Falling out of love with the one you're married to and falling for someone else calls for signs to look into the marriage of what's missing or going amiss. I sense the guilt in you for having had such an experience and you want to give your marriage a chance.

Before moving on to working on your marriage, look deeper into what made this happen in the first place. That is where you will find the roots on which you need to work on.
One of the most common reason as to why people fall out of love in a marriage and fall in love with some one else is that their needs are not fulfilled in the marriage. Explore what your reasons were. Once you have them figured out, explore options as to what you can do to make things better. What needs to change about the relationship, from your side as well as your spouse's. Then slowly begin to start working on them, one small step at a time.
