Does agreeing to a marriage of convience work? My wife of 12 years has almost had an affair ( I say almost because she did nothing sexual ) and we both came to the conclusion that our marriage has become a marriage of convience. She is not in-love with me anymore and I am not in love with the woman she has become. She loves the man that came between us, but for now she will not leave because she loves me as her best friend and we have two children. I am very confused and need some guidance because I am not sure about all the emotions floating inside my head. She has asked me that we continue to be married and I agreed for now. She does not want to hurt me or break me down anymore so our relationship has turned to one of friendship. I don't know what to do. She is a shell of the woman I married and I still love her, but I don't know if I am in-love with her anymore. She needs to heal herself first but I am afraid that her healing will break me down even more. I can't just walk away but I want to run! For the sake of what we had and for the sake of the children I will stay for now. Someone please help.
