The author does spend several chapters on helping couples who want to work on their marriage after betrayal. I believe such repair is rare, and someone who is willing to cheat on their spouse once will do it again. If you were to try to repair the marriage, this book can be instructive, but I would urge caution. If your spouse does not share core values of fidelity and trust, find someone who does.
No. To truly 'forgive and forget', we must first begin the process of systematically UNDOING all the damage that the irresponsible 'other' has wrought upon our lives. And THAT is exactly where this book comes in.
The first victim of the betrayer is the self-esteem and personal identity of the betrayed. Self-doubt, self-recrimination, rage, derangement, confusion, a loss of all meaning, personal landmarks and reference points--all of these evils are the hateful 'gift' that betrayers bestow upon their victims. Every day, people are driven to suicide and utter despair because they made the horrible mistake of investing all their love and trust in someone who ultimately decided to put their own selfish interests before those of anyone else. What this book does is it resources you with a very tangible plan for saving the most valuable thing you can recover from your failed relationship---YOU.
I think a very valid way to assess the true value of any nonfiction book is to look at how much one has to read of it before they feel they have gained anything of significant value. If that's the criteria, then this book is '5 Star' ten times over! There are many books out there about how to pick yourself up after loss. Very few of them deliver, or are even worth the read. This book is different. If you are suffering from betrayal, it lays out a clear path to healing and recovering your ability to love, trust, and experience joy again. Thank you, Steven!

He explains why intimate betrayal can be so damaging to every aspect of your psyche and how such trauma can hijack your life; how we can wallow for months or years in pain and grief, resentment and blame, embracing a victim mentality.
But thankfully Dr Stosny doesn't leave us in a pit of despair. He gives us all hope and a clear practical path to recovery and reclaiming self-worth and empowerment.
I have read countless relationship books however Dr Stosny's books, based on pioneering research and years of dedicated clinical work, stand out as the very best and most insightful and helpful guidance to becoming a better person so you can have the compassionate, loving relationships you long for.
I recommend this book with all my heart.
His other books include a program for abusers that has a better success rate.
