More married women are cheating on their husbands because adultery is encouraged by society. It's odd, but people do not "see" that society is one big temptation for both wives and husbands.

How to survive the affair is a question that has no standard answer; couples need to find their own paths to re-instill the love and trust back into the relationship. More and more couples are choosing to heal and rebuild their marriage rather than file for divorce.
