Give Our Marriage a Second Chance


I am writing you this letter to express my love for you. I know we have been through some tough times, but then we never started our marriage off on the right foot. We have been apart now for six months, and it has been the hardest time of my life. I tried to steel myself to keep you from hurting me again and built a wall of defense around my heart. Now you have come back into my life again, and the wall has begun to crumble.

There is nothing more in this world that I want other than to start our marriage over again. I know that you are just as scared as I am, and you are afraid to take the steps to do that. I want us to forget about the past that brought us the hurt and pain that we caused each other and that caused us to start all over again. I want you to feel the passion, affection, love, and care that I have to offer you and that I have never been able to show you. We found something special together, and I don't want to give that up. We need to give this marriage the fundamental chance it never had. I know we can do it if we try. I have always said that you are my soul mate and the one I would be with forever.

My heart is here waiting for you and ready to put it on the line again to try to make our marriage work. Will you do the same? I am taking this second chance and having faith this marriage will work. I need you to do the same, or we might as well call it quits now. I believe that God will give us the support that we need to make this love last forever if we do our parts. We invited him into our marriage nearly five years ago and asked Him to watch over us and protect us. I believe He will do so again.

There is no other way to say it other than, "I love you, Baby, with all my heart and soul." I am not ready to give up on us. But I need your help and your love, too, because I cannot do this on my own.

It's not necessary for you to respond to this letter. I just wanted to express how I felt inside. I just want you to know how much I love you and I miss you. You will see how happy we can be together, and you won't regret it.
