136 Blended Families And Affairs

Affairs are destructive to marriages, even more so to blended/fractured families. Affairs often re-trigger old hurts and impact old fault lines and cause affair trauma. Fractured/blended families are fragile. Affairs put the fragile family ‘under pressure.’ Blended families present unique challenges when it comes to surviving affairs.On one hand, they have resilience. They have already dealt with a loss. They also have less power than ‘natural’ family structures. Since they have a different composition than natural families, they have different options. The tolerance level is often lower, which means bailing/divorcing is more likely than in a first marriage. Which is why staying together after infidelity is challenging.
