article. Very similar to what is said and emphasized on SI each and every day.
A must for all BSs to read.

the betrayed spouse struggles for ongoing years
If the ws doesnt quit blaming you and not take complete 100% ownership of the A, the bs, nor the marriage, will heal. I think that is why we get stuck in limbo.
And for JFO, give it 6 months, but if you are not seeing ownership, cut bait and move on.

That was so good to read. I'm one of those who had a wonderful marriage and family before the affair. One night after she had decided to leave, I reminded her of how infatuated she was with me 24 yrs earlier. She said that it was different, that when she met me, she know I would be a good husband and father and her exact words were "and you have been, but this is different." I did get her to admit she was just bad on about three different occasions though.
