How far would you go for love?

I am meaning, what would you withstand for love? Could you go through hell, and still be there for your loved one? Well, here is why I am asking. When me and my husband Nick met, I was in an abusive relationship with another man. I couldn't leave him because he always threatened to commit suicide. I ended up cheating on him, with my current husband, Nick. Well, when my abusive fiance found out, he beat Nick up. He beat him up pretty bad, but Nick still wanted to be with me. When I finally told my fiance I wanted to be with another man, he did commit suicide. Nick felt to blame, as did I. I then went crazy and ended up having casual relations with many different men. Nick still wanted to be with me. Even after all my relations with other men. Then, after a few months of us being together, I went crazy again, and took all my aggression out on Nick. Everyday, for almost 2 years I had problems. I even had to be hospitlized. That is when I found out I was bipolar. Nick STILL wanted to be with me! He went through so much having to deal with guilt, feeling at blame for my fiance's suicide, having to deal with my infidelity, and me and my crazy spells for two years! How much would you go through for love? If you really loved someone, would you go through what my husband went through just to be with someone? Now me and my husband are very happy, and very stable. I am on meds and not so crazy anymore. But I still look back and realize how much my husband has been through to be with me, and I realize he really does love me.

You are a very lucky girl and tell your husband I respect him for being so brave.And yes there a timespace where I felt I could do anything for love and I did do that cos I was obsessed with her at the same time not possessive.Like if I had a bad dream abt her being in trouble I'd go to her place just to check on her even in the middle of the night, cos I have this weird sense when I think of something 8times out of 10 it really hapeens.I have had many such instances including my own road accidents where I have foreseen them just a few moments before and BANG there it happens.SO i was pretty crazy abt her but Now we are through and dont feel so inclined to go over the top unless ofcourse I find someone who'll make me do that by just being a part of my life.

Your love story with your husband is really inspiring. He loves you "not only because of, but also inspite of" that is true love. I have not yet encountered that much problem in my married life but i know i would walk on fire for my wife.

I think he really does love you. after all what you've been through and what he has endured to protect you and keep you safe and happy. I hope you do not commit the same mistakes in the past. You have a great life now and even better..., a loving husband who's always been there for you. Thanks for sharing your experiences. Cheers!

You are a very lucky lady. Your husband truely loves you and I can see this just by knowing that he has stood by you during all your crazy times. I would hope that I would be able to stick by my husband regardless what happens in our relationship. Congrats on getting yourself help and enjoy your life with that great man.
