Coping with Infidelity – Michele Weiner-Davis Q&A

Although infidelity is an extremely difficult issue to cope with, it doesn’t need to be a marriage dealbreaker. You should anticipate the ups and downs associated with the road to recovery when dealing with infidelity. However, once you and your spouse fight through to the other side, many times your marriage can be stronger than where it was prior to the affair.

    Isn’t the sacred marital covenant broken by adultery? How can it possibly ever be the same? And how can it be better? I hear this all the time, but I never read or hear any actual empirical, hard proof of marriages being better after infidelity. This always seems vague and related to “hopium” to me. How can a precious vase be better after being shattered into a thousand pieces? It will always be missing vital physical matter and will be weaker, no matter if you manage to glue it back together and stand it back up again. The odds of it holding any water are very slim, aren’t they?

    Unless a betrayed husband or betrayed wife is given a frontal lobotomy or has an accident that induces severe amnesia, there is NO WAY they will ever feel the same about their wayward spouse again. Full stop. They can forgive. That doesn’t mean they should stick around for the sh*t show the adulterer deliberately created with a cost-benefits analysis that put their marriage low on the totem pole of priorities. Only people who are particularly adept at self-delusion would be able to sleep next to a wayward (or “former wayward” whatever that distinction without a difference means) spouse and not think of the trauma of the betrayal. We read and hear about SO MANY betrayed spouses who have a recurrent surge of trauma 5, 10, 15 years later and realize they made a tremendous and tragic mistake by trying to reconcile with an adulterer.
