Staying in a marriage without trust means accepting that you’ll never truly be at peace or truly happy in your marriage

Dear husband, yesterday I was missing you and couldn’t wait for you to get home from work, and yes, when you got home I did get my sense of balance back.

You do have a way most of the time of making me feel like everything is going to be okay; but then come those times when you shatter everything. Things have been pretty quiet for a while and I’m grateful for it, but the problem with letting my guard down with you is that every time I’ve done it in the past it proved to be a very big mistake.

I don’t think you quite understand what it means that I can’t trust you because you don’t really get that trust is everything to me. Because you’ve betrayed me so many times and I’m still here I guess you figure trust can’t really matter as much as I say or else maybe you figure there’s really no consequence for betraying my trust anyway so why worry? But there is a consequence and we’re living with it every day. It’s like the dirt under the rug I talked about yesterday.

Trusting you again would be the biggest mistake I could ever make in my life and yet if I am never able to trust you again how can I ever be truly happy with you and at peace with my choice to stay married to you?

    I’m sitting here amazed at the fact that you damn near repeated every thought in my mind VERBATIM. Wow.

    I live it everyday. My husband has lied to me so many times I can’t count. Why am I still here? Why didn’t I leave the first time? Now I have 2 girls who would be devastated, so I’ve stayed. Knowing he will hurt me again.

    I understand i think she uses my love for our daughter against me. I dont believe anything she says anymore. I have promised myself this is it. 1 more lie im out no matter what.
