Whatever the cause for the affair, it takes a toll on the people involved and the relationship. Infidelity destroys the foundations on which at least one partner in the relationship relied for stability and safety. It calls into question everything: who we think we are, what we think we have or were working towards, our ability to love, trust, and believe in our own judgment.
