I have a male friend who has been unfaithful to his partner. She found out by accident but wants to stay with him and make it work. ( I don't know her ). he hasn't told anyone else about this and they are going to attend counselling together. He also is genuinely sorry and wants to stay together.

I've seen quite a few books/ websites recommended on here both for the wronged party and the cheater but I can't remember any of them! I mentioned I'd seen stuff on here and he asked if I could find out what they were for him.

Can anyone let me know anything that has helped them?

And before anyone asks, this is not about me ( I know how suspicious these posts can sound! )smile
