    Love Must Be Tough is a great book that I wish I’d found early in my first marriage rather than after we were already separated. It’s useful for more than just affairs/sexual stuff. I found it had a lot that was useful for dealing with a husband with an addiction of any sort (in my exhusband’s case, it was a major drug addiction as well as peer pressure issues with his drug using friends).

    I highly recommend it. Even before things go wrong in a marriage, it’s a useful read for “just in case”

    Surviving an Affair was instrunental in my personal recovery after my husbands confession and in the healing of our marriage as we went through much of the book together as well.

    Another helpful book is “After the Affair” by Janis Abrahms Spring.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I don’t know anyone who needs them at the moment but I will remember this if it comes up.

    Just to let you know, there are a number of typos in the quote from ‘Surviving an Affair’.

    “Holding Onto Heaven While Your Husband Goes Through Hell” by Connie Neal is my favorite after the affair book for women

    I see you talk about men having an affair a lot but what about women? Do you recommend the same books when it’s the woman whose had the affair? My mom had/is having an affair (I confronted her). Just wondering if there is any books/advice I can pass on to her.

    Speaking from recent experience, I highly recommend ‘NOT “Just Friends”‘ by Shirley P. Glass. I had an affair many years ago and kept it a secret from my husband until last year. I felt convicted by the Lord and knew I had to confess to my husband and ask for his forgiveness (I confessed and am forgiven by Jesus). During many hours of marital therapy with a Christian counselor, we are slowly healing and building a stronger marriage the way God created it to be. This book helped us discuss what happened and understand what the other was going through and feeling. It is not a Christian-based book, but it is written by an author who supports the covenant of marriage.

    Thank you for sharing this resource. As the husband of wife who has two affairs this is most helpful. Although I can’t change her I can work on my issues. God bless you.
