The groundbreaking book on recovering from infidelity and surviving marital affairs. . . and coming out stronger and more in love than ever. Courageous, bold, honest.
Brian (husband): After nearly two decades of marriage to a sexy, loving woman - with whom I made love almost every night - I came home from work one evening and told her I was moving out, leaving her for another woman. Lucky for me, my wife refused to give up on our marriage. We are now closer and more committed than ever. What you're probably wondering is, if I loved my wife so much, why did I do it? In this book, I have answered that question.
Danielle (teenage daughter): When my father told me he was leaving my mother for another woman, I felt it was me he was abandoning. I wondered "what has my whole life been so far, a joke?" In this book, I share the truth about my feelings
Anne (wife): My Husband's affair became the best thing that ever happened to me, yes eventually, but it was also the most devastating of my life. There was a time when I wondered if I could even live through it.
What people are saying. . . "Riveting. . . Mesmerizing. . . I couldn't put the book down. "
"My Husband's Affair" deliberately removes itself from providing "the theoretical and psychological" explanations for the why of infidelity and instead purposes to take readers on a gut-honest, courageous, straight-from-the-heart journey into the lives of a couple/family who endured the aftermath of an affair. A must-read before couples, facing infidelity, make life decisions they may later regret. This book provides an alternative to the expected. . . hope that it's not over.

This book makes a wonderful contribution to the growing willingness of couples to "break the code of silence" and share their experience with affairs in order to help others. It offers clear insight into the pain involved as well as great hope for the power to recover and rebuild the marriage.

For too long too many have suffered in silence because of the stigma associated with affairs. This book gives an honest look at the reality of betrayal and offers hope through the testimony of one brave couple.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I truly don't understand the bad reviews on this site. I have a NOOK, therefore I buy my books on here but before you make a decision please go to Amazon and read the reviews on there first. This book is amazing and yes, they are a Christian couple but in no way are they doing any preaching or ramming religion down your throat. My husband had an affair two years ago. with his ex-wife. We decided to stay together and work through it. I was amazed at how much our story mirrored theirs and was pleased to see we really did take the right steps in healing our marriage. We recently purchased this book book because after two years the ex contacted my husband again with a sham health scare she was going through. He didn't immediately confide in me because he believed it was innocent and he was just providing comfort. When she asked him to come over he realized the mistake and told her in no uncertain terms that was not an option and that he was no longer going to speak with her. He then told me about it and of course I came unglued. It took nearly a week of non stop talking to convince me that it truly was innocent on his part and that he really didn't see it as the wrong thing to do until she tried to cross the line. That's when we decided to get this book. It's told from both sides and it helped both of enormously. We were finally able to figure out the real reason for the affair and are taking steps to ensure it never happens again. Most importantly the book helped my husband to see why it's not up for discussion that all ties must be broken with the third party and the importance of never withholding any information just because you know it will hurt your spouse. I can only guess that the reason for the low reviews on this site is that those 5 bad reviews were people that both parties were not 100% committed to repairing and making their marriages even better than before. Or possibly only one of the spouses read the book and are bitter because if both parties are truly in love with each other and they read this together you will honestly end up with a marriage that can with stand ANYTHING! I can honestly say that today I once again trust my husband 100% and give this book the credit for getting me to that point as it gave us an opportunity to sit down and share our thoughts and feelings after each chapter. So please take the time to look at the reviews on other sites. If you are even looking at this book it means you are hurting and in need of help. This book will change your life. Regardless of whether or not you decide to stay together, the information contained within will help you to be the best person you can be as well as strengthening all of your relationships.
Despite the hype around this book, there is little information in it that would assist others. It is schmaltzy and religious - and whilst a real experience for the people involved, is of little help to others. An enormous amount of navel gazing and not much substance - stick with books by trained psychologists is my advice. See below for a helpful book.
