Unfaithful: Rebuilding Trust After Infidelity
While in the midst of confusion and the personal anguish of infidelity in a marriage, there is something couples need to know—there is hope; marriages can heal; the authors of this book are living proof. More than ten years ago, Gary Shriver confessed to his wife, Mona, about a three-year affair, as well as a one-night stand. Though the impact of that confession was devastating, it wasn’t the end of their marriage. In their deepest despair, Gary and Mona wanted to know a real couple whose marriage had survived infidelity. They wanted desperately for someone—someone who had been in that situation—to say to them, “You can get through this and learn to trust again!” But they could find no couple willing to be that vulnerable. This is why the Shrivers have opened the pages of their lives and hearts to hurting couples everywhere. In Unfaithful: Rebuilding Trust After Infidelity, Gary and Mona each share, from their own perspectives, the impact of adultery on their family, the strength they found in their faith, what it takes to endure, the importance of communication and forgiveness, and so much more. With the Shrivers’ help, couples can learn to move beyond crisis to a place where they can renew their hope, rebuild their trust, and ultimately, restore their marriages!
