Dr. Shane shares his views about infidelity, what it is, why it occurs, and most importantly what happens after an affair is revealed.  

Dr. Shane talks about the three stages the hurt partner will experience after an affair is revealed.  The three stages are:

1.  Atone - Involves the reactions (emotional, physical, neurological) that will occur after learning about the affair. 

2. Atune - The hurt partner reviews his or her options to stay or leave the relationship.  

3. Attach - The couple reconnects to start the process of rebuilding their relationship.

Dr. Shane states that the hurt partner is the only one who should make the decision to stay or leave the relationship and the worse thing the unfaithful partner can do is try to rush the decision-making and ask them to "get over it."
