The Destructive Force of Infidelity on Families

the point of no return

Have You Reached the Point of No Return?

A man recently wrote to us asking for help. He and his wife were separated because of serious relationship problems and he wanted to repair his marriage.

When the Affair Partners Work Together

When the Affair Partners Work Together

I was reading somewhere that nearly 75% of men meet their affair partners at work. I can only imagine that a similar statistic exists for women as well.
