Yes.., Rock bottom of my 25 year marriage happened nearly 17 years ago.. Short version: emotional abuse, alcoholism, infidelity, money issues, life issues.....
We got through it all because WE wanted to. We BOTH wanted to get through those things together, and make our lives better together. We worked damn hard to completely rebuild our marriage into a marriage that we BOTH are : happy in/with, fulfilled, satisfied, respected, loved and appreciated. Doing so took a lot of work, a lot of tears, a lot of cold hard honesty, a lot of dedication and a lot of love on BOTH of our parts.. It could not have been done if only 1 of us wanted it, it had to be both willing to give their all, or it would not have worked out.
