At Marriage Helper, we are experts at understanding affairs. Why? Because we understand, from research, personal experience, and experience with thousands of couples, why affairs happen, why affairs end, and how to fix a marriage affected by an affair.
You probably never meant for it to happen. It’s not as if you went looking for a lover. However, once you fell in love with another person than your spouse, things got rather intense. I am Marriage Expert Joe Beam, and I have been where you are. I want to share with you what I learned from my own personal experience.
You are not quite sure how you got yourself into the affair, and even less sure about how to end an affair. You love your paramour but hate the sneaking and cheating. You vacillate between ending the affair and giving yourself totally to it. You feel intense emotions for your lover, but even as you tell yourself, or your lover, that everything is going to be wonderful, deep within a small voice says that it will not be.
You suspected it long before you knew it for sure.Your spouse changed but you couldn’t quite explain the changes in a way that seemed to make sense to anyone else. You thought that you were imagining things, being insecure in thinking your spouse had someone else.
