How can I forgive my cheating husband? Four books that could help | The Sunday Times Magazine
July 31, 2022
Q. Last year I discovered my husband was having an affair. When I confronted him he immediately ended it and he says he is full of regret. We have been working through the reasons for the affair and I have decided to try to forgive him. I still love him and as our children are in their early teens, I don’t want to put them through a sticky divorce. Can you recommend any books on the subject of forgiveness that might help me get over what he has done?
A. It’s a great topic for literature but definitely not a pleasurable or enriching one to live through. You have my full admiration for attempting to rise above the loop of recriminations to forgive and forget.
