Hello beautifulmom! I remember your story with the bff and her mom. Great that he told the mom the truth!
I am so happy for you that your H's words match his behaviour and you are getting what you have been wanting.
My dad asked me the other night if I have forgiveness in me (as we just told my parents a few days ago). I said I knew I was capable of it but was not quite there yet. My H is doing everything right - since the get-go really.
I hope I follow in your footsteps. And like you, I hope this terrible time in our lives brings us a better, more passionate, understanding and genuine marriage.
Marriage can be better not bc of the A but in spite of it.
Have a good night.
