Question: A year and a half ago I had an affair. My spouse says he forgives me, but it’s obvious that he still has a lot of anger. I’m doing everything I can to show him that I love him and that I’m repentant. I’ve asked God to forgive me, and I believe He has, but I want to feel that my spouse forgives me too. What can I do to help him stop dwelling on this? How can we move forward in our marriage?
Karen* was just going about her day when she logged into her Facebook account and saw a private message from Richard*. They casually dated back in high school and he wanted to catch up.

Question: Several years ago my marriage was struggling and as a result I became involved with another woman. Thankfully, my wife has forgiven me and we are back together. But how can I rebuild my relationship with her and with my children?
Question: My husband had an affair with a close friend of mine over a year ago. We have since reconciled and our marriage is on track to better than it has ever been before, but I continue to be plagued by low self-esteem and self-doubt. Do you think I have truly forgiven him when I am still struggling with these issues?
