From Marital Infidelity to a Happy Solution

Building a bridge from blocks - From Marital Infidelity to a Happy Solution

If you have ever dealt with infidelity in your relationship, you know that approaching a cheating wife or cheating husband and trying to get to the heart of the matter is never easy. The question of “What led to this?” is faced by many men and women. The feelings of violation and mistrust make the situation seem hopeless. Yet somewhere between feeling hurt and angry, there is a hope that somehow you will be able to get through this and resolve your marriage problems.

Confronting the “What led to this?” question can be the most difficult part of the equation. It is an important step, however, to getting down to the root of the issue at hand. Although you may feel betrayed and violated, losing control of your emotions and angrily confronting and accusing your spouse can potentially create more obstacles to overcome than you already have before you. Remember that the less judgmental you are, the more likely your spouse will be to open up.

Often, we become too hurt and angry to think clearly enough to consider the other person’s point of view in the situation. By no means does this justify infidelity, but it can help both of you better understand what is happening in your relationship. By discussing what led up to this, you are opening an honest line of communication to help identify and address what contributed to your spouse’s infidelity. This may be difficult, especially during a marriage crisis, but identifying the marriage issues are the first step to making changes that can help save your marriage.

Infidelity issues are some of the toughest to tackle, but remember that it is worth it to work things out between you and your spouse. A marriage crisis workshop such as A New Beginning can put you on the right path to resolving marriage conflict and saving a marriage.
