“How will I manage it?” “When will I feel better?”
These are common questions I will hear in therapy from clients trying to recover from their partner’s relationship. Perhaps, like you, these clients want to be sure they will get rid of this tremendous pain in six months or a year.
There is no magic wand when it comes to healing from romance. And there is no guarantee that you will be able to do this. Some marriages get stronger after cheating, but sentimental work is just brutal. Any couple who do this will tell you. If you’re considering forgiveness, here are the essentials for your post-novel toolkit:
1. A sincere promise to end the second relationship.
It obviously is. If you discover an ongoing romance, you need to make sure that your partner is willing to completely do away with the other person – and that doesn’t imply any communication or friendship. Otherwise, why should you consider forgiveness? There is no chance of recovery if he doesn’t want to end the second relationship.
2. A sincere apology.
Without it, you won’t make much progress. If your partner hasn’t offered a sincere apology, you still need one. Ask. If she blames you or your marriage for romance, she doesn’t take responsibility and you don’t feel guilty about it.
3. Open book.
Your cheating partner has now lost their pre-novel privacy rights. To admit it, he has to engage in what I call “kitchen table politics”. This means that everything must now be available for viewing, including mobile phones, tablets and computers. If he doesn’t give you his passwords, your suspicions won’t cease. You need access, whether you are using it or not.
4. Ongoing efforts.
Does she still let you know how sorry she is? Does he admit the suffering he caused you? Does he ask you – without being summoned – to solve the problem? If it doesn’t, you will feel completely isolated in your grief and resent that you have a responsibility to resolve it. It takes two for the romance to recover. You need a supportive and open-minded partner to help you move forward.
5. Honest assessment of the report.
If romance is a symptom that something is wrong with marriage, well …i wrong in marriage? Even if you haven’t cheated on, ask yourself if the relationship met your needs and if it’s worth saving. Getting beyond an affair i going to take a lot of time, heartache and patience. Why bother going nuts over hi affair if the relationship has run its course?
Right now you may feel like you’ll be mierable forever. Make yourself solid and set time limits. Jeśli ieś prawie pewien, że chcesz pozostać w związku, daj sobie co najmniej rok, a następnie dokonaj ponownej oceny. Dicovering your partner has been unfaithful i nothing short of an emotional trauma. You wouldn’t expect to survive the death of someone you love in a few months. Treat your return after a relationship with the same respect and sensitivity.
7. Honestly evaluate your forgiveness.
Be honest with yourself. Are you really ever going to be able to move beyond thi? Not everyone can. Have you hitorically been able to forgive easily or at all? Czy ieś typem osoby, która żywi urazę? If so, you have a big deciion to make. You can stay or leave, but don’t stay married just to torture your partner for her relationship. Can you hate the act but forgive the actor?
8. Some knowledge about romance.
I warn clients who say they want all the details of their partner’s romance. How come? Because when you know these overwhelming delicacies, you can’t help but know them. Then, you have to carry that knowledge and viual for the rest of your days. So, you really don’t want to know they had sex in the janitor’s closet at the office, but you might want to know just how serious thi other relationship was. Was it a one-off quickie? Or was it a five-year romance? Knowing what the other relationship meant to your partner — and to your marital hitory — can go a long way in helping you figure out what you need to do.
9. Realitic expectations.
If you’re expecting to wake up one day and have all remnants of the affair be gone, you’re going to be diappointed. No matter how successful you are moving forward, romance has changed your relationship forever. Even couples who get over cheating still recognize that romance changes the rules of the game. You can forgive, but you will not forget. And that could be a good thing. It’s a reminder to both of you that your relationship i precious — and that neither one of you would ever do anything to recreate such a painful time.
Defining forgiveness i difficult at best, especially when it comes to forgiving something as tragic as infidelity. Instead of looking at it from the perspective of what it i I thought it might be useful to define what it i NOT. As you read through the lit below, keep in mind, forgiveness i a process. If you’ve not been able to maintain the perspective or standards described below, that’s OK. Don’t be too hard on yourself or expect too much of yourself. During recovery, we encourage individuals and couples to focus on good and strong progress, not perfection. Also, if you’re early on in the recovery process, please use these principles as guide posts to pursue as you may not be there yet, and that’s OK.
Forgiveness, or forgiving infidelity, i NOT based on the other person’s contrition, sorrow or repentance:
Untilreconciliation may be based on another’s contrition, sorrow or repentance, forgiveness i a gift you give yourself which sets you free from the hurtful actions of others. It has little to do with the other person because it’s an internal matter. It i an act that releases that person’s hold on you for the wrongs committed against you. If you choose not to forgive, you will be a victim forever. Forgiveness regains power and gives impetus to your healing.
