It’s not as uncommon as you might think. Affairs. In Christian marriages. From one-night stands, to ongoing deeply emotional extra-marital relationships–with or without sex. It happens for varied reasons. But the good news is there is a wealth of resources and help on the topic. For the adulterer. For the victims of adultery. And even for “the other woman.” And there are many success stories. Like this one. And this one. Where God has restored many marriages experiencing this devastation.
Oh, and if you think or believe that an affair won’t or can’t possibly happen to your marriage, that makes you a prime candidate for it happening. To learn more, watch the below video.
If you or someone you know is in an affair, a victim of an affair, or contemplating an affair, I could not recommend more the book called, “Surviving an Affair,” written by the guy in the above video, Dr. Willard F. Harley.
The book is a guide to understanding and surviving every aspect of infidelity— from the beginning of an affair through the restoration of the marriage. The book covers:
- why affairs begin and end
- how to end an affair
- how to restore the marriage after the affair
- how to manage resentment, and
- how to rebuild trust
It also guides you step-by-step from the devastating blow of infidelity to a loving and trusting marriage. Dr. Willard is a Christian but writes from a professional point of view after counseling married couples for decades who have undergone the tragedy of infidelity.
Question: Other than the Bible and the book mentioned in this post, what other resources do you recommend for couples undergoing this situation? What do you think of the above video? To leave a comment, click here.
