It could get worse, and it very well may.
My wife discovered last night that I've been having an affair. As you'd expect, she exploded. And kept exploding. Make a volcano seem minor by comparison. But if she finds out who it's with, and how long it's been going on, it will get MUCH worse. I've been involved with her niece (her sister's daughter), and it's been going since the Christmas holidays last year, and the girl is now six months pregnant. See what I mean? Think, "Pompeii".
