The crisis of infidelity does not have to end your relationship.
But a lot of what happens after the revelation of an affair depends on whether or not the couple gets help from a well trained couples counselor who knows what to do and how to navigate the stages of the recovery. Recovering from an affair is one the most difficult relationship problems because the revelation of an affair is a traumatic event for the betrayed partner.
When an affair is revealed, it starts a crisis for all people involved in the extramarital triangle.
Popular thinking about affairs and the recovery from them is clouded by myths.
Whether or not your marriage can be saved depends on whether the partners can follow some important steps.
If both members of the couple decide to stay together and work on the relationship with a couples counselor the first item on the agenda has to be how to go back to feeling safe again in the relationship.
A well-trained couples counselor can help figure out the steps to get back on track.
