6 years ago today my SO and I met. The first time we actually saw each other was for coffee one morning at McDonald's. For sentimental reasons, he took me there today before we went out to a nice dinner. We were sitting there and he popped the question! He had a beautiful engagement ring in a pretty box in his pocket, pulled it out, and asked me if I'd be his wife.
I was stunned speechless!!! When my voice finally returned I croaked out a "yes" (at least I think I said it out loud!) and started crying....and crying....and crying. He was teary eyed, too.
For anyone who has doubts, there IS a light at the end of the tunnel...and it is beautiful.
Thank you to everyone at SI for helping me heal and get to this point. I love you all.
Married 18 yrs, together 25+.
The story doesn't really matter anymore. Time is a great healer. Life is good.

Your light (at the end of the infidelity tunnel) is shining very brightly !
It's my life now, my choices, my mistakes to make and my victories to celebrate. His choices made me free of liars and betrayers in my life. That is priceless.

I love the engagement posts. I'm such a romantic. At this point in my life I live romance vicariously through my SI family. I hope someday I will posting one of these but until then thanks for posting.
