When I heard that my wife was having an affair, it was like someone had just hit me on the head with a baseball bat, and I definitely didn’t see it coming. I felt numb and paralyzed.

“…Life After The Affair is a must read for anyone who has been in, will be in, or is presently in a relationship – marriage or not.
