Marriage has its ups and downs, and on occasion you might need to restore your marriage. I know you can’t turn back the clock and undo a mistake that you made that has caused pain and frustration in your marriage. However, you might consider writing an apology letter and mailing it to your spouse. Listed below is an example letter from a husband to his wife.
Hello love of my life,
“I just wanted to write you this letter to apologize for the mistakes that I have made over the last few years. I have hurt and embarrassed you and for doing so I’m deeply sorry. I know that you have given your heart and soul to make our marriage work and I have taken your love for granted.
I’m guilty of not being the man I’m supposed to be and the husband that you deserve. I wouldn’t blame you if you packed up and left me but I hope you will give me a chance to restore your trust and love and affection for me and our marriage.
I have no excuses for the wrongs that I have done and the way I have treated you. I would give anything if I could undo what I did so that you wouldn’t have to go through the pain, frustration and disappointment that you have gone through.
I realize that my words have no meaning unless they are backed up by my actions. I hope you can find it in your heart to allow me to prove my love to you. I will give 150 percent effort to be the husband you deserve and desire.
I know it will not be easy for you to trust that I will do right by you because I have broken promises I made to you before. My heart is broken and I’m certain that I will not make the same mistakes again. All I ask is one more opportunity to restore our marriage and your love for me.”
Love always and forever, your love bucket “
