Have you been a victim of infidelity in your marriage?
Then you know that surviving infidelity and the ensuing
emotional trauma to save your marriage and avoid divorce
will take time and hard work.

a kind attributes that you bring to the relationship.
This will serve as an unsurpassed ego boost that will eventually restore
and rebuild your shattered self-esteem and confidence.

more engaged marriages than they had before.
