Hi. I am new to the site so here goes. I am in my second marriage. My first was almost 18 yrs long and I left because we had become roomates. Then I met (future) husband #2; left my 17 yr old recent highschool graduate (son)& moved a state away for my future 2nd hubby. I have NEVER quit loving my first and have guilt about the way that I left. In the mean time I have talked with my ex on several occasions and he wants me back. I now have a gorgeous 3 yr old with my 2nd and an 8 yr old stepson. I have TRIED to make this marriage work (& has he) but I feel COMPELLED to see if my feelings are true (I think they are) with my ex. My 2nd hubby also has LOTS of baggage which he is aware of and tries to deflect but they are still there. (my stepson has Asperger's & as such some behavioral issues. I miss my uncomplicated life from before. I have only told part of the story for room & time's sake but MOSTLY I am wondering how many of you still have love in your heart for your ex?(Ihave been divorced now 4.5yrs & married for almost as long)
PLease note that other than this (& prior to) I am basically boring and stable. I promise. Just want to know how common strong feelings of love and a desire to try again are for others in similiar situations.
