Recognizing the Signs
Stopping It Before It Starts
Recovering from the Damage
One-half of the young and middle-aged couples in this country will at some time struggle with the painful and destructive results of an affair. Can these marriages be saved? Can the number of shaken marriages be reduced?
Psychologist and counselor Henry Virkler has some answers. In this vital book he describes the devastating effects of adultery, how couples can take preventive steps to reduce the likelihood of it happening in their own marriages, and what to do if it does happen. He writes for professional counselors, for pastors, and for those laypersons who find themselves wanting to understand the situation better.
While the author is a committed Christian psychologist and counselor, he warns that faith doesn't automatically safeguard couples from sexual temptation. He shows
- how to avoid "innocent" situations that can easily lead to an affair;
- what you can do to strengthen your marriage and reduce the possibility that you or your partner will be tempted in an affair;
- how to tell if your mate is having an affair, and what to do if your worst fears prove true;
- how adultery does not need to lead to divorce if approached in the right way.
