I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.

Emma Waverman wrote a post asking, “Would you stick around after an affair?” I’ve asked the question here before, and I think it’s a good one to think about. I know some people who have stuck together after an affair and worked through it, and I know yet others who have walked away and I can’t say that I blame them. Having kids makes it a little more complicated, at least for me, but I’m hoping I never have to make that decision.
One interesting part of Emma’s article was the question as to whether one night stands are different than a prolonged affair with someone you and your spouse both know (ala Ahnold). To find out that someone you know, or work with, or who works for you, or see on the school ground is the person your spouse has been cheating on you with makes it more awkward, for sure. Any type of affair would be devastating and humiliating, for sure, but I think that if it was someone you know it would be that much worse.
How about you? Would you stick around after an affair? Do you think there are different “levels” of affairs?
