Email of the Day: I Almost Lost My 33-Year Marriage

By Dr. Laura on August 29, 2023
Woman embraces smiling man around his shoulders while kissing one cheek

I have listened to you for years and somehow thought I was doing what was necessary to care for my husband. WRONG!


I finally got my head out of my rear after discovering yet another emotional/sexting affair my husband was having with a woman he knows. I kept wondering why he was doing this to ME. Then I reframed the question to ask myself what I was doing (or not doing) to him to not nourish our marriage.


Well, well, well. I was NOT being my husband’s girlfriend!


I’m happy to write that I have put in the work and done everything to save my marriage by appreciating, acknowledging and showing affection to my wonderful boyfriend.


I almost lost a 33-year marriage and a terrific man because he was not my priority and I wasn’t showing him the love and affection that he deserves. And the bottom line is that it was EASY! There was no need to keep score or put my β€œfeelings” in a situation that just requires me to acknowledge his contributions and hug and kiss him daily!
