Historically, if there was a marriage with an unfaithful partner it was the man who had been unfaithful… not always, but often. Today, things are changing. We are seeing more women involved in unfaithful relationships than before. Why is that?
Well, there are several reasons. First, more women are in the workplace and are in positions of authority which means they travel more and are more closely involved with their male counterpart. Second, the stigma of a woman in an extramarital affair is lessening, and third, women now are often bread winners, which mean there is less financial risk if the relationship comes to light. Regardless of the reason, there are more women in affair relationships than previously.
So how can we treat the affair involving the women? Well, many of the same procedures that work for men also work for helping women caught in an affair. Marriage counseling is certainly at the top of the list, but I have many other approaches that I use with my female clients. I’ve worked with many women is this situation and I can assure you, there is hope and there can be a bright future. If you find yourself in this type of situation, please call and get professional help. It can be a life saver and a marriage saver.
