Words of Wisdom from Dr. Victoria Holroyd:
Couples really need help from a therapist to help them process and have the difficult conversations that are too painful to talk about on their own--going it alone rarely works for couples. It is also important to make sure that both partners actually want to improve the relationship, and that the affair is over--the affair needs to be over for effective couples therapy. There is hope for relationships after an affair and the relationship can be even stronger than it was before the affair.
