In "After the Affair" Dr. Spring covers the causes of affairs, rebuilding trust and love, why to try again when you don't feel like it, and how to achieve forgiveness and move on.
"We enter intimate relationships blindly, often effortlessly, swept up with passion and an idealized perception of our partner, often [Bleep!] about our ability to keep things hot. Most of us are totally unprepared for what lies ahead, and ignorant of what's required to last the course…The affair shocks us into reality. Fortunately, it also invites us to try again."
