Everyone is talking about the Ashley Madison Hack and the global fall out. The company marketed itself as the premier dating site for married people, and promised complete confidentiality for its 32 million users, but now the names and other information of those 32 million users have been made public for all to see. Many celebrities, government personnel, and everyday people have been caught up in its web.
But what are the innocent spouses – the non-cheating spouses – supposed to do when faced with such a life-altering cataclysm? If they are smart, they will take immediate steps to protect their personal interests, insulate their children to the extent possible, and start to rebuild their marriages or their lives.
Jodi Topitz, founder of we2me® – Divorce Décor and Theresa A. Lyons, a social worker and certified matrimonial lawyer at Lyons & Associates, PC offer advice on the following topics, tune in to find out what to do:
- Determine the Level of Cheating – Was it a single drunken “one night stand” as opposed to a long-term relationship, or multiple “one night stands” with many different people. It also is important to know the level of your spouse’s infidelity because that can give insight as to whether and what types of physical risks (STD’s and the like).
- Assess Whether Your Marriage Can Be Saved –. After cheating, the question is not whether your marriage will be the same – it will never be the same. Instead, the question is whether a new marriage can be forged in which both parties can enjoy enough satisfaction to keep the marriage going.
- Shield Your Children from the Conflict –It is not your children’s fault that one spouse has decided to stray. Kids need and deserve stability. And while it usually is not a good idea to lie to your children (especially older children who can more easily ferret out the truth), it usually is a good idea to keep children as protected as possible from parental conflict.
- Have a Solid Plan B – Just in case your marriage can’t be saved, it is important that you get your ducks in a row regarding finances, children, support systems, and personal property. Being blindsided and finding out that your spouse has had an affair is bad enough. To get blindsided during the divorce process would be a double whammy.
- How to Restore a Sense of Permanency for your Kid’s – If divorce is the only choice, and parents will be sharing custody, it is important to make your kid’s feel at home in both parental homes.
- Home Staging- If it is necessary to sell the marital home, is it best to Home Stage or put no effort into the curb appeal of the house
