Seeking expert testimony is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective

Dear friend,

I understand that you two are in love with each other and share a long bond that has not been broken.

However, you both have other commitments. If you not both willing to give up those commitmemts and in doing so hurt other innocent people - spouses and children and grandchildren - then you should not go down that road.

You will both pay a price, and that price might act to destroy your relationship with each other.

Once you weaken and open that door you will invite unexpected circumstances.

Sometimes it takes a lot of courage and strength to do the right thing.

To help you decide, take a piece of paper and divide it into two colulmns: Left/Pros and Right/Cons. List all of the pros and cons in the two columns. All you may gain and all you may lose, and let this help you rid.

I hope this gives you some guidance in deciding the course of action that is best for you.

I shall keep you in my prayers.

Warm regards,m
