A few weeks ago a few different people recommended a book in this forum. It was something about how to get over the relationship and move on. I am a BW, DD was last October, I got the "we are just friends." I guess he realizes now that the OW is more important to him than "just" anything, because after some months spent trying to reconcile, he has now decided he is DONE with the marriage. I still love him, still consider him my best friend, and need to MOVE ON. Does anyone know the name of the book that is often recommended here? Thanks. We do have a child/children, but I don't want to get specific about gender or age because it is a really small world. The childr(en) are doing well, but perhaps are feeding off my denial of the real situation.

A book that has helped me greatly is "Getting Past Your Breakup" by Susan Elliott.

Thank you, NatureGirl. I think it may have been you that recommended the book on here. I will take a look at it.

Forgot to say that we ARE separated but it's easy to pretend that we're not SEPARATED because our jobs have always caused frequent geographical separations. And that might also be why the children have fared well so far.

Another good book is Journey from Abandonment to Healing.

Thanks, Dreamboat. It is also encouraging to see that you are writing "from a better place." I hope to visit there someday.
