    Infidelity is one of the most traumatic experiences that can affect your relationship. The trust lost after a partner cheats causes a crack in the marriage bond that is difficult to repair. Even if you want to resume the relationship, the betrayal and lack of faith you feel after unfaithfulness has occurred may make it feel like an impossible goal. But, by tackling the aftermath of infidelity together, couples stand a higher chance of recovering their relationship. It isn’t going to be easy, but it is entirely possible. Here is how you can come together to heal after finding out your partner has been unfaithful.

    Get tested
    It is important for you to continue taking care of yourself during this traumatic time. This means eating regularly, getting enough water, and maintaining happiness through a social life. However, there is an even bigger health issue you must take care of. If you are tackling the aftermath of infidelity together, one of the first steps before reconciling is for you both to get tested for STD’s. Even if your partner used protection, there is still a chance that they may have contracted an infection or disease during their sexual misconduct.

    Apologize:
    The guilty party must apologize for wrongdoings as well as your reasons why you are sorry for what happened

    Couples counseling
    Married counseling can be incredibly helpful for couples who are tackling the aftermath of infidelity together. Never be afraid of reaching out for help to save your marriage.

    Identifying the problem
    You may believe that your partner was unfaithful simply because the opportunity presented itself, but the truth is affairs usually stem from a much larger issue in the marriage. Substance abuse, a drop-off in sexual activity within the marriage, past affairs, Childhood trauma, feeling unappreciated, and lack of love in the marriage may all be contributing factors to infidelity.

    Learning to forgive
    Forgiveness is hard to practice, but it is essential in tackling the aftermath of infidelity together. When someone had betrayed your trust it can be difficult to forgive them and allow them back into your life.
    In order to offer your mate sincere forgiveness, you should have received the following: assurance that the affair is over, a genuine apology from your mate’s heart, complete transparency about the affair and your mate’s whereabouts, and continued efforts by them to win your affection and trust.

    Rebuilding trust Rebuilding trust with your marriage mate is important especially when infidelity is involved. Get ready to exercise true patience and compassion during this phase, because it is a very hard chapter in your journey to reunite.
    Communicate regularly with your partner to find out what their wants and needs are so that you can better accommodate them during this trying time.

    Make your marriage your top priority
    You both need to focus your attention back on making your marriage your top priority; Above work, above your children, and above your social lives. Show appreciation and gratitude for your mate’s positive qualities, kiss daily, and communicate honestly with one another.

    Recommitting:
    Recommitting to your marriage involves remaining dedicated to your couples counseling and your marriage will be all romantic again
