How did she take the news and how do you think this will affect your future with her? If I may ask. I am glad you came clean. I bet a weight was lifted from you.

The choice of words..."glad you came clean"...is interesting. I am sure you did not intend to but isn't the connotation of "coming clean" when one has committed a misdeed?

Ironically,that is sometimes how I feel regardless of the "It's not your fault" mantra we all sing here.

"How did she take it?".....well, surprisingly well, I think...but my timing was complicated..... Surprisingly, I was not emotional like I was when it all came back to me and I told my T. I guess I have moved on from the 'angry' stage and I am more comfortable with it all.

It is an opportunity to work on improving what we need to...with the advantage of removing this monkey from my shoulder.

Just me,

I chickened out telling my wife yesterday. Trying to work up the courage. You make me feel a little more like I can do it. Thanks.

Yes justme I see how it could come across almost criminal. When you clean something however you take stains out and make it look new. I bet u felt new when u told her..I should have phrased it better than that and thanks for being upfront about it. I am sorry if I offended you

Just me, I know in my case, I told my wife after she left me and I knew she was gone for good. She had moved out and was getting a new house. I told her for closure for her own peace of mind to let her know that it was not because of her or anything she did/didn't do. She returned home and has helped me tremendously. I wish that same support for you my friend. It is an awesome felling to have you wife in full disclosure and still accept you. We come to realize that we are worth something even tho our brains tell us we are not. I am happy for you and will pray for you an her. Best of luck on your journey bro.
