Help support your MeetupChip in
BAN (Beyond Affairs Network) is an international organization of local support groups for those who are dealing with the devastating impact of a spouse’s affair/infidelity. Local BAN groups allow betrayed men and women to come together for strength, insight, and mutual support.
What is Fort Collins BAN? • Fort Collins BAN holds face-to-face meetings for betrayed spouses only. BAN has found that face-to-face meetings can provide a much needed personal dynamic--very different from online-only forums. • BAN is not for those who’ve had affairs themselves. • BAN is open to both those who choose to heal their marriages and those who choose, or are forced into, divorce. • BAN is open to people of all religious beliefs or none. • BAN is free to attend. • BAN meetings are not intended to act as a substitute for counseling or other professional help.
At BAN, your privacy is of utmost importance. Meeting places are private to group members. If you wish, you can set up a Meetup account using only your first name. And if you prefer to not join the Meetup, but want more information or are interested in attending meetings, please email the coordinator directly at FortCollinsBAN@gmail.com.

Many people are apprehensive about attending a meeting of this nature. Please know that being nervous about attending for the first time is a very common. But you will very quickly find peace at the meeting of people who share similar emotions as you and really 'get it.' We regret that you are in the position to search out a group like this, but so glad you have found us.
Another fear some people have is the potential of seeing someone they know at a meeting. From experience of BAN meetings all over the world, this is extremely rare. And if it does occur, there actually tends to be relief because both people realize that they're in the same situation and going through the same thing. And again, everything at BAN meetings is confidential and kept private amongst those attending.
You can get beyond the pain! Fort Collins BAN is here to help.
Counselors/Therapists/Members of the Media. While counselors and members of the media are not allowed to attend BAN meetings in a professional capacity, we welcome you if you've been betrayed by a spouse. We also welcome your contact for professional reasons at FortCollinsBAN@gmail.com.
