Healing from an affair is possible if your approach is right. In fact, we believe that it is not only possible, but that an affair can become an unprecedented opportunity if you choose to use it for that purpose.
Marriages don’t end because of affairs. They end because of how people deal or don’t deal with the aftermath of them.
A divorce is not the result of marital problems including infidelity. They happen because people do not effectively repair the parts of the relationship that are damaged from it, and they adopt attitudes, behaviors, and faulty assumptions that are toxic and corrosive to what is left of a very vulnerable relationship. Marriages end because of a death in intimacy between people and the failure to make the relationship safe again to love fully.
Learning how to love and repair what’s been damaged by designing anew are both choices available to you right now.
While no two couples are exactly alike, there are similarities in the “tasks” required of them for healing from infidelity. Attending to those tasks effectively and efficiently can determine if a marriage succeeds or fails in the aftermath of an affair.
Each couple’s journey is unique…
Each couple’s journey is unique and therefore your choice for how to save your marriage after infidelity and best heal from the trauma of an affair must be as well.

This is one of the most personal and enlightening books I have ever read on affairs and healing from betrayal. This book is a dialogue one couple had over a long time period, and it gives the reader insight on what the processes of honesty, transparency, forgiveness, and rebuilding trust are all about. I recommend everyone read it.
