I've tried to believe this, but need more convincing. It's said that the best "revenge" once the affair is over is to go on to have a happy vibrant marriage. That is what would get back at the person who had the affair with your spouse the most. My problem is this: Isn't it easier for them to look at the person they gave up and say, "Well, at least I won't have to live life with someone who would cheat on me!" I would find it much easier to write off someone I was "in love" with if I knew they were capable of cheating on their beautiful family. Besides, in my case, I'm fairly certain my husband's OW's life hasn't changed any. My husband was just another notch in her bedpost. She may even have some "sweet" memories to hold onto, but in the end she could go find herself a great guy who won't do the same thing to her. How do we respect our spouses enough to get beyond this? And how do I feel better knowing that I'm left to live with the cheater and she is free to move on?
