Couples Therapy | What to Do When You Find Out Your Partner has Been Cheating…
One of the worst experiences that one can find out about their partner is that they have been cheating on them . The feelings that you may experience are shock , rage, sadness , or hopelessness. You often don’t know what to do or who to confide in. Once you have talked to your partner and established that an cheating has occurred, the first thing you need to do is decide if you want to stay in the relationship. You also need to find out if your partner wants to stay in the relationship. If they do, then they need to be willing to end the relationship they are having if it still is going on.
The second thing you need to do is find out if your partner is willing to attend couple’s counseling with you. Because there are so many strong feelings , it is vital that you seek professional help to guide you through the process of healing your relationship so that you can begin to build trust again . It is possible to have an even better relationship than before once you have explored the reasons the cheating occurred . If your partner is willing to do the hard work of healing from this , then you can find the love and connection you once shared again.
