• Learn from the experience. An affair can be a learning experience. As much as it can leave you feeling shattered emotionally, working through your issues can help you avoid reenacting a similar scenario down the road.

Ironically, similar steps may help if you are on the receiving end of the infidelity. You will most likely also feel emotionally broken and need to address your feelings, your spouse’s and work to rebuild trust and strengthen your relationship. Contrary to what you may feel at the moment, there is life after an affair.
