I have been with my boyfriend for 7 years. We have traveled many places. We maintain a household together and basically built a life together.
Three years ago I cheated with an ex-boyfriend, but eventually decided to stay with my current boyfriend. I really had to build trust with him again and it has not been easy. I’m not making any excuses I know I was wrong. As selfish as cheating was, I sometimes regret staying with him. I feel like all the work in the relationship has been for nothing as our relationship isn’t growing or progressing at all. Since getting engaged, shortly after the incident, we haven’t set a date for the wedding and every time I try to talk about marriage he gets mad.
