Healing After an Affair

Statements like “The marriage is over” do not have to be true. Many marriages survive an affair. Avoid a vengeance affair. Acknowledge hurt, betrayal, anger, distrust, and homicidal urges. Sometimes a temporary separation will allow for a cooling-down period.

Honest discussion about what happened and why is important. The why is more important than the what. Be careful about asking for all the gory details. It is human nature to want to know everything, but each revealed incident creates an image in your mind, which becomes difficult to forgive and let go. This process keeps marriage therapists very busy. The more gory details you know, the more images in your head, the longer it takes to heal.

Each person has two tasks. The person who had the affair has to be squeaky clean and scrupulously honest. The spouse who didn’t have the affair has to forgive and let go.

Some people hold the false belief that if they forgive, friends and family will see them as weak. Forgiving, letting go of the pain, and moving on after the deep wound of an affair requires great inner strength. As far as we know, only God can forgive and forget. We humans are cursed with memory and so the healing process requires forgiving and letting go of the hurt. Letting go demands personal discipline and is much more difficult if you have a vengeful, unforgiving personality.

How to Improve Your Marriage and Family Life

Study the skills necessary for success. Most of us subscribe to at least one magazine about hunting. Generally, there is a video, DVD or book in our collection to help us improve our hunting skills. What would happen in America if we annually read one article, or book, watched a video or DVD, or even went to seminar about improving our marriage and family life? Many of us believe relationships are private and we tend to fumble along interacting like our parents did. There is a “how to” article about every aspect of hunting. There is also a ton of information on doing better with the ones we love.

Patience is required to develop good hunting skills. Patience is absolutely essential in developing a healthy happy marriage. Raising kids is a long-term exercise in patience.

Hunting requires hand-eye coordination, mental focus, and the ability to remain emotionally calm when “buck fever” jumps on us. The same techniques of self calming, deep breathing, mental rehearsal and positive self talk we use in the field can work at home. Becoming angry or frustrated is a sure fire way to spook game or miss the shot. A tragic mistake too often made is to be emotionally positive in camp with buddies and in the field on the stalk but use our marriage and family as the emotional dump for all our negative feelings. Be patient and positive at home.

Humility visits our ego with regularity while hunting. A missed shot, a busted stalk, critter down wind of our stand, a boss longbeard refusing to come in the last ten yards have humbled everyone of us. Even if we are good at it we are going to have a bad day. Sometimes its hard to be humble with spouse or children because we are stubborn, proud, always have to be right, cannot apologize or are too perfectionistic. Well “partner” sit right down here at the table, eat you a big piece of humble pie and be a real genuine human with your family.

Passion characterizes people really into hunting. We love it. Healthy marriage and family life requires a passion for those we say we love. It comes from the heart. Wanting the best for them, celebrating small things, being interested in and helpful with things they like not just focused on our passion. I once asked a lady what she would like from her husband who was passionate about bird hunting and totally obsessed with an ole pointer. Without missing a beat this church going lady said, “I wish he would treat me as good as that damn dog.”

Becoming good at hunting requires overcoming failure. That’s why we call it huntin’ and not gettin’. Forget about the miss or the one that got away. Optimistically plan for the next opportunity to be in the woods. We often carry on an internal dialogue about what went wrong, how to learn from it, and what to do differently the next time. The same self-talk should go on when we have made a mistake in our primary relationships. Because we are dealing with humans who can communicate, apologize, tell them you love them, and make a commitment to learn and do differently the next time.

It takes time and money to become good at hunting. Most of us would be red faced embarrassed if we did a simple calculation of hours given to and dollars spent on a season of hunting. Fair is fair. Also spend the same time and bucks on fun things your spouse and kids want to do. If they like the woods take them with you, if they don’t, set a goal to give equally to what they enjoy. Give them our best not just the left overs.

The Slippery Slope to an Affair

Most affairs are slipped into over time. A person talks to someone and begins to form an inappropriate emotional intimacy separate from their spouse. It is a process beginning with fantasy, dwelling on the possibility, elaborating the fantasy, formulating a plan, rehearsing the conversations and plan, rationalizing the “rightness” of the affair, and finally acting on all the above.

Here are some clear signs you are on the slippery slope to an affair.

Talking to the other person more than your spouse about personal intimate issues.

Complaining about your spouse especially deficiencies in attention, affection, or sexually.

Sharing every fight or disagreement between you and your spouse with the other person.

Deeper emotional sharing usually develops an emotional affair. Feelings of closeness, being understood, respected, not judged, accepted “for who I am”, a euphoric sense of unconditional love are believed to flow from the other person. Often a comparison to the spouse evolves and gradually an idealized belief develops that the other person loves me more than my spouse does.

Since humans tend to want to make love when they feel love, sexual fantasy often parallels the emotional affair. The slope becomes more slippery and steeper.

Sharing sexual fantasies, dreams or thoughts is especially dangerous when shared about the other person.

Buying sexually suggestive cards or gifts for the other person.

Crossing the physical line with a kiss or sexual touch heightens extreme vulnerability to an affair.

Verbalizing the possibility of an affair to the other person.

Planning the first meeting. Rehearsing, over and over, what to say, what it will be like.

The sexual fantasies are often accompanied by the freedom fantasy.

The freedom fantasy is obsessional thinking about being single, or that your spouse suddenly wants a divorce, or your spouse is killed in an accident or just disappears leaving you free to pursue the affair.

Developing an Adult – Adult Relationship with Your Parent

Developing an adult-adult relationship with your parent requires the ability to say “NO” without anger, without guilt and with love.

Without Anger: Often the adult child falls into the pattern of saying compliant “yeses” to parental requests and demands until a boil over point and the “no” is said in anger. This leads to guilt and continuing the compliant pattern until the next blow-up. A spouse or friend may urge the adult child to stand up to the parent, but with the same result. We have to be independent enough from our parent to say the adult – adult “NO” without anger. It is the “no” we would use with a friend if we did not want to do something. Friends accept a “no” without it being seen as rebellion or defiance. If the parent sees the “no” as rebellious they may be struggling with allowing their adult child to grow-up.

Without Guilt: The late Erma Bombeck was fond of saying, “Guilt is the gift that keeps on giving.” Compliant, pleaser personalities have difficulty with anyone being upset with them especially a parent. Even if they can utter an occasional meek “no” they feel guilty and often act in overly compliant ways toward the parent as a guilt offering for being a bad child. Adult – adult relating does not operate with guilt manipulation. It operates with respect that each is dealing with an equal. It is based on honest, open communication which allows for disagreement without either person feeling less loved or cherished.

With Love: You can tolerate a lot of difference between you and your parent if each of you knows you are loved. You can love each other even if you do not agree. It is a tragedy of our culture that families our alienated and cutoff from each other over what is seen as irreconcilable differences. Healthy adult – adult relating requires an abiding love for each other. A mutual recognition by both parent and child that the child is now an adult represents the fundamental shift in the relationship to adult – adult status.
