A Book on Surviving Infidelity

Author: WHAT’S DONE IN THE DARK: Affair-Proofing and Recovery from Infidelity-A Self Help Guide for Couples (2017)
Research tells us that approximately two-thirds of the marriages that experience an affair that impacts their relationship will survive according to Snyder, Baucom and Gordon of Getting Past the Affair. Unfortunately only about half of those marriages will be stronger without getting significant outside help. This means that one third of these relationships end after an affair, one third are worse off and only one third actually improve.
What’s Done in the Dark is a new book on both prevention and treatment. It helps couples avoid becoming an “infidelity statistic.” It also has a systematic approach to rebuilding a relationship when an affair has occurred.
It helps couples affair-proof their marriage.
It provides five guidelines for insuring faithfulness.
It helps couples resolve conflicts quickly.
It deepens mutual trust within a marriage.
It keeps a marriage from becoming marginal.
It enables couples to learn the four “A’s” for developing emotional intimacy in their relationship.
It helps couples rejuvenate their love lives.
It encourages couples to deepen their faith and spirituality.
Engaged and young married couples are often the most vulnerable to affairs. Prevention is the key for them to avoid infidelity. The first few years of their marriages are often the most difficult and a prime time for them to think that “the grass is greener elsewhere.” This book is a way for them to strengthen their relationship before it become vulnerable to the heartache and regret that affairs often cause.
For those couples who have already been affected by the pain and devastation of infidelity, there is a way back to recovery of your marriage. There are no easy steps but it is possible. What’s Done in the Dark has helped marriages survive infidelity and become better relationships than prior to the betrayal.
