My husband and I have been going to counseling for about a month now. Last week he finally took accountability and admitted the reason he had the 18 mo. long affair was HIS fault and he was just selfish. Where as up until now he blamed the A on the fact we had problems (who doesn't!) Anyway, the counselor asked me how many times do I need to hear my H say he's sorry before I can begin to stop bringing it up. He told me about the A a year and a half ago, but we never REALLY dealt w/ the betrayel and pain then. He apologized over and over since telling me and I thought we could move on. But I always felt he didn't really "own it" until just recently I am trying to get the thoughts of them out of my head, our 2 yr. old son keeps me strong, but I wonder if I am normal?!? Does anyone else have any advice, I could really use some different perspectives!
