Few events are more painful than dealing with the discovery of a cheating spouse.
At the end of the day, the emotional bond we share with another individual is the most important thing we have. And unfortunately, infidelity can destroy all of the benefits of being close to someone else. Infidelity destroys trust, love, comfort and security.
The shock of catching a cheating spouse can be devastating. Everything which was once safe and familiar is suddenly fraught with uncertainty.
Infidelity is such a painful experience because the person who is supposed to provide unconditional, emotional support turns out to be the person who has hurt you the most.
Moreover, there is often stigma attached to being the victim of infidelity. People who have been cheated on typically feel shame, even though they have done nothing wrong.
When infidelity strikes, it can be difficult to know where to turn for help. And while there is a lot of useful information on the web designed to help people deal with the problem of infidelity, this information can be difficult to find, especially in a time of crisis.
There are literally millions of websites dealing with the subject of cheating and infidelity. Unfortunately, some of the websites which are the easiest to find also tend to be the least useful. With this in mind, I have tried to compile a handful of sites all designed to help people cope with the discovery of infidelity.
