This may be a power packed question, but in addition to struggling with my husband's infidelity, I have a hard time with his parents not really understanding how to interact with me. I see them quite often, and I think it would be helpful, if someone with your experience might be able to speak about what an affair does to a marriage. They love their son and for that I am grateful. However, there doesn't seem much out there about how to show tough love to your unfaithful child and how to be empathetic with his/her spouse who is hurting yet fighting desperately to have a recovered and thriving marriage. Thank you for any words of wisdom you might share.
