Did You Have an Affair and Are Worried Your Partner Will Leave?
The scenario is a common one: You feel unloved and have an affair. But your partner finds out. Both of you are devastated. You never wanted the marriage to end or to hurt your spouse. Can a marriage be saved after you stray and cause deep pain to your partner? And how can you solve the initial problem that led to your unhappiness in the first place?
At Marlborough House, we understand the challenges couples face in a relationship. We have a team of highly experienced therapists and professionals who can work with you using the best method to treat your particular problems.
Did You Feel Unloved in Your Marriage?
Statistics show that about 40 per cent of woman and 60 per cent of men will have an affair. The reason is often that one spouse doesn't feel loved or appreciated anymore. It's important to keep dating and to keep the romance alive even after marriage. But many couples stop. They rarely or never spend time alone together just to have fun or to hang out. As a result, they stop talking and relating to each other.
Did You Always Wonder What Life Might Have Been Like with Someone Else?
You might have felt lonely in your marriage, and that made it more likely for the affair to take place. A common reason people have affairs is to see what life would be like if they were with a person who paid attention to them. Maybe you felt as if you weren't getting all you wanted from life, and the affair spiced things up. The affair made you feel sexy, wanted and special.
Here's Why Affairs Don't Last
The newness and excitement people get from affairs don't last. Plus, it's practically impossible to sustain an affair indefinitely. If you stop the affair and concentrate instead on your partner and your marriage, you'll probably be surprised at how much better your marriage can be.
Can a Marriage Be Saved After an Affair?
The answer is, yes, a marriage can survive an affair, but there is work to be done. First, the underlying reason for the affair needs to be addressed: one partner felt unloved. That's not OK and signals a problem in the marriage. Additionally, the other partner needs to work through the pain and the betrayal the affair caused. That person needs to learn to trust again. Both problems are difficult for couples to work through by themselves, but they can fix their problems with the proper guidance and the right attitude.