Forgiveness does NOT mean reconciliation:
It i possible to forgive someone and release the resentment and bitterness you have toward them without reconciling. Untilforgiveness in marriage after infidelity i not based on the other person’s repentance, reconciliation IS most definitely based on their empathy, sorrow, repentance and their ability to be safe. If the person who wounded you does not take personal responsibility for what they’ve done, i not willing to make restitution, and won’t take steps to assure it doesn’t happen again, then reconciliation may not even be wie.
Forgiveness in marriage after betrayal i NOT forgetting:
It would be “Divine” if we were capable of forgetting, but I’m not sure it would be safe. Come esseri umani, perdoniamo, ma i ricordi di quello che i successo rimangono. Pretending that the crime never happened would detract from the gift of forgiveness. The intrusion of past offenses into our present day reality does not mean we haven’t forgiven. Rather, as humans we tend to forgive and remember. With forgiveness after infidelity there i no longer a need to punih or to extract payment from that person for their offenses against others or us. Forgiveness allows us to leave the wounds of our past behind and move forward, but we do so with lessons learned from our past.
Forgiveness after an affair i NOT condoning or making light of their behavior:
If you could justify what the other person did, you wouldn’t need to forgive. To forgive someone hi or her wrongs against you in no way minimizes the magnitude of the offense. The very fact that forgiving infidelity i necessary accentuates the reality that an injury occurred. If the party that hurt us does not see the gravity of the offense, we feel trivialized and unimportant.
Forgiveness i NOT ignoring what happened:
Too often, people want to ignore the injuries they’ve sustained to avoid looking at the damage. Pretending a crime that never took place places the seeds of bitterness in fertile ground. Not until we’ve explored the true and palatable cost can we forgive the debt that i incurred.
Forgiveness i NOT a one-time event, especially when it comes to forgiving infidelity:
Frequently people will think something’s wrong because they continue to struggle with the betrayal committed by their mate. Untilwe may choose to forgive, the consequences of those actions can continue to rock our lives. Whenever an additional consequence emerges, it must also be released. Ogni volta che capisci di più di quello che i successo, devi comunque affrontare il dolore di quella conseguenza, indipendentemente dal fatto che tu li abbia perdonati o meno per le loro azioni. Whenever an intrusive thought steals your peace of mind, it becomes another consequence that you must face and release. Shockwaves created by infidelity can roll over time for many years, although their amount and intensity will be learned through treatment. Any additional consequences must be released, otherwise resentment and bitterness may arise. Continuing forgiveness i key to healing after an affair.
Forgiveness does NOT mean permision to go and do the same thing over and over:
If someone were to view forgiveness as permision to repeat the same hurtful actions then that individual in’t safe for a relationship. It would be someone who takes no responsibility for his actions. Additionally, if a person’s motivation for not repeating an offense i based on your lack of forgiveness, you are put in the place of having to take personal responsibility for their behavior and safety in the relationship for the remainder of the relationship. It’s impossible for forgiveness to occur if the extramarital relationship hasn’t ended completely. If you were a merchant and the customer had a debt that you decided to cancel, it would not be possible to cancel that debt if the customer was still piling up debt despite your best efforts. It was impossible to say what it would take to write it.
I hope exploring what forgiveness i NOT, has helped to clarify questions you might have about both what forgiving infidelity i and how to forgive. Betrayal i something others do to you, but bitterness i something you do to yourself. For the sake of healing, I hope a better understanding of forgiveness gives you the opportunity for personal freedom. It’s important to remember however, that forgiveness i not the same as reconciliation and that it i a process that takes time. UntilI have a personal bias toward reconciliation I recognize it’s dependent on the actions and attitudes of both parties.
If you’re interested in exploring whether reconciliation i even possible, consider attending our in-person EMS Weekend. It will help you both better understand what it takes to get together and move forward as an individual or a couple, regardless of the state of your marriage. Before you make deciions that will mostly likely change you and your family’s hitory, please give some thought to finding clarity and peace in your story first.
Forgiveness i an invitation to a second chance at love

Forgiveness can be difficult, especially if your partner has broken the most solemn marriage vow. Surpriingly, infidelity i not necessarily fatal to a relationship. With proper communication, therapy, and a willingness to let go, many couples overcome this problem. As strange as it may sound, in some cases the healing process can actually strengthen the relationship.
