Just the same, maybe you could still work on your connection and try to put the affair stuff aside in your mind so you could build new trust by building on the good things you share. Maybe she might see so much worth staying for she'll wanna stay.

Someone once wrote, ‘Emotions are temporary states of mind, don’t let them permanently destroy you.’
“A reporter asked the couple, ‘How did you manage to stay together for 65 years?’ The woman replied, ‘We were born in a time when if something was broken we would fix it, not throw it away…
“A strong relationship requires choosing to love each other even in those moments when you struggle to like each other.” Have you and your wife had the opportunity to listen to each other. Sometimes I hear my wife but I am not listening. It may be a good idea to find out what her needs are and where you can do better. When my wife and I talk, I stop what I’m doing and look her right in the eyes. I do this so that I know and she knows that she has my complete undivided attention and it also show that what what she is saying is important. Your marriage is worth saving, studies suggest that families involved in divorce are worse off in many ways. And any unsettled issues may be carried on in future relationships. It may be difficult to do, but working the problems and finding solutions will be the most rewarding job you will have. Having a better relationship- that begins with good communication- and that starts with good listening. Someone once asked ‘Do you see a hopeless end or do you see an endless hope.’
