Things are a lot better in my marriage. I can tell he is present because he comments on almost every move I make. Although he is normally attentive, he is now doing more listening, instead of selective listening. I told him I recognized how he's more willing to accept the truth. He still dodges it, but he comes back around faster. I'm looking forward to feeling that we are at our best. I am glad I can be good to him. I harbor no resentment. I am not bitter and I know this has a lot to do with why our marriage is better.