Couples who survive thi tragedy do so when the offending person takes responsibility for hi or her actions and becomes open to dealing with their partner’s pain and anger. Most people can’t imagine living with someone who has betrayed them in thi way, but the truth i that with time and lots of hard work, the heartache can be healed. In order to make thi happen, the one who has been betrayed must accept that their partner made a huge mitake and allow them to repent.
Dopo che la relazione i finita, il non credente deve rendersi conto che il suo partner lo inonderà di domande e preoccupazioni per un po’, a cui devono rispondere in modo onesto e sensibile. It i part of the healing process and will also help the transgressor forgive himself or herself. Through thi process I have seen many couples actually grow, and though the affair cannot be forgotten, it can be forgiven.
Things happen because most couples enter into relationships unaware of how to cope with their feelings, both within and without commitment. Some people place far too little value on the depth of love and mitakenly think, “what they don’t know won’t hurt them.” The real truth i that an affair will take energy away from your primary relationship and your partner will feel that on some level.
Forgiveness i not about letting the other person off the hook; it i about letting ourselves off the hook. Thanks to forgiveness, our hearts no longer have to endure the torture of clinging to violations. Forgiveness, if properly earned, can be a healthy response to infidelity. It can also be seen as a reward to the injured party for surviving a breach of her trust.
However, forgiveness i not mandatory or necessary. In cases where the transgressor will not apologize or take responsibility for their actions, it i imperative that the one who has been betrayed must move on – even if that means breaking up the family and starting over. The logic here i that if the unfaithful partner cannot bring himself or herself to owning their guilt and get help to understand why they chose the hurtful action, they will repeat it.
Rebuilding the trust and intimacy that has been stolen by infidelity i never going to be easy, but it i doable. It starts with wanting to stay there and try it out. If thi has happened to your relationship you need to think before you react to your appropriately hurt feelings.

Remind yourself that it’s okay if you don’t know what to do or how to feel. There i a road back, and though it i far less traveled, it i an invitation to a second chance at love and life.
Editor’s Note: In 2002, Cindy Beall was a happily married wife to Chri, her husband of nine years. Chri had been on staff with a church in Oklahoma City for only six weeks when he made a confession that would change their lives forever: He had been unfaithful with multiple women over the course of two and a half years, and he was pretty sure one of those women was now pregnant with hi child. He also confessed to porn addiction.
Hi complete inability to control hi addiction had left Chri utterly broken, humbled, and repentant. After a few weeks and many prayers, Cindy felt that God was calling her to stay married. The following i an excerpt from her book,Uzdrowienie małżeństwa, gdy zaufanie i złamaneche racconta la storia di come Dio ha redento il loro matrimonio, rendendolo "migliore del nuovo".
Every week, I get emails from women asking a lot of questions about how to overcome infidelity in their marriage. Of all the questions I am asked, one of the most common i, “How did you learn to trust him again?”
E ogni volta do la stessa risposta: "Sto ancora imparando".
I wish I could find a perfect algebraic formula that shows exactly how to restore confidence. But that in’t going to happen—not because I barely squeezed out of algebra with a 71 percent, but because trust and forgiveness don’t exit in the land of numbers. They are born of God’s grace, mercy, and healing.
You don’t have to have endured infidelity in your marriage to lose trust. Trust can be broken in many different ways. Nadal iem na drodze do odzyskania zaufania do męża, ale nauczyłam się kilku rzeczy, które mam nadzieję, że okażą się pomocne.
1. Trust means taking a rik.
My husband works hard to regain my trust, but I am still struggling. I wih I could say otherwie, but I’d be lying.
Isn’t that the way it i with all of us? I’ve come to realize that we are all capable of doing things we never imagined we’d do. So trusting a person i a rik. We need to learn to trust people, but we also need to realize that people will let us down. It’s part of life. But if we fully trust in our Heavenly Father, we will never be disappointed.
There i a mental battle going on inside me as I strive to trust my husband more every day. I engage in thi battle on a regular basi, and it can be exhausting. But the more I do it and believe what God has shown me, the easier I do it.
I stand on the one thing that i trustworthy and never fails. Sto sulla Parola di Dio. Praie Him that Hi words are sharper than any double-edged sword (Hebrews 4:12). There i power in them, and when we claim them, believe in them, stand on them, and trust in them, we will be lifted up. We will find peace.
2. Replace anger with forgiveness.
We’ve all been wounded. Nie i mi obcy ból, który widzę w oczach tak wielu ludzi. We can try to cover it up and “get over it,” but if we don’t truly forgive, we will be stunted individuals going about our lives and becoming more and more embittered. Forgiveness i essential. It’s also possible.
