Hi! We’re Linda and Doug and the purpose of this site is to share our story in the hopes that it will help those who are suffering, or have suffered from an emotional affair – or any type of affair for that matter.
What may be unique about this blog, is that we will share our story and the underlying emotions that each of us felt along the way. We will also be open to answering any questions and offer any kind of help that we can to any of you who feel compelled to ask or make comments.
We will also present tips and resources that we have utilized on our journey that have been highly effective for us, and should be for you too, whether you are in an affair or are a victim of an affair.
We are not psychologists or marriage counselors, or professional writers for that matter. Rather, we’re just a normal couple that has been married for more than 30 years that has actually lived through a devastating emotional affair and have successfully mended our marriage.
Our sincere hope is that you can learn from our experiences and from the community that exists on this site so that you can save your marriage, recover from the affair and ultimately strengthen your relationship.
Things to do First
If you haven’t already, please take a moment to subscribe to our blog and when you do you will receive our popular free report: “The 10 Most Important Lessons About Surviving Infidelity.” All you have to do is click this link to get started.
After doing the above, you may want to start reading some of our posts. With over 1000 of them on the site it can be tough to figure out where to start.
It would be pretty safe to say that the older posts would be more appropriate to someone who might have recently discovered an affair or is involved in one. However, even the newer posts resonate with people regardless of what stage of recovery they are in and their comments will reflect that.
Since this blog documents our journey over time, you will see a natural progression in topics. There is a List of Categories as well as a monthly list of all of our posts going back to December 2009 on the Archives page.
Here are several articles that have been favorites of our readers and a few more that are our personal favorites.
