I can't give you any advice SS. But I wish I had your strength. You're facing possibly the toughest road of your life and you're facing it with courage.
I admire you and wish you the best of luck.

Living very close to the coast of Maine, I can tell you the weather is beautiful right now. You and the fam should be in for a really nice week!

Seems to me that if you can handle SWAT's very emotional outburst, and still be feeling all of this pride and love for him today, you'll be able to handle any further issues that will pop up down the road.
Does it take some weight off of your shoulders to not have to worry if you can handle it. Because you did handle it, you were exceptional.
You two are so in love. You'll get this all behind you one day.
Only a couple of weeks ago it didn't seem that certain, did it?

I think that you are learning, SS, that an affair can be a clarifying event in a marriage that can totally open both people up. My H and I went through similar things after dday, where I opened up about things I didn't even realize I had kept from him. It can be a very powerful, healing, and growing time for both of you. Keep at it, and keep the faith.
It isn't that way for everyone, of course. I see evidence of much repression and rugsweeping in the other family affected by my husband's infidelity. So, you have a chance to grow and heal together. It looks like you are grabbing that brass ring. Good for you.

An affair is more like a mental break than a relationship.

He trusted me enough to show and tell me this. He trusts me enough to be a safe place for him.As a BH I cannot begin to tell you how important that is.

So far the vacation has been great. Nice weather and the people are so friendly. The house we are staying is amazing. Swat really went all out on this place, it is huge and probably is owned by someone super rich.
Swat is trying to eat lobster at every meal, not what I would consider breakfast food but what ever. Everyone is having a good time so far. Our kids and the nieces and nephew are having the most fun I think. "Daddy" aka uncle Swat is the biggest kid here and the ringleader of the heathen pack.
He has also made sure we have had some alone time. And he has allowed me to be very affectionate. Lots of hand holding, hugs and kisses. He is also starting to show more affection, just touching my back at the beach and stuff. It is very nice, but being intimate is something we haven't been is a very long time. I know it is because of my actions, but it is still difficult to take. But tonight is the night and I'm going for it. I'm hoping there will not be any triggers, but if there are, I'm hoping I can help him deal with them.

He did file for divorce, the marriage will be ended 10/23/14.

I really admire your positive attitude and your commitment to helping SWAT recover. With a bit of luck he can get over this temporary mental block and become super intimate once more.
Tonight hopefully; make sure you blow his socks off. He deserves lots of incredible lovin'.

Been following both of your threads and I'm pulling for you both!
