Okay, lady. Being cautious is appropriate with his track record. Your determination sounds good. Apparently, your WH reacts better to that than anything else. (Consider how he’s reacting today.) I think your best course is to be gracious, courteous, etc., but firm. Six months of Plan A is long enough and 'tis time to get on with fixing the things that need to be worked on and time for you both to begin healing.
