Whether or not you intend to give your letter to your wife or simply use it as basis for conversation, writing a letter and having it reviewed is an exercise that can teach you a great deal about her.
A hardened woman will not think that you as a couple had problems — she will think that YOU were the problem. So it would be appropriate to wrap up by letting her know that if she ever needs someone to listen to her heart and share her pain with, you are there for her.
I gave one such letter to two female counselors to evaluate and watched them both be stirred emotionally and break into tears by the third paragraph, but when they came across that one self-oriented sentence at the beginning of the fourth paragraph, it stopped them cold.
The thought of that makes me feel horrible about what I did.
Following each offense, note how it made her feel. How awful you must feel. This woman knew her husband and recognized the sincerity in his words.
This friend would also want to shake her husband and tell him to knock it off. As you write, keep in mind that the sentences in your letter must not be about you and how you blew it. How awful that must have been for you — the very man you looked to for protection, was the biggest threat to your sanity.
Besides she is focused on her pain, so is open to only hearing from you about how she feels. It is wise to avoid citing what you think are legitimate reasons for your behavior.
For years you begged for help, but I defended myself and ignored you. To avoid offending a hardened woman who is suspicious and judgmental towards all of your motives requires that a letter be meticulously worded and carefully formatted.
She not only needs you to describe what she is feeling, but feel for her in her pain.
Descriptive language and figurative language are similar. And trust will not be restored if he makes declarations of the depth of his love and shows it through some kind of romantic gesture. Your wife knows you, so the exact letter might not impact your wife at all.
Possibly, she has heard you promise to change many times before, so is ready to mistrust whatever comes out of you. The following is an example of how a man who has withheld affection from his wife might write his third paragraph.
And we as husbands can have a similar power with our wives. I am sorry for doing that. Use that sentence structure -- describe her pain and then say how you caused it. Therefore, the only way I have found for a man to regain the trust of the woman he hurt is to empathize with her pain and communicate that empathy by compassionately describing to her her pain and what he did to cause it.
In this paragraph, with regret and empathy, it is important that you communicate all that you now understand about her and how devastated your poor reactions have left her. Reading through too many details or specific examples will bog her down and draw attention back to you.
In her mind you have zero credibility. In her mind she has no reason to believe any revelations you have come up with or promises you make.
Such a letter could not be copied by you and expected to heal the breach in your marriage. You were always so exhausted afterwards. Guys, your wife is aching for someone to validate her feelings and feel for her in her heartbreak. Yes, it would be nice if our wives would talk plainly.
She feels alone and she misses you even when you are home. Wife-oriented sentence As I look back over our marriage I realize now that all those times you tried to share your heart with me I would shut you down like you were attacking me or starting an argument. The goal is not to correct her misperceptions or what you believe to be her mistaken ideas.
Words cannot express my regret for letting you shoulder it all yourself. Paragraph 3, sample 7: Throughout your married life, all those times you thought she was complaining or starting arguments, she was sharing her heart with you.
What kinds of things did she accuse you of over the years? Unfortunately, because she shared her pain in a passionate or accusatory way, you responded like she was attacking and became defensive. Hearing her husband acknowledge his sins does not restore lost trust.
