I was in this situation, albeit my relationship was 11 years, not 20, but had been all but sexless for years.
The first time I was intimate with someone after the relationship was over was incredible, I had forgotten what it was like to be desired physically like that.
I didn’t resist love. My relationship had been dead in the water for some time, and I wanted what I knew I’d been missing out on for so long.
What did my girlfriend do to make me fall in love with her? She was her. I can’t put it any better than that. She is the right person for me.

Though I've never been married and never been in a relationship that long, my only thought of what it would be like for some people would be to be standing at the edge of a cliff. You need to jump across and there are only 2 possibilities. One is that you will fall to your death (the relationship not working out) or you jump across and land safely on the other side.
I can't imagine anything like committing your life to someone and planning a life together for it to all just end. Divorce is never easy, and it doesn't get talked about nearly enough. But it is possible to love again! So many people have and will continue to flourish after divorce!1
