Healing Your Relationship after Infidelity

love-rings

No other marital problem may create heartache and devastation as much as infidelity. Oftentimes it causes relationships to fail, marriages to end, and brings traumatic miseries to the entire family. If infidelity has been discovered in your marriage, don’t feel alone. Over 70 to 80 percent of married couples struggle with an infidelity issues at some time in their marriage. But, there’s still hope. The American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy shares this information on a positive note: the majority of marriages do survive the infidelity crisis.

The Curse of Infidelity

Infidelity is not characteristically the same situation for all couples. What may be acceptable for some may be loathsome for others. The level of tolerance varies among and between partners in a relationship. If you’re the oppressed party, you may be in shock, wondering if it’s even true and if your partner is actually in love with the other person. Maybe you’re wondering if you should leave temporarily or permanently. If you stay, can trust be restored and can the relationship actually survive?

If you happen to be the one who has broken the trust, the feelings of shame, guilt, frustration, hopelessness and helplessness can overwhelm you. You’re confused whether or not to stay and try to make the relationship work anew. How can you hurt your spouse whom you thought you loved so much? Do you feel all is lost? Are you about to give up?

Courage above Pain

Due to the negative range of emotions associated with infidelity, it can be difficult for you or the two of you as a couple, to get any form of support from family and friends. This is an issue that couples find extremely strenuous and uncomfortable to discuss with a third party. But, if you respect your partner and value your marriage, you must be willing to see beyond your pain and take logical steps to rebuild the relationship.

Nothing compares to the pain wrought by infidelity. It takes inner peace to become strong, repentant, or forgiving. Yet without help, your chances of managing and recovering from the crisis may be decreased. Where infidelity is the issue, the help you need may come from specifically-trained professionals to achieve healing for both of you.
