Episode 015: After the Affair: Can We Recover?


What if you found out that your partner was having an affair? Can you still rebuild the marriage? How do you navigate getting through or getting past an affair?

There are some people that just cannot recover from that level of betrayal. It’s just too much for them that they feel it’s best to dissolve the relationship and move on from it. There are also couples who, while they may want to end the relationship, have many constraining factors that keep them in, whether it be their kids or a house and so many other factors. 

If you find yourself in this position and you’re confused about staying or moving on, just know that there is hope – and there is help available.

About 70% of couples who go through some form of affair or infidelity are able to recover and they stay married. And about 50% of those couples who did the work ended up having a healthier relationship than they did before the affair occurred. 

In this episode, you will hear:

  • The impact of an affair on the marriage
  • The tendency to act quickly to minimize the damage
  • The impact of the affair on the injured partner
  • The impact of the affair on the involved partner
  • The 3-step recovery process
  • A quick script for the involved spouse
