A woman was suggested by a marriage counsellor to have an extramarital affair to mend her relationship with her estranged husband.
The depressed woman said she heeded to the advice of the "expert" in Harbin, Heilongjiang province, reports The China Daily.
The middle-aged revealed she went on to have an affair with a younger man which had left her with a heavier heart than before.
She said: "The guilt is eating me from inside."
The lady added that she was no longer taking the consultant's suggestion.
