According to definition, infidelity is a marital disloyalty, adultery or unfaithfulness. Let’s admit the fact that one of the most hurting experiences in this world is to be betrayed by a husband, boyfriend, wife or girlfriend by looking for another partner which can satisfy their desires. So, let’s get into the real issue. When someone engages in infidelity, what is the next thing that happens? Of course, it can lead to many pathways but in order for your life to keep going, you must still choose the way that leads to surviving infidelity.
If you really love your partner even though he has committed infidelity, then you can do several ways on how to survive. Of course, the first step in order for you to survive is to talk about the root cause of committing infidelity. No matter what, your communication with your partner must be clear and healthy because this can pave the way for you to settle all things out. If your communication just ended out to be verbal wrangling, then there is a low chance for you to survive and to save your relationship as well.
Now, what if there had been reconciliation? Of course, you must decide to start once again by deciding to stay together in order for you to both work through feelings of remorse, betrayal and anger as well. By doing this, you are giving your kids a chance to have a better life by having a complete family and also move to surviving infidelity. Of course, the first few days, weeks and months will not be that easy. But if the infidel partner shows his or her repentance and willingness to save the relationship, there will be a spark of love that can light up your home once again.
See? The only key in surviving infidelity is not revenge, going to another country to escape, finding another partner, or anything else. The survival lies in forgiveness, reconciliation and of course, willingness of both parties to restore the relationship.
Another thing that can make you survive the relationship is by attending marital counselling together. By doing this, you and your partner will be able to communicate in an environment where you can let your feelings go out freely. There are also trained professionals who can provide the couple with objective, open and honest feedback concerning the progress of their relationship.
There are many ways on how both the couple can be on their way to surviving infidelity. Forgiveness is the key for the relationship to be sweeter at the second time around.
