Just wanted to say that DW and I blew by the 5th year anti-versary of D-Day and didn't bat an eye!

We have incorporated MB principles into our M and it has become second nature to us.

DW and I were even asked to tell about our journey to recovery this summer with a group of young married couples in a marriage class at our church. Of course we were all over MB and the importance of the principles found here.

We are more in love with each other than ever...there is hope here. Follow the plan!

Thank's MB!

I have been up all night reading your story here, wle2, and I have to say I'm in tears.
I'm a BS, and we're at 5 months from DDay. You give me hope. You give me inspiration. All of the responders have been amazing. It is encouraging me to begin the MB program full time.

Yes, I will start my own thread, but wanted to acknowledge the inspiration of wel2's first. I've been preparing myself to feel that crushing pain and anger in talking about what happened. I'm looking forward to the journey...

Dear MB family
It is with a broken heart that I am back here tonight. My bride went home to be with our LORD on Tuesday the 17th. She was 56.

We just celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary on Oct. the 9th.

Thank you Dr. Harley for MB.

Thank you MB forum.

My DW and I were deeply in love and had a great romantic marriage.

My family and I laid her to rest this morning. She is with her Saviour. I am all alone in this house tonight. My two DD's and family have been with me every hour until this afternoon. I am exhausted. My eyes hurt from the tears that just come in waves but I had to come here and praise her.

After our God my DW became the greatest joy of my life. She took it upon herself to become the wife of my dreams and she excelled at it. What only MB can teach She also allowed me to be her dream husband.

Our love will not end it was carried with her into eternity.

I miss her terribly, I love her so!

Wle2

I am so sorry, wle2. God bless you and all of your family and loved ones right now.


If you are serious about saving your marriage, you can't get it all on this forum. You've got to listen to the Marriage Builders Radio show, every day. Install the app!

If your wife is not on board with MB, some of my posts to other men might help you.

Please accept my condolences on the loss of your wife.

I can identify strongly with you. My wife and I were married the same year as you, she had her affair at about the same time as your wife, and we both have now fully recovered.

You are in my prayers.
