An affair can destroy a committed relationship as well as break up the entire family. It creates feelings of pain, betrayal, depression, and loneliness, which can be extremely difficult for partners to repair. Forgiveness does not come easily.

Can Your Relationship Survive An Affair?

Indicators of whether a relationship can survive an affair are:

  1. How much empathy the affair partners shows for the pain caused
  2. The patience and compassion displayed by affair partners when their mates gets emotional
  3. The efforts made by affair partners to accept responsibility, become transparent and work to restore trust.

Facts to remember

  • Affairs can happen in good marriages.
  • Emotional affairs are forms of infidelity.
  • The major attraction in an affair is how the lover makes your partner feel about his or her self.
  • Most people that have an affair think talking about it to their mate will make matters worse. Actually talking about the affair openly helps the betrayed partner to heal.
