So we are camping at this vintage motorcycle thing this weekend with his 2 best, lifelong friends. We got here yesterday and everything was going great. Last night we were all sitting around drinking a few and he says to them that he wants to set the record straight. He then proceeds to tell them about how he had been unfaithful and why, he took all the blame (which he should) and told them how lucky he was that I was willing to forgive him and work on fixing us and how much he regrets what he did. His friends are brothers, one is 1 yr older than H and the other is the same age as H. The older brother just kind of took a shocked breath and said he had no idea then went on to say how much he and his wife liked me and that the first time they met me they said that I "fit in with all of them" and he looked at my H and said, "I hope you know just how lucky you are". The younger brother really didn't say anything to him, instead came over to me and hugged me and said that he loved me and if he would have known he would have cut his balls off. The younger brother has always told me that I am his favorite sister in law, my H has always been treated like part of their family, they are more than friends they are like brothers.
Anyway, we talked about it later and he said he had been wanting to come clean with them for a while but the alcohol had loosened him up enough to tell them. He just wanted to make sure I wasn't upset that he had told them. I told him I was glad he had but for some reason, maybe the tears streaming down my face, he didn't believe me.He held me while I cried, the whole time telling me how sorry he was for everything. Once I stopped crying, I was able to explain to him that I was crying because him making the decision on his own to confess to his 2 lifelong friends and their support of ME had really touched my heart,especially in light of the way his actual blood family treat me.
I just wanted to share because it seems as though everyday something great happens with us and I am so glad that we are working this out and saving our M!!!