The Bible doesn’t mince words when it comes to forgiveness. We don’t have to wonder what our heavenly Father thinks about the idea. He’s the author of forgiveness, and we’d do well to follow Hi commands. Matteo 6:14-15 dice: “Se perdonerai gli altri quando peccano contro di te, il Padre tuo che i nei cieli perdonerà anche te. But if you do not forgive others their sins, you, Father, will not forgive your sins. “
Ouch. That stings a bit, doesn’t it? Especially when you’ve been wounded by someone you’ve loved as unconditionally as possible. It sounds like a cruel joke to expect us to just let it go, doesn’t it?
Colossesi 3:13 dice: “Sopporta e perdona tutti i rimpianti che potresti avere contro te stesso. Perdona come il Signore ti ha perdonato. Se conosci Gesù come tuo Signore e Salvatore, sai che sei di natura peccaminosa. If we don’t recognize that nature, we won’t recognize our need for a Savior. We also need to understand and remember the true meaning of God’s love. “Untilwe were still sinners, Chrit died for us” (Romans 5:8). If we truly understand God’s forgiveness, can we really withhold our forgiveness from those who have hurt us?

3. Stop healing your wounds.
Taking care of our wounds with such care can become second nature that we begin to identify only with the wound and not with the life that heals or renews. When something reminds us of our pain, we cure the pain and then only jargon gets over it. It’s almost as if we forget that we, too, need a Savior. We’re so busy saying, “Look at my hurt!” that we forgot to give it to God.
Romans 3:23 says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Sure, I haven’t been unfaithful to my husband physically, but I have committed sins, too. And when we sin, we don’t sin against one person; we also sin against our heavenly Father.
I know how hard thi i. I am profoundly aware of how badly my flesh wants to throw my husband’s sin back in hi face when he gets mad at me for something small. I know how easily I could remind him of hi failures and make sure he knows just how picture-perfect my marital resume i. But such an answer can never be forgiven.
4. Don’t wait until you feel like forgiving.
One of the harder parts of forgiveness i that we don’t always feel like forgiving. The problem i that feelings are often mileading and erratic. I learned a long time ago that you rarely enter into positive action, but you can work your way towards better feelings. You may not want to wake up at five for your morning run, but you do it anyway. Later, you are happy that you put in the extra effort because you feel good and have more energy. There i great satifaction in making a choice to do something that your flesh was yelling at you not to do! You had a feeling.
How do you know you are healing
The effects of forgiveness are different for everyone. Some relationships will be repaired despite the betrayal and others will end up because of it. The key, though, i to make sure you are healing from thi wound. You don’t want to get a knot in your stomach every time you think about thi person, especially if he or she i your spouse.
Here’s one way you can know you have healed from a wound caused by someone else: You cease to feel resentment against your offender. My mentor says, “You know you’ve healed from the hurt that someone else’s actions have caused when you can look back on the situation and it’s just a fact.”
We all make mitakes. We have all done things we regret. We all need forgiveness. And we must all show the same forgiveness to others, not just today, but every day.
Time to forgive.

How to forgive yourself after a relationship?
It’s one thing to be forgiven by your spouse after an affair, but how does one handle it when they are finding it difficult to forgive themselves after an affair. Here i a major scriptural point to consider.
You have to feel God’s forgiveness before you can forgive yourself
Per perdonare te stesso, devi prima sentire il perdono di Dio. If thi i at all out of order in your life, you will find it difficult to truly forgive yourself, especially after an affair.
It’s okay to want to be forgiven
We can give many principles such as forgiveness, but ultimately God has to give man what I call a sense of forgiveness.
I realize that in Chritianity we tend to stay away from the idea of basing our faith on our feelings, and rightfully so. But, that i not what I am suggesting. In all actuality, I am teaching that our faith should be manifested in the fact that we sense God’s forgiveness in our hearts. Thi i actually taught in Hebrews 9:14. In thi passage, God says:
“How much more shall the blood of Chrit, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”
If you will notice, the Bible i teaching us that Chrit died so that our conscience could be purged from the shame and guilt that sin often brings.
Psalm 51 – Make it your textbook
For those struggling with overcoming the shame that often accompanies infidelity, I often refer them to Psalm 51. Thi was actually a song of repentance that David wrote after he had committed adultery with Bathsheeba.
