An oft-repeated recommendation to anyone who’s been affected by infidelity is to get counseling.
And for many couples, counseling can be a sound resource to help them decide whether or not to reconcile or end the relationship.
But for many couples, counseling isn’t an option.
In some cases, it would present a financial hardship, adding more stress to an already stressful situation. In other cases, feelings of shame or humiliation may prevent a couple from wanting to discuss their problems with someone else.
