Re: What Are The Long Term Effects Of An Affair?
I also wonder how "successful" Rs will do 10 years out or more. Will the BS be tempted after the kids are grown to look for greener pastures or will they just give in and stay? I know of one case where the couple lingered in misery for almost a decade and eventually called it quits. Think about it - your spouse cheated - you hit midlife or meet someone else - there really is no "oh my poor spouse would never do this to me so I just can't" going through your head at that moment, because they did do it to you and in some cases did it to you for YEARS. I just wonder how often that does happen in marriages where the couple has been in R for awhile and the Bs finally gets sick of living with it everyday.
