Publisher's Summary

You are a good man who made a bad decision. You were unfaithful in your marriage.

You love your wife, and now that you see clearly what your infidelity has done to her, you are incredibly sorry you have hurt her so much. 

You want to save your marriage. You don't want to lose your family. I know you are doing your best to regain your wife's trust, but no matter what you do, you seem to make it worse. She has so many questions about your affair. So. Many. Questions.

Not only is your wife furious, but she's also emotionally volatile. Sometimes, she seems to love you more deeply than ever, and other times, she kicks you out of the house. 

You are on a roller coaster. You want your marriage back, but you're not sure how to help your wife trust you again and move forward. She doesn't know what she wants, and her volatility exhausts and upsets you. You both are stuck.

My name is Dr. Caroline Madden. I've been a licensed marriage and family therapist in Los Angeles for more than a decade. I have helped countless couples restore their marriages after infidelity. 

I've seen women just like your wife go through the whole process - from uncovering their husbands' affair to making it to the other side, heart healed and marriage restored. I have heard their innermost thoughts and concerns as they try to process their husbands' betrayal. I know what specific stages your wife will experience. I know what prevents women from moving forward, and I know what women need in order to trust and forgive. 

Most importantly, I know the things men say and do that they think are helpful but actually make things worse. 

This audiobook is a practical action plan that will walk you through the first stages after your wife has discovered your infidelity. Learn the tools to fix your marriage. Avoid the (sometimes fatal) mistakes I've seen so many men make. 

In this audiobook, you'll learn the things your wife is going to feel, say, and do, giving you the following:

  • Insight into what she is thinking and why this is so hard for her to get over
  • Practical advice so you know exactly what to do at this important stage
  • Actual scripts so you know what to say in response to very specific situations
  • Clear explanations as to why certain words and actions you think will be helpful might be making this worse
  • Two self-administered quizzes to help you determine why you cheated so you can get a better understanding of what triggered your affair.  

Included at the appropriate points are scripts of what to say and why you need to say those words at that time.

This is the most important time for you to get things right, because your wife is actively deciding at this stage whether or not she wants to stay with you. Buy After a Good Man Cheats today.

excellent

I suggest every man read this book if they have cheated emotionally or physically. whether your spouse knows about it or not. The advice given is to the point. It's not a book that will bash your actions but tells you how to start to repair your relationship . If you want to repair your relationship then this is a must.

Horrible, but with some helpful information

The terrible part of this book is that it teaches you to be extremely cruel to your affair partner. To me, this cannot be the foundation for being “a good man”. That you have made your wife suffer does not justify being mean to another woman who possibly loves you too. Two wrongs do not make one right. Only read this book if you supplement with other more compassionate books such as “The State of Affairs” by Esther Perel. Also be cautious about becoming a total doormat for your wife. Women want honesty and love, but they also want a man who is strong enough to protect them and will not be pushed around. Read about attracting women if you don’t get this. The good part of this book is that it helps you understand the emotional magnitude of an affair as your wife might experience it.

Empathy

I feel empathy regarding infidelity. I have my own personal views but am flexible in weighing the good vs the bad. Rebuilding trust and intimacy can take YEARS even if the infidelity has been forgiven.

Helpful and well delivered

The book was written by a real person with normal language. The reader was very good and by the end felt like a close friend I was hearing from.

Explained feeling but traditional point of view

Although it is very very good explained what an affair does emotionally to a person and most of the advices are really good and work but the book is clearly oriented for heterosexual men and top of that religious with very traditional relationships.
