Marital Affairs and Affair Recovery
Relationships usually start off with the best of intentions.
There are great expectations and the hope that each partner will be able to continue to fulfill those expectations even as the marriage goes through life's transitions. When needs are not being met and one partner feels like the other does not value them the scene is set for a potential infidelity.
During the years that I have been in the practice of psychotherapy, working with couples who are struggling with recovery after an affair still presents a most difficult challenge. Each spouse must come to grips with the cracks in their relationship and face disappointment.
A marriage is not over when an affair occurs! It is often the case that once an affiar has been acknowledged, the couple can begin to rebuild and create an even stronger relationship than before..
Affair Recovery (see article on Affair Recovery) is a delicate process and should be handled with care and respect. A therapist must have experience, skill and an understanding of the differences that each couple brings to therapy.
Couples can come through this crisis in their relationship stronger and better equipped for the future (see my article Affairs: Myths and Facts).
