My wife has joined this forum to share our experiences with others. Healing is made a lot easier with the support of family. She has been by my side all the way. Married 28 years this year.

I consider myself a thriver, what is my wife then?

I think its awesome that you have encouraged you wife to join. I know that this place has been a lifeline for me and I wish that H would join but he isn't ready. I agree with candu a loyal supportive partner is priceless. I'm happy for you both.

I am a wife & a survivor too; we understand each other about 98% of the time. I read everything about a MS because it is different for men, worst than I thought. We do T seperately & together, some pvt time needed there. Not sure what to call your wife other than a Angel but I can call you VERY LUCKY !
Keep talking & talking & talking w/each other.

I am happy for both of you--working together to heal. I am glad you both are committed to make the marriage work. CSA wreaks havoc on one's life and those around them. Your wife has taken a courageous step and realizes who you truly are and not the one CSA made you to be. Good luck

That is so wonderful!!!!! I am the wife of a survivor and one myself. I don't know if my H will actually even look at this site, but I am getting so much good information already.
Congrats to you both!!!

Wonderful. I would have stood by my husband through thick and thin, but he wouldn't allow it.

I'm so glad you have the support you want and are able to accept it.

I can say this. My wife has read several articles and books and has even gone to therapy with me. She has been such a blessing to me. I start tearing up as I type this just thinking about all she has done. Someone made the best one word statement.
