When a man commits adultery, sometimes the wife considers that he, having broken the vows gives her carte blanche, by this I mean, she can do what she wants.
Some have ‘dates’ and ‘boyfriends’ but don’t get intimate. Some do get intimate.
The point is, after one can examine the situation, is to regain whatever confidence was lost.
In some cases, casual dates are enough to boost her ego and she never crosses the line. In other cases, she does. She needs to feel desired and wanted.
It is very important that the woman regains her sense of self, for adultery can be so devastating one might not recover.
