FOR THE DISCUSSION OF A PARTNER'S AFFAIR ONLY (BETRAYED PARTNER'S ONLY, PLEASE)
DISCOVERY RECOVERY CHAT ROOM
Betrayed partners are welcome discuss their efforts to recover from a partner's affair. This chatroom is accessible from the home page or from the DISCOVERY RECOVERY FORUM and FURTHER RECOVERY FORUM (see below).
DISCOVERY RECOVERY FORUM
Betrayed partners discuss their experiences with the initial devastation and trauma following the discovery of a partner's affair. Subjects such as survival skills, coping with pain and anger, staying healthy and sane are common.
FURTHER RECOVERY FORUM
Betrayed partners who are beyond the initial devastation of discovery discuss long term issues involved in healing from a partners affair. Betrayed partners who find themselves growing uncomfortable with reminders of the initial trauma of discovery are especially welcome.
FOR THE DISCUSSION OF EXPERIENCES OF ONE'S OWN AFFAIR OR WITH A PARTNER'S AFFAIR (BETRAYED PARTNERS AND FORMERLY WAYWARD PARTNERS WELCOME)
OPEN CHAT ROOM
Everyone is welcome to discuss any subject. The chat room currently is associated with the Open Forum. It is accessible from the home page (see links at upper left) and from the DIVORCE RECOVERY FORUM and OPEN FORUM (see below).
Both betrayed and formerly wayward partners discuss separation or divorce following an affair. Subjects such as the impact of separation on children, loneliness, and legal issues are common.
Betrayed and formerly wayward partners together discuss efforts to recover from the impact of an affair. Wayward partners are welcome to discuss an affair that has ended but posts about a current, ongoing affair are not accepted.
We suggest that betrayed partners be gentle with themselves and avoid reading or posting on the OPEN FORUM, at least initially. If a betrayed partner is upset, we urge her/him not to respond to a post by a formerly wayward partner. Wayward partners post infrequently. Please avoid discouraging them.
Both betrayed and formerly wayward partners describe their personal experiences with infidelity.
