Trusting your wife was meant to be a no-brainer but when she cheated, you realized you were wrong. Should you do it again?
People often think that marriages can work just fine as long as there’s enough love in them.
But, the truth is, love is just a part of it and those who solely rely on its power are doomed to fail.
That’s because they often forget the other foundations of a healthy and strong marriage, where trust is one of the most important pillars.
I mean, what’s the point of love if you do not trust each other, right? What’s the point of staying in a marriage where feelings of safety and security are missing?
The Effects Of Infidelity On A Relationship’s Trust
People who cheat often have their own stories and reasons for why they did it. But, the thing is, no matter the cause, its effect on the marriage is still the same – extremely damaging.
There’s insecurity, paranoia, anxiety, and all kinds of trust issues. Plus all the other negative emotions that you would possibly feel – devastation, loneliness, grief.
Well, it’s said that being cheated on can bring out the world’s worst feelings, and man is it true.
But Is it repairable? Yes, it is. But will it ever be the same? Maybe. It could take a lot of time and effort, but it’s definitely possible.
What You Can Do
If you still want to try to stay and fix things up, you should know that you’ll likely fail if you don’t do it properly.
That means you should actually confirm if the affair is over. So you must look for signs she’s still cheating and possibly catch her in the act.
There are many ways of doing this, but if you don’t know what to do or where to start, this article may be what you need.
The reason for that is the enormous damage and chaos infidelity brings to the table, which is something most people don’t know how to deal with.
So throw the discovery of another affair in the mix, and there you have it – life-long trust issues and infidelity trauma.
If you both actually commit to it, you might be able to pull it off and survive the infidelity, together.
However, keep in mind that it won’t be easy. It will take a lot of time and effort.
Dealing with any form of cheating is always hard, and trusting an unfaithful wife again is even harder. And it will always be an arduous task, due to the emotional baggage that comes with it.
The upside is that it’s doable.
However, it’ll take effort and commitment from both of you and possibly some professional help from a therapist to pull it off.