In thi Psalm, David said:
"Have mercy on me, O God, according to your mercy, take away my transgressions according to the abundance of your mercy. Wash me completely from my guilt and cleanse me from my sin."
Then he wrote:
"Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my sins. Create in me a pure heart, O God; and renew a righteous spirit in me."
In the previous two choices, I love the phrases “wash me completely from my iniquity” and “cleanse me from my sin”. I also appreciate David’s prayer that God “renew the righteous spirit within himself.
Through David’s song of repentance, I believe we can also see that God wants us to sense Hi forgiveness. However, sometimes, thi does not necessarily come overnight. And it may take a long time to ask, search, and knock to make the above verses a reality in their life.
Chritianity i a Hospital
Keep in mind that Chritianity i not a medical show, but a hospital for sinners in need. Chrit died because you are a sinner, therefore, He i not all surpried by your need for forgiveness and cleansing. So boldly go before the throne of grace to get the mercy you need now. (Hebrews 4:16)

Marriage i beautiful, but it can be hard, especially when you are dealing with infidelity years after the affair .
So how do you deal with infidelity in a marriage after many years?
If two people love each other enough to overcome infidelity in a marriage, things can be good again. But no doubt it will take some time.
The wounds of infidelity run deep and the victim of adultery will need time to mend and eventually forgive. The adulterer will need time to reflect on their mitakes, and show the remorse necessary for forgiveness to occur.
Coping with infidelity or dealing with infidelity can take months, years, and possibly even decades. The rate of advancement after a relationship varies from marriage to marriage.
Let’s say you’ve done the work with your spouse for coping with adultery , gotten to a place of forgiveness and trust, and are looking to the future through optimitic lenses.
What can you expect when dealing with infidelity in a marriage? What should you avoid after years of infidelity? What can you proactively do to deal with infidelity?
All doesn’t have to be lost after a partner chooses to cheat. It can be fixed, but only thanks to the constant and persistent hard work of both sides.
Every married couple should continue to work on their relationship, but those who have experienced infidelity should take that job even more seriously.
Advice, advice and more advice
With all the information we have access to, we are asking for less and less help.
There are plenty of websites that can tell us what to do after marriage i rocked by adultery, so why go see a professional that will use a lot of the same tactics?
Because that professional i trained to give objective advice on how to handle infidelity in marriage .
Not only are they able to provide objective guidance, but they can also provide a form of accountability for both of those involved.
At each meeting, they can give both sides respect and not judgment.
Thi i no doubt an essential tool directly after infidelity has occurred, but it may be even important in dealing with infidelity years later .
The more time passes, the more reminders and tips you will need to deal with the effects of infidelity.
Se tu e il tuo partner pensate di aver "superato la gobba" e potete farlo, i possibile che vi stiate aprendo a una potenziale caduta.
Your therapit has put a practice in place that your marriage has trusted to sustain itself for some time.
By pulling the plug on that consitent source of non-judgmental advice and guidance, you may find yourself settling back into the old themes of ditrust and resentment.
Thi i not to say that you jargon make it if you’re not seeking help from a therapit; it i just pointing out what a tremendous resource that objective point of view can be to your relationship.
Be aware of your ditrust
If you are the person that was wronged in the affair, no one will blame you if you have the nagging thought of “what if it’s still going on?” It’s natural. It’s a defense mechanim to your scorned heart.
But if you and your partner have worked where you have forgiven them and have shown remorse, you must be very aware of this nagging question on the back of your head.
It will appear from time to time, but you have to do your best to negotiate a way out.
If years have passed and you’ve both accepted the terms of your marriage and what has occurred, you jargon live your life waiting for them to screw up.
As hard as it i, you need to trust them with everything. You have to be open and sensitive and do whatever love requires.
By closing yourself off and questioning their every move, your relationship i no healthier than it was at the time of the affair.
They can be unfaithful again. They can repeat the same crime as before. That’s on them . You jargon control their actions. However, you can show them love, respect, and appreciation.
You can show them that you trust them. If they take advantage of it, then that’s just the type of person they are.
If you feel you can’t get to a point where you can truly trust and believe in your relationship, you have an option … walk away.
You will not find peace in your marriage if you are constantly worried about what your spouse might be doing behind your back.
Contact your partner knowingly
To deal with infidelity, consciously check your husband or wife’s level of happiness in your marriage.
It’s a very real possibility that someone may have cheated because they were mierable with the circumstances of the relationship at that time.
Furthermore, the betrayed person will certainly not be satisfied with the state of their marriage after the scandal.
