APR: When Infidelity Is Revealed

When infidelity is revealed, whether through disclosure or discovery, the couple is in crisis. A trauma has occurred in the relationship. You as caregiver have become the emergency room doctor. The injury must be assessed and a treatment plan begun. The couple should also be referred to a professional marriage counselor.

This month’s tool will summarize some key concepts to keep in mind when a couple initially reveals to you that there has been unfaithfulness in their marriage.
