An affair is when an individual in a marriage or committed relationship has sexual contact and/or inappropriate emotional attraction to someone else. In other words, an affair is a betrayal of an agreement you had with your partner.
Affairs don't have to be the end of a relationship, but will be if the partners involved don't take the time to understand, heal, and grow their relationship to a new level.
Dr. Terrell says:
"If both partners want to try to work through the crisis, it is very doable and likely that they will heal successfully, and even get to a deeper, more intimate level of relationship. If only one partner wants to work it out, I encourage both to not make a decision until they have worked to understand and grow to a place where they will make a good decision for themselves."
