EXCERPT: Nearly one in five married people will cheat on their spouse, with men being more likely to step out than women, according to the General Social Survey at the National Opinion Research Center. An affair can mean many things — boredom, a lack of trust, anger, sociopathy — but does it automatically mean the end of the marriage? Not necessarily. Many women (and men) have taken back a cheating spouse and gone on to have a loving, happy life together. These situations, however, should be automatic deal-breakers… “If your cheating spouse has spent all of the family savings on his mistress, there have been breaches in two major areas of one’s marriage: monogamy and financial security. It’s hard enough to recover from infidelity at all, let alone infidelity in two such significant areas in a relationship.” —Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D., a psychologist in Los Angeles and relationship specialist.”
