AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Affair Recovery LLC, a leader in offering personalized support for those healing after infidelity, today released new survey results in the wake of recent data dump of the hacked discrete affair website finds that 61 percent of betrayed spouses experienced more social shame than their unfaithful partner. Additionally, the majority of unfaithful spouses agreed with this sentiment, with 70 percent of respondents conceding betrayed spouses feel the most social shame.
The survey of over 2,000 respondents also revealed that 84% of betrayed spouses reported their honor could be restored by their mate committing to and participating in long term recovery work. A majority of couples who completed AffairRecovery.com’s courses as part of recovery ultimately ended up happier, with 72% being happily married one year later.
“In the wake of the recent infidelity data breach, we’re concerned about the devastation affected couples will experience,” said founder of AffairRecovery.com, Rick Reynolds, LCSW. “Unfortunately this event sheds light on the role that technology plays in promoting anonymous transgressions. Recent data from our participants revealed the long-term effect on the betrayed spouse is even more detrimental than we originally envisioned. Providing these couples with proper resources and tools to give them an opportunity to heal is essential. It would be tragic for families if they knew of no other option but divorce.”
