Advice for Spouses Suffering from Their Ashley Madison Cheaters

Well, there's going to be a lot of people who are going to go through what I did about five years ago. I feel for them. It's horrific.

If that's you - welcome to my blog. I started this blog after I discovered my husband had a girlfriend. Yep, sure did - for 8 months. Crazy, I know, but hey, you've got something crazy going on now too.

Look - it's not easy - actually, it's one of the most difficult things you'll ever go through.

What's most important to understand at this point in your life is that it will get better and you WILL survive this... It may not seem like it, but you will.

The Ashley Madison thing has basically just proved what many women had already suspected of their husbands. If they didn't suspect, they weren't looking hard enough. They were in denial. It's easy to do, but never good to do.

You can't be in denial when you have proof...and honestly, proof is the beginning of the recovery. You wouldn't be in infidelity recovery, if you didn't find out for sure.

My advice right now besides going back to maybe my first post ever on this blog? Breathe. Take it one minute, one hour, one day at a time. Don't make any decisions right now. Just step back and take care of yourself and if you have kids, take care of them. Each day will present some unique challenges - do what you must do... You are in survival mode right now. SURVIVE IT.

Until next time... hang in there.
