How Long Does a Marriage Last After Infidelity?

Do We Have a Chance?

It really depends on the individuals involved. But most of all, it is vital to open up communication in a way you’ve likely never done before. It’s important, as the partner who cheated, to show your spouse this isn’t something that will happen regularly.
