YOU CAN HEAL!
When you hear about an affair, you generally hear about it in the context of the affair resulting in the end of a marriage. What is rarely talked about openly are the many affairs that occur that do not end the marriage. When a couple decides to work through the affair and move forward together, they often choose to keep it very private, with only a few close confidantes being privy to this information.
