Can you rebuild trust after a marriage is shattered by infidelity?

Get the truth about adultery recovery from a couple who’s been there. 

Your browser may not support display of this image. Dallas/Ft. Worth, TXStatistics show that one in every four marriages is impacted by infidelity.  If you haven’t experienced the searing pain of unfaithfulness, odds are you know someone who has. The affects of infidelity are devastating and have destroyed many families, but adultery doesn’t have to be an automatic death sentence for your marriage. You can trust again. You can restore intimacy. You can have a relationship that you will both cherish for a lifetime. 

Fifteen years ago, Gary and Mona Shriver experienced the devastation caused by adultery. After saving their relationship, the Shrivers wrote Unfaithful (David C Cook, November 2009), the true story of how God restored their unraveling marriage. Raw and transparently honest, the Shrivers’ story alone is an inspiration, offering hope and practical strategies for healing. In this revised version, the authors add new information on emotional affairs and share real life stories of betrayal and complete healing.   

As co-founders of Hope and Healing Ministries, a Christian peer support ministry for couples in adultery recovery, the Shrivers have seen countless broken marriages restored and transformed into intimate relationships built on love, respect, and trust. Unfaithful is a lifeline for couples with no hope in sight. It is also a useful resource for ministers, counselors, as well as friends and family of couples struggling to recover after a spouse has strayed.  

With updated content and new discussion questions, Unfaithful is an ideal resource for small group studies or support groups. This revised version also offers a recovery timeline from a couples’ perspective, a helpful addition for couples wondering what the healing process will look like.

 

“We can now say with absolute sincerity that we have fully healed from the adultery,” the Shrivers share. “Our marriage is strong and mutually satisfying. We have love and trust. And we can only encourage you with the fact that it is worth the journey.”

After going through therapy to save their marriage from a devastating affair, Gary and Mona Shriver searched in vain for another couple who could offer them tangible hope that they could heal. Responding to this need in their community, the Shrivers cofounded Hope & Healing Ministries, Inc., an adultery recovery peer support ministry. They are members of the Association of Marriage and Family Ministries (AMFM) and participants of the AMFM ministry team for Reconciling Troubled Marriages. The Shrivers are also members of the Stanislaus County Healthy Marriage Coalition in California. They have shared their story of hope many times on The 700 Club, Focus on the Family, and RBC’s Words to Live By. Gary, who owns an audio and video production facility, and Mona, a former nurse active in women’s ministries, have been married thirty-three years and have three grown sons. They reside in Turlock, California. 

Suggested Interview Questions:

1.  The two of you have experienced firsthand the pain of infidelity and the eventual restoration of trust in your marriage. Will you share your story with us?

2.  How do couples rebuild trust after infidelity? What factors hinder this process? Why is it so important to rebuild trust in the first place?

3.  What is an emotional affair? How can you know when it’s happened? Why is ending an emotional affair sometimes more complicated than ending a physical affair?

4.  What is real forgiveness? How can a couple devastated by adultery practice this real forgiveness?

5.  The temptation for many couples recovering from adultery is to return as quickly as possible to the way things were—whether good or bad. Why is it so important not to do this?