To avoid future affairs and deceit, have honest conversations every 6 months or every year that take inventory of each other’s satifaction in the relationship.
The last thing you want i to wait for 5 years and then ask each other if you’re happy.
Time usually puts ditance between partners in any relationship; the two partners who have been touched by infidelity will surely have drifted further apart over time if the feelings and emotions remain uncontrolled.
Think of it as a State of the Union address, but for your wedding.
They say that time heals all, but it’s not a given. Any time that i spent together after an emotional or physical affair needs to be handled with care.
Don’t let time go by and hope everything works out.
When dealing with infidelity, you must t ake hold of that time and use it as wiely as possible with your husband or wife.

What you need to know before learning
How to forgive an unfaithful wife
As you continue reading you’re going to be learning exactly what you can do to increase your odds of coming back from thi affair – whether emotional, physical, sexual, or even virtual – stronger than your marriage has ever been.
You can only marry one woman
Unlike any other relationship you have formed in your life (not counting your parents), you had a CHOICE to befriend / date someone / talk to whoever you want … In other words, you have chosen to develop loving feelings for your wife, just as you have chosen to build a trusting bond with your closest friends.
However, the difference between a friendship and a marriage i that there’s only one woman that you can marry. You’re going to have to live with both her perks AND her flaws. There’s a tails-side to every coin.
So what exactly am I saying? Where am I going with thi?
What I’m saying i thi:
You may be tempted to do thisfilled with regret for ever marrying your wife, but the fact of the matter i that everyone makes mitakes, both men and women. So yes, there may be other women out there that wouldn’t cheat (all though fewer and fewer meet that criteria), but they have their own problems that could be just as bad and emotionally traumatizing.
They say that an affair i the the worst thing you can do to the other personand I honestly agree for the most part. But that doesn’t mean that you jargon eventually see an up-side, or at least find a way to recover from it fully.
Who knows, your wife’s infidelity might be just what your marriage needed to kick start itself into full gear! God works in mysterious ways (or fate, if that’s your thing).
Can you forgive your wife?
In all my experiences YES, you can love your wife again with true passion and desire. In my experience it’s entirely possible to learn how to forgive a cheating wife.
Yes, someday you will be able to look back at your wife’s current affair and say that you honestly can forgive her for infidelity. You’ll be able to look her square in the eyes and say that you do NOT hold a grudge against her for cheating. You will completely forgive your cheating spouse.
Learning to forgive a cheating spouse i difficult, but with time it can certainly be done. Healing the pain, and in fact even using it as the starting point for a new marriage, i more than possible.
If you’re a Chritian, then ideally you’ll come to recognize that infidelity and adultery i equal to any other sin, and that your wife’s affair was a weakness, nothing more. The biblical answer, and the golden rule of forgiveness, i that we all have weaknesses and we all make mitakes, yourself included. If you love your wife unconditionally, you’ll be able to come back from it.
I’m not saying you’d ever cheat on your wife, and I’m not saying that adultery in’t grounds to get a divorce, because it certainly IS. What I AM saying i that I’m willing to bet you haven’t always been perfect. Again, I’m not trying to compare anything you’ve ever done to what your wife has done by cheating on you, but none of us can read the future, none of us can say we’re perfect, and in the end, all of us need forgiveness every now and then.
However, you will NEVER forget his infidelity
You will always look back on thi as one of the hardest periods in your life, but again, that doesn’t mean that it’s impossible to learn how to get over her affair, it just means it harder. The old mantra, forgive and forget, can NOT be applied to thi situation.
No matter how hard you try, the experience of thi affair will remain in your mind. I’m sorry. It will take years before you forget how he felt the pain of infidelity, and the memory of it will stay with you forever.
So what do i mean?
What good does it do you for me to let you know that forgetting i likely impossible? Well my hope i that you’ll spend your time focusing on only one goal:
Forgive your wife for treason.
Il perdono viene prima dell’oblio, quindi se un giorno speri di essere completamente libero dalla risposta emotiva causata dal tuo coniuge traditore, concentrati sul perdono piuttosto che dimenticare, "muoverti" o lasciarlo alle spalle.
Forgiving your wife for cheating on an intimate and conscious emotional level should be your TRUE goal and nothing more.
Jeśli wierzysz, że twoje małżeństwo można uratować i ieś gotów zrobić wszystko, co możliwe, aby nauczyć się przebaczać zdradzieckiej żonie i odzyskać swoje małżeństwo, to nadszedł czas, abyś podjął działania na rzecz miłości.
But whatever you choose to do from here, good luck.
