Infidelity: A Violation Of Trust And A Crisis Of Identity

It's never been easier to cheat and its never been more difficult to keep a secret. Infidelity is wrong. However, it's something that will happen to most people at some point in their life.

Heather is married with two kids. Her husband Nick just left for a business trip. Heather is playing on his iPad with the two boys when a message appears on the screen. "Can't wait to see you." Strange she thinks, we just saw each other.  And then another message. "Can't wait to hold you in my arms." Then, Heather realizes these are not for her. Her father had numerous affairs when she was young. One day, her mother came across lipstick on the collar of his shirt. Heather begins digging through his iPad and finds hundreds of messages and photos exchanged. The vivid details of Nick's two year affair unfold in front of her in real time.

Affairs in the digital age are worsening. Cheating has never been easier thanks to apps and devices. There's no right or wrong way to respond when someone cheats on you. It's a painful, deeply personal experience.

Have you ever been affected by infidelity? If so, what course of action did you take to get beyond the affair?
