It’s hard to believe… after all you’ve been through together… You did so well together for so long. You’ve been married for years, maybe decades. You may have raised kids who are now grown and out of the house. You’ve most likely suffered through financial difficulties, family crises, and personal catastrophes.
And now you’re wondering if it’s all over. Has the marriage you have worked for and cherished for so long finally run its course? Is this really the end?
Coping with an affair (or other traumatic event in your marriage) is one of the most difficult emotional experiences a human being can have. It’s complicated by the fact that there are only two people who can really decide whether or not the marriage is over: you and your spouse. No one else can make this decision for you. In this article I want to explore why that’s true and give you some insight on ways to consider staying in or leaving your marriage.
