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.

Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; they’ll scratch you up time and time again but in the end you’re polished, smooth, and spotless..while they end up useless

It is what it is, not what we hope it can be.
When another woman takes your husband,
sometimes the best thing you can do for
yourself is to LET HER HAVE the worthless

Your light (at the end of the infidelity tunnel) is shining very brightly !
It's my life now, my choices, and my mistakes to make.

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.
