They catch up on life, apologize a little, and move on.
And wife doesn’t fall apart.
Life moves on.
(and now I need to write about betrayal trauma and healing. but goodness I’m so far from being an expert on the subject. but let me say this: your healing is paramount. his healing is paramount. and you can heal together, eventually. but it hurts like hell and it feels at times that there is just absolutely no freaking way that your path could be right. and sometimes it isn’t the right path. and you with God can be the only ones who make that determination but God can do big things even when it feels like he is totally ignoring you. but is isn’t. ever. you’re always in His hands. always.)
