    A reviewer

    I did not find this book helpful at all. The examples given in the book were not applicable especially as to personality types of the betrayed spouse and the types of men who have affairs. They did not apply to my situation at all. This book seemed to indicate that betrayed wives and their spouses have some type of disfunctional personality that led to the betrayal. That is not true. Good people in good marriages have affairs. The book didn't even touch on the subject of child-centered marriages and how that fact alone can make a marriage vulnerable to an affair. Complete honesty is one of the most important things that will help heal a marriage. I found that this book led the betrayed spouse to be dishonest with her husband in order to save/retain the marriage while handling the wayward spouse with kid gloves in order keep from pushing him away from the marriage. The wayward spouse has committed a grievace offense against the marriage (one that I compare to a death) and in order to rebuild trust and make the marriage better than ever, they must cease all contact with the affair partner and be totally accountable for their whereabouts. This book insinuated that the wayward spouse should not be treated like a child and made to be accountable. I find this totally offensive. Also offensive is the fact that the book states that you can't expect the wayward spouse to cease all contact immediately - that there are issues to resolve such as clothes left at the affair partner's house, etc. Who cares about stupid clothes? That should be the least of their concern! The main concern should be repairing the marriage and a marriage can't be repaired until the third party is cut out of the picture all together. My advice - don't read this book - read more helpful books such as Not Just Friends and My Husband's Affair Became the Best Thing that Ever Happened to Me and His Needs, Her Needs. These books will help you repair your marriage and they empathize in a healthy way to both spouses.

    I also feel this book was a waste of money. I felt there was too

    I also feel this book was a waste of money. I felt there was too much blame on the wife & too much of the repair work was dumped on her. A minor mention near the end that it isn't her fault he cheated is not enough to shore up the "theories" in this book that a marriage can be saved if she makes the effort.

    Save your money

    Although this book has a few good thoughts, it doesn't really offer help. It uses textbook cases as examples, and if they don't apply to you (they didn't apply to me), reading them is a waste of time. Also, the few plans given for 'help' are a joke; guided imagery doesn't help heal the hurt of an affair. Don't waste your time on this book. There are many other much more beneficial books available. My spouse had an emotional affair that lasted for 18 months, and I got much more out of Gary Neuman's book.

    Buy another book!

    This book made me feel worse than I did before reading it. It gives more reasons for the affair occuring than tips on how to repair yourself and the marriage.
