Review for STRAIGHT SPOUSE NETWORK INC, Mahwah, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Without the help and support I received from SSN, I would not have survived finding out that my husband of 21 yrs was having an affair with another married man. This group gave my support I needed to get my family through a very difficult time. Knowing I was not alone in this situation made all of the difference in the world.

Review for STRAIGHT SPOUSE NETWORK INC, Mahwah, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Straight Spouse Network saved my life. Four years ago, I found out that my husband of 21 years was having an affair--with another married man. We had three children between the ages of 8-20. It was a devastating time in my life, and without the support of this group, I don't know if I would have made it through. Members of the group supported me through email, phone calls and f2f meetings. I learned that I wasn't alone in this situation and saw how others have coped with the same problem and been able to move on with their lives.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that I am not alone in this struggle; I have learned from the experiences of others and have met some wonderful, caring people who have enriched my life.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

amazing people who understood what I was going through.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

promote awareness of the terrible cost of society's negative attitude toward homosexuals--gay men and women who marry because they feel they must conform to society's standards.

Ways to make it better...

there was a f2f group that met regularly in my area.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of awareness and funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

SSN literally saved my life. I was in so much pain after my husband and I separated, really didn't know if I was going to be able to go on living.
