Will be married 15 years in September. Wife lost her job, had affair, and left me over a year ago. She is now living alone. I am in the marital home and trying to keep the "home fires burning". No children at home. There have been no legal actions taken on either side, and I don't wish to "pull the trigger". We communicate occasionally and she implies that she just needs "more time"...and "doesn't know" what happened. I have suggested that we all make mistakes in life, and that I still love her, and that she is welcome to come home. She has said she doesn't want to come "crawling" back. I told her she wouldn't be crawling, and that her home was here. My friends tell me to "move on" etc...all the buzz words, but I am still in love with my wife. She is 15 years younger than I, but that difference never seemed to matter.Am I just plain stupid?
