I am a newly betrayed, having been told by my wife that she's been seeing another man for the past several months. She told me this 6 days ago. I have read several articles on this website. Thank you, I'm learning so much and it has kept me sane during this incredibly painful time. One of the articles spoke to the roles of serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine in keeping the unfaithful in the relationship with the affair partner. So, I know that she's "high" and "addicted" to this person right now, and I'm not desirable at all. Given that, isn't she, or any other newly unfaithful, more likely to leave their marriage and be less interested in progressing to any recovery, since they think they are happy with the affair partner?
