There are many kinds of infidelity. It can feel bad when a partner is unfaithful whether it is physical or emotional, but you can survive it. You can end the relationship or you can stay and try to work it out but this is going to take a lot of strength. You may or may not be able to deal with the feelings of resentment you feel toward your partner. It may be too hard to trust them again.
- If cheated on, remember that it is not on you. Invest yourself in hobbies, activities, and friendly support networks to keep your self esteem up
- The affair isn’t what causes breakups, it’s lying. Look into marriage counselors to help if you want to keep going
- Science shows that cheaters are likely to repeat, and there may even be a gene that points to a likelihood of cheating
“The most important thing to remember as you process the pain is that you don’t need to make any immediate decisions.”
