Betrayal at any age and any time is traumatic and wrought with pain.  However, for betrayed partners over 50 years old, healing from betrayal presents unique challenges and often partners don’t have the support, validation, and resources they need to help them heal themselves.

After being married for many years, partners often look forward to the “retirement years.”  However after the discovery of betrayal, sharing this later stage of life with a partner who traumatized them can quickly become confusing and uncertain. 

After betrayal, these partners often feel scared and confused about their future; what they once looked forward to with joy and anticipation becomes something they dread with fear and despair.
