What we're about
Extramarital affairs can impact on many lives, yet the person reeling from the knowledge of a spouse’s affair often feels very alone. The non-profit voluntary group, Beyond Affairs Network (BAN), provides a way for people dealing with a partner’s affair to meet for mutual support. Friends and family may not be told for some time or never of an affair, especially if there is no marital break-up. Yet there is a sense that if something is too awful to talk about, it must also be too awful to get over. BAN participants meet to share helpful resources and personal experiences. Meetings are open to all whose spouse had an affair, whether or not the marriage survived. Participants are guaranteed anonymity. The support group’s email address is FairfaxBAN@gmail.com.
