#9 Is It Too Late Now?
I was 40, had been married 10+ years, and had a couple of kids. Our marriage had turned into something that made me really unhappy. We barely had sex and our connection seemed completely gone. We fought a lot and it was always me who needed to apologize and compromise.
I met a woman 15 years younger at the office. We started flirting and it turned into an intense emotional affair that lasted about a month. I fell deeply in love with her and decided I should really divorce my wife since I was so unhappy. I told my wife about the other woman and that I wanted to divorce.
My wife begged me to try and work it out, go into couple’s counseling, and started having sex with me every day. I stayed and agreed to take 3 months to see if we could work it out. It was incredibly hard but we eventually did feel like we overcame it and we’re still together. —giantemotionalmess
