How to Survive an Affair – The Real Life Story of a Woman Who Cheated and Who Was Cheated On

Many women are living lives of secrecy and deception where infidelity, lust, lovers and lies are a part of their daily existence.


September 14, 2011— Author Michelle Scales has experience each side of the ‘temptation triangle’ – as a woman who was cheated on, as ‘the other woman’ and as someone who cheated on her husband – and now she is helping other women deal with infidelity.
“While society seems more and more accepting of affairs, particularly for men, rarely do we see a woman admitting their infidelity, but I know it is widespread,” said Ms Scales.
“And just because it seems to happen more often, doesn’t make it any easier for those involved,” she said.
“It takes strength and courage to survive the emotional rollercoaster and move on with life.”
Ms Scales reveals her own story of infidelity in her new book The Temptation Triangle which includes extracts from her diaries kept over more than ten years.
“I grew up in a strict Christian family where I dreamed of getting married and settling down,” she said.
“I could never have predicted that my life would end up becoming so complicated and painful.”
“I was a wife, whose husband cheated on me with another woman.”
“That marriage ended and I found myself involved with a married man and become the ‘other woman’ who cheated with someone else’s husband.”
“And then I met a lovely man and re-married and temptation knocked again.”
“I’ve been through it all and I’ve learned to say - never say never!”
Ms Scales encourages women who find themselves on any side of the temptation triangle to do the following:

  • Start writing – share your feelings with a journal
  • Talk to someone, anyone.  Get help if you need to
  • Challenge yourself every day to fulfil your dreams

“I want to help women find the support that allows them to hold their head high and not feel like they have to hide away in shame,” she said.  
The Temptation Triangle includes Affair Survival Tools from psychologist Dr Julie Ford that simulates a personal psychology session.
“It’s important to work on your relationship by defining each person’s expectations,” said Dr Ford.
“I see women in extra marital affairs every day in my practice – and infidelity is tearing lives apart,” she said.
“Women need to be more honest with themselves about what their needs are and then communicate this effectively with the men in their lives.”
