What books do you recommend specifically for he WS? I've read Not Just Friends...twice and found it SO helpful. I'm currently reading After The Affair, on the recommendation of my IC...but struggling to really get in to it. What other books do you suggest?

Hi there - I am a fWW, but never tried R and ended up divorcing - so not the best source for books on healing the marriage after an affair. Still for my own understanding I read FIve Love Languages and it was very helpful and I would imagine would be even better applied to a relationship.

What I think will be very helpful for you though is this thread from the Wayward forum on helpful books for WSs started by Fallen:

How to Help Your Spouse Heal From Your Affair by Linda J. MacDonald

This is a new one. this is a "How to" book in the purest sense of the words. Brief, concise and very to the point. Barely a hundred pages and less than 15 bucks from Amazon with shipping. this is an excellent book that just gets right to the heart of the matter

Consider these two threads about this book:

If you are a religious person and are struggling with the guilt and shame, I found Getting Past Guilt by Joe Beam to be helpful.
