During this exercise my husband tried his best with having 3 kids at home. However, he did bath me and feed me but I had to ask for him to even do that. He keep saying well that is what the guy did to his wife ..We don't need to do this.. I think he puts himself in front of me more often than anything... This exercise was not helpful and did not make me feel any better toward him or the situation. I kept an open mind and really hoped he would come around but I always hope that and end up disappointed.. He has had an affair twice in the 13 years, we have been together and expects me to get over the most recent one ASAP. I look forward to see what happens in the next exercise ..Maybe a break through will happen!!! Also, he did say at the end of the day that he enjoyed bathing me..I really do love him and I was hoping with every bone in body that he would have worked harder at the exercise... I could have seen him in a different light than what I see him in now. I told him this exercise could have helped gain back the trust I no longer have for him.. :e: ... post&f=32#

This excercise was interesting to me because ive never tried it before but it actually didnt bother me. Me and my wife ate dinner at the table and i fed her dinner and then later on that night i made a bubble bath for her and gave her a non sexual bath i have to admit this was pretty cool to me i never thought i could do something like that without having any sexual tendencies. My wife enjoyed it but at first she thought it was akward but after a few minutes she enjoyed it and so did I. This is a new thing for us so we are taking it one day at a time but i can see how this excercise would create a unique bond between husband and wife so i will continue doing this hopefully once every 2 weeks or so because i dont wanna burn my wife out with it i wanna keep it as a fresh experience but i really love my wife and if she wants to do it once a week or more i would do that for her i just dont want her to feel like she has to ask me to do it i want it to come natural cause we are new to all of this recovery stuff.

My apologies for barging in to your thread but I just noticed that you are posting your exercise results as new topics in the forum. I hope you don't find me intruding here but I would recommend that you create one new topic called "Student30 and EaglesFan77 - Couple's thread" and then post reply for each exercise that you are completing.

Then your will have one topic covering all your progress, as well as any reflections coming from the coaches. The forum will aslo be less "chatty".

Good luck with your couples work shop. I'm also doing it right now and I find it very helpful.
