What I have learned thru all this over the years, is that in the first two years of it all, I was looking for someone magic to fix my marriage and my spouse, I was so desperate and when it didn't work I was even more fustrated and upset. Then it started to dawn on me, no one can fix this but us. And if one of us is not willing to look at the whole picture and dig deep into the roots, listen and communicate, show love, respect, encouragement, affection, remorse, ect, it will never work.
For the ones that worked in R, they had the tools within themselves to give to one another for real R. They went and talked to MC or IC and really wanted to fixed themselves.

No one can do that by themselves. If you change and end up leaving the spouse behind that doesn't want to change and that is Never a bad thing, it means you outgrew them and you are way ahead of them. I am saying they can not caught up but I am saying that they need to change also.

I learned alot and GREW alot for myself to be a better person, woman, mother, and wife if we get back together , taught me what I will and will not put up with anymore. Sure my feelings still get hurt but I love me again.

So if you can't talk about your marriage problems with each other, a MC, or friends/family...who are you supposed to talk to?

That is my first reaction.

I think that there are a few phrases in which you can take and apply to any marriage or relationship for that matter:

New choices resolve marital problems

One personís effort can change the momentum of a marriage

Essentially the idea that you need to work hard and put forth effort in your marriage REGARDLESS of what the other person is doing...and that you have the ability to change your part.

The rest...I disagree with. At least when applied to infidelity or abuse.

I have been cheated on by 3 different men, and I have more DDays than anyone ever should. I am here, just trying to pickup the pieces.

At least the current man "only" cyber-cheated.
