When a woman has got over an affair, does it imply that she has got a divorce, or she forgave her cheated husband and they still live together? Which is the correct way to understand get over an affair? I wonder whether they have broken up or maintain the relationship.

    A woman found out her husband had been cheating on her, and she felt great sadness. Afterward, she took several years to get over an affair.

    Thanks for the explanation.

    It could mean she forgave him or that they parted and she found someone else: in the sentence as it stands there's no way of telling. It just suggests that she eventually put the whole experience behind her and moved on with her life.
