Relationship Advice about Infidelity

Infidelity is one of the most heart-wrenching problems a marriage can face because it shakes the base of trust on which relationships are built. However, it is not inevitable that all couples divorce after such an event. It is natural that couples have a hard time to re-connect and re-build trust that they lost as a result of one partner’s infidelity. Working together with a relationship advice counselor, many couples find the power they need to heal and move forward in their marriage.

The act of ‘cheating’ may take many forms, and each couple has their own definition of when the line is crossed. One on end of the spectrum, some partners consider flirtatious behavior or looking at pornography as stepping outside the bounds of their marriage. Others consider an emotional connection with another person to be damaging to the marriage. Most everyone would agree that an attraction to another person leading to sexual relations constitutes infidelity. The bottom line, however, in all these situations is that one partner engages in secret behavior that compels them to lie and be deceptive.

A relationship advice counselor can help bridge that gaping hole in trust and communication caused by the affair. While the offended partner needs to express their feelings of insecurity and hurt, often a counselor will move quickly through the details of the infidelity. Dwelling too long on the details will only instill an increased sense of blame and continued resentment. Instead, couples seeking help as a result of one partner breaching trust need to look forward and learn how to re-connect.

Re-building trust is not easy, but a god relationship expert can guide a hurting couple through the process. Each partner will need to learn how to express emotions in a manner that is both healthy and constructive. A counselor may suggest some ground rules that couples can use for communicating during intense emotional times.

These rules may include:

Discuss only one problem at a time. While it might seem that all your problems are inter-connected, don’t let the conversation escalate by tackling them all at once.

Own your perspective. Avoid getting caught in a blame game by starting your sentences with the phrase, “I feel.”

Be specific. Move the conversation forward by avoiding over-generalizations like “always” and “never.” Give concrete examples instead of vague complaints to show your perspective.

Take a time out. If the conversation gets too intense and you are having trouble staying in control of your reactions, it’s OK to take a break. Just tell your partner that you need a moment to walk around and compose yourself.

A relationship advice expert acts as a neutral party and can help both marriage partners feel safe in expressing themselves without needing to employ ‘power plays’ or using anger to have their perspective heard. The counseling environment promotes open communication and problem solving that can help re-build a sense of emotional intimacy between marital partners. When a couple can re-connect emotionally, with the help of a good coach, they are one step closer to regaining their physical connection.

It’s important to realize that inevitably people’s relationships will change after divorce. This is especially true of how you relate with family members of your ex. In some ways, the relationships that do fall away easily were likely not strong sources of support for you in any case. View it as an opportunity to find out who you can truly count on, through even the tough times, rather than feeling a false sense of security by having a large stable of fair-weather friends.The biggest thing in marriage besides love, is honesty and respect. This guy is giving a patch job, while what you
really need is a brand new way of doing things. I new way to relate, and a new way of living your own life and how you percieve things. If both aren't willing to eventually do this, and work together, then there isn't much hope. One person can go to save the marriage with a new approach and lots of delving into maritaul self help type books, by the more well renowned trusted authors. In the end though you are bringing them around to the ultimate goal of working it out together. Lots of maritual therapy should follow. lol This is what saved my marriage.

You are right!re-building trust is not easy;it takes time. If you have broken the trust of your beloved one expect that you will no longer gain his/her trust as before.

Before doing some actions you should think the consequences that will take over. Regrets will always in the end and it's the saddest part of committing mistakes.

Mistakes can be corrected yes sure it will but remember that once you commit mistake it will always be remembered.

Anyways your advices are all right. It's up to those couple to follow this one. Thanks for making this post a very interesting one.

Our marriage lacked understanding, it was like every normal marriage as long as I didn't say anything that my husband disagreed with or win an argument. Am always trying to know the ins and outs of his life as his wife, and it turned into a huge blow-out. Our divorce wasn't really about our lack of understanding according to my therapist, it was as a result of a spiritual separation. She introduced me to DR OGUDUGU {greatogudugu@gmail.com} for spiritual reconciliation/understanding, proper healing and cleansing of wounds left my husband. My therapist was so honest to me and never wanted to waste my time, she saw that I have been living in pain with my devastating marriage and my heart has ached for years. I was in dire need of permanent solution from DR OGUDUGU after he assured me of smooth and easy result within 48hours immediately the spell is done. Like the honest man he is, Doc. proved my therapist right and brought back my husband exactly the way I wanted. My time with DR OGUDUGU was so magical, I never know anyone has the power to unit a broken home and heal a broken heart. Thanks to my therapist {Monica} and DR OGUDUGU {Email: greatogudugu@gmail.com...Website: http://greatdrogudugusolutiontemple.webs.com/ or call him on WHATSAPP: +2348055304321} for making us a better couple and example to a younger generation.
