Counselor and pastor Robert D. Jones shares wise and biblical next steps in the aftermath of infidelity.

How should you respond to the devastating disappointments that adultery and other forms of betrayal have brought into your marriage? It’s natural to feel a wide range of emotions, including anger, confusion, grief, sadness, jealousy, anxiety, embarrassment, and regret. The consequences of your spouse’s sin cast wide effects on your relationship, family, and future. Counselor Robert D. Jones has walked with many couples in your situation and provides ten steps for moving forward from this betrayal with God-given hope.

My Spouse Was Unfaithful provides biblical principles for handling this betrayal and confronting your spouse, and it offers a guide for working through a potential repentance and restoration process. While God doesn’t promise restoration with your spouse, he does promise to be with you and help you—whether your spouse chooses to repent or not. God can use this experience to draw you closer to him and bring greater good to your life.

  • Practical, accessible, spiritual guidance on how to move forward from your spouse’s betrayal with God-given hope. 
  • Part of the Ask the Christian Counselor series, walking readers through their deepest and most profound questions.  
  • Gives readers guidance in understanding their suffering and temptations so they can learn to lament and guard against bitterness, vengeance, and rash decisions.  
  • Compact format goes deeper than New Growth Press’s popular minibooks without overwhelming the reader.
