But that's just me.
Many betrayed spouses do NOT want to know all the details. Their mind movies are worse when they do.
It's a very personal decision. My advice would be to go with NOT getting the details first, and see how you do. If you still feel like you want them, then ask for a few and let yourself mull that over for a while and see if it helps. You can never undo the telling - once you know, you know.
Ditto with me.
