Over the years in my private practice I have helped numerous couples deal with challenging situation of overcoming an affair. Some couples decided to break up, while those who decided to stay together have worked through the trauma in their relationship.
When a person finds out that his or her partner has had an extramarital affair, feelings of betrayal, sadness, anger and abandonment may cast a painful shadow over everyday life. It takes time to reestablish trust and safety. If both partners are committed and putting in effort to making the relationship work, it can possible to make a full recovery from an affair.
