But, really?? Should I feel like I get a prize or something now that my H has decided he wants me and only me in his life again?? After all the pain he gifted me with, along with lies, deceit, sharing his heart and body with other women for 3 years??
I still don't get it, I can't comprehend it, I cannot for the life of my wrap my head around it.
He says he didn't think we would last and he assumed I would leave him when I finally found out. Then, we experienced HB, more Ddays, more HB...
And, this is where we're at.
I'm trying to enjoy it, but it's such a bittersweet realization. He's finally all mine, but at what price. That he went out to date for a while to realize I was the one all along...
I hate Mondays. So, good morning everyone...
Are you thankful for remorseful WS?

I will never stop trying... because when you find 'the one' you never give up. (Cal Weaver)
Cheating on me has shaken me to the core but all the time he has been living with OW, i feel will be the hardest to get past, whether we R or not
I dont want to be an option and that is the way that I have LET him treat me.............NO MORE
R is difficult, but if a post puts my R into doubt, I very much want to see that post. Your pessimism about your post-D-Day life may be a wakeup call to someone else.
So post where you please - I recommend posting were you'll get the most support. (I sometimes suggest to a WS that s/he post a specific issue on WS instead of R, but that's only because I believe s/he'll probably get more support there.)

You may want to try and PM some of the members that the affiar really was a deal breaker for them, and they couldnt go back.
You may not be able to wrap your head around it because you may not really be able to accept what he did.
I know that there are PLENTY of WS's here that are thankful to get a second chance, and I know that there are a lot of BS's that were thankful to have a true, remorseful fWS that worked on themselves and together made a stronger marriage, but you have to want it...
Once I was certain that is what I had, sure. You show ddays from November to two weeks ago. I would want to see some real sustained effort and actions before I began to think I really had a 100% dedicated, in love with me WS.
Once you see the consistent transparency, changes in behaviors from old habits to new healthier ones, more open and intimate communication, more gestures to win you back, then you may actually feel thankful for your prodigal WS.
When I was at the stage you are now I was satisfied with "not divorcing" and waiting to see what happened while i worked on healing myself.

Sorry you're having a shitty day. Antiversary time here, I get it. Hope your week gets better.
I'm actually having a bit of a down time myself. I've been injured, in pain and not sleeping (but getting better now) and although my fantastically remorseful H has been taking excellent care of me I have been wondering if I can get past it.
He has become more than I ever thought possible. He has my sympathy for how he became damaged. But some days it just hits me like a ton of bricks.
My advice to us both; wait. And stop trying to understand. As many here, and indeed my own H, have said, there's no understanding the wayward mindset. Aren't you glad you can't in some ways? I get my H's whys and he's working on being the best man he can be, but for a happily married man to risk everything for a person he wouldn't even date, then continue doing so, when it was toxic and unrewarding, boggles the mind. Only pathology can explain it.
BTW--Mondays were hard for me too for a long time. H recognized this and was extra attentive. Better now.
Didn't know I could go to WS forum. That's exciting for me! lol.
