I have regretted never telling an old crush how I felt. For 10 years I used this person as a comparison to anyone I met, until I met my wife. The last few years of my marriage have been more than difficult. I have suggested counseling, tried to change things to make it better, but it is just getting worse for me. I won’t physically cheat, but I recently had a nostalgic moment, and discovered a way to contact the old crush. I feel that if I contact them, it could further injure my marriage. Face to face contact would be an extremely unlikely occurrence.
Is it okay to contact the crush? Should I talk to my spouse about it first? Should I leave it alone?
