A relationship requires a lot of effort from both partners, but what happens if one of them is unfaithful to the other person? Can be cheating considered the end of a relationship? How does this affect the bond between two people?
According to a relationship expert, there is a possibility for love to exist in a relationship, even if someone cheated. Jenn Mann, the author of the book “The Relationship Fix” explains that cheating can actually make a relationship stronger if treated right.
At first glance, it seems impossible, who could forgive unfaithfulness? Well, Jenn Mann has a different point of view.
The most important thing that has to be taken into consideration in this matter is if the partners still have the desire to figure out their issues and solve them. They need to analyze their relationship, their mistakes. To find the real reason behind their actions and their problems and to be willing to deal with them.
Of course, there will be a lot of suffering and pain, but in the end, it may be worth it. The couple needs to learn how to be honest, to talk, to listen, to understand. Each one of them has to take responsibility for their actions. Forgiving and forgetting is not an option.
How can you fix a relationship like this?
First of all, be sure that your partner truly wants to come back into your relationship. Understand that no one cheats in a relationship if they don’t have their reasons. If she or he decides to come back, try your best to understand them and not put all the blame on them.
Secondly, there will be a lot of subjects that need to be talked about. Take your time, invest all your energy in these discussions. Learn to listen.
In the end, you might find yourself and your relationship stronger than before. All that’s needed is the desire to repair and compromise.
