One of the most important components of healing and recovering from an affair is partnership. Two people being willing to have conversations about their past, present and future.
During the process of healing and recovering after an affair you will find yourself seeking answers to questions. It is that during this process couples should find time to communicate. To find answers to the questions that support the process of healing. As you continue to read, I am going to share questions that help couples heal. Questions that work to bring two people together.
Below are a set of questions that should be practiced often in order to support and aid the process of healing. If the answer is YES or NO, find out why. Always work to go deeper into the question in order to have a plan that connects you to your partner.
