I read this book after my partner cheated. I bought a copy for him, and he is also reading it. It SAVED our relationship. I was ready to end it after 7 years together, but found this book.

This book is truly a must-read for anyone who has expeienced this delicate situation. I found out four months ago today that my husband of nine years had a short-term affair with a friend of mine. A friend that, to my face, was a confidant and someone that I trusted deeply. Behind my back she was getting information from me on our marriage so that she could use that to turn my husband against ME in hopes that he'd be with her. This has been a very traumatic ordeal however, my husband read the book as well and realized through this and counseling the damage that he had done. Plus, helped ME to realize what caused the affair in the first place and how to keep it from happening again. I also have learned how to manage my anger with this person who manipulated my husband and I most severly. It is a must-read because it deals with all aspects of the affair. Don't decide to end-it without the help this book offers.

When I found out that my husband of 34 years had a longtime affair, I was sure the hurt would never go away. I now see that it's more important to understand why it happened and make things better for our future together instead of dwelling on the past.

I found this book by looking on the internet after finding out that my husband of almost 8 years was having a short term affair. I was in so much pain at the time & still am. It has only been 3 weeks since finding out. However after reading this book I am not ready to end our marriage. This book helped me to see all sides of the affair. And the things that I can do to make sure that this never happens again to us. It doesn't blame the partner that has been cheated on but puts the blame exactly on the partner it needs to go to. I have asked my husband to read it also. I think anyone that has been through this terrible ordeal of infidelity needs to read this book.

Don-David Lusterman, a psychologist practicing in Baldwin, New York, believes that couples who work hard can save their marriages following an affair: "People often find that once infidelity is discovered and its aftereffects are behind them, their relationship is stronger than before, and subsequent infidelity is unlikely." This isn't true only of married couples--Lusterman points out that people in long-term, committed relationships, whether straight or gay, face the same devastating emotions and have to go through a similar rebuilding process if they want to remain together after one has strayed. Whether or not a troubled couple chooses to stay together, Lusterman says the best outcome is when both partners experience changes and new insights into their lives. He provides several case studies in which couples began to regain their trust through new communication, and instructs on the kind of feelings-expressing language that can help. (He also provides a section on finding a good therapist.) This book will help people on either side of an affair begin to understand what's going on, and help them find the resources they need to continue that quest. --Ben Kallen
