Apology Love Letters

When it comes to love and marriage, a heartfelt letter of apology will often share the passion and qualities found in traditional love letters.

 

Saying sorry to your husband or wife, lover or 'Ex' is never easy because there's so much at stake. As a result, writing an apology letter for hurting someone you love is much more difficult, because passion and heartache always leads to greater regret and remorse.

That doesn't mean that apologizing to friends and family who you love is easier, because when love is involved it's never easy.
