Because not everyone admits it, statistics on the incidence of extramarital affairs are unreliable. But one thing is certain: cheating is rampant. Every year, millions of spouses discover their partners have been unfaithful. The discovery of infidelity has devastating effects on marriage; it rocks the very foundation upon which relationships are based. It wreaks emotional havoc on both spouses who typically have no clue how to recover.
Healing from infidelity is no easy task. It requires courage, commitment, stick-to-it-iveness and, most importantly, a clear road map for moving beyond the pain to creating a loving, trusting and passionate relationship. Yet, despite the herculean challenges ahead, most betrayed partners want to stay married. However, they would like to feel safe and close to their partners again. They just don’t know how.
To further complicate matters, when couples seek professional help, many therapists aren’t trained to deal with this complicated crisis. Generic therapy skills simply do not work. Marriages are often declared dead, not because of the severity of the problems in the relationship, but due to therapists’ lack of relevant skills. Couples in crisis are in need of down-to-earth guidance and support to bring their marriages back from the brink.
