Over a year ago Linda wrote a post that talked about the fear that many of you have of another affair happening again. That fear applies to whether the affair could pick up again with the same affair partner or that a new affair might start with someone else.
There were quite a few comments to her post but not very many of you stated what you would do if another affair did happen.
From past comments one would assume that if it did, most of you would kick your spouse to the curb and quickly call your attorney. But is that really the case?
Our discussion this week…
If your spouse would ever have another affair, would you definitely end the marriage?
If you are the cheater, if you ever strayed again, would you expect that your spouse would want a separation and/or divorce?
Why or why not?
What sort of things have you (and/or your spouse) worked on, changed or done to better ensure that another affair will never happen?
Some might think that the answer is a pretty cut and dry, “Hell yes!” But you never know.
When we posted this question in a previous discussion, one reader responded this way:
There would be hell to pay! Not like this time with a broken heart and broken dreams, tears and screaming, therapy and bonding, forgiveness and effort. There would be a for sale sign in our front lawn, moving truck in the driveway and a check in my hand.
I sacrificed so much for him and our family and he treated me and our family with utter disrespect. This trauma has been the most exhausting all consuming ordeal I have ever gone through. And there is no way in hell I’m doing it again!!!!
We’re curious to read your comments!
