After many months of reading posts on this site, I have decided to take the leap and join the most amazing group of people. I am happily married for close on 28 years to a survivor of sexual abuse. Our story can bring comfort and hope to so many participants because we have weathered the storm and can truly say that happiness is possible.

It has not been easy but the rewards are worth it.

Welcome Rosemary,

I love the energetic optimism in your post! Yes I too have found an amazing group of supportive survivors here, and I am truly happy for you and your husband. I hope to learn more about your story, I am sure in many ways it will help those of us who are married or have partners.

Thank you for that Rosemary.

sometimes it is difficult for many men here to open up to a women for various reasons. Please dont take offense with it, it is a defense mechanism well placed for safety.

take care
