Right after Dday I ordered "How to Help Your Spouse Heal From Your Affair" but it sat unread. I tried to get him to read it (or something!) but there was excuse after excuse.
Yesterday we had a hell of a day. Once again I held it all in until I exploded in anger. I ended up sobbing telling him he needs to go above and beyond what he "thinks" he needs to do but I refuse to make him do anything or ask anymore. I stayed in our room crying while he took the boys to their sporting activities. When he came home he showed me the book (HTHYSHFYA) and he was halfway through.
I never realized how hard this road would be. I never feel 100% confident but yesterday definitely helped things. Me (BS): 35
Him (fWS): 35
