For many, the response to infidelity is a no-brainer—kick ‘em to the curb. But if want to reconcile despite being betrayed, read on, because infidelity can be overcome.
Some people just can’t accept the idea of forgiving a cheating spouse, but you never know how you’ll react to that situation until it happens to you. Most people say that infidelity means “game over,” but once it happens many people change their mind and become willing to forgive.
And of course, it is. But when you’re faced with the consequences of ending a marriage—like weekends without the kids, less money, a smaller house, a lower standard of living, the prospect of dating again, and tearing up years of photos—many people can’t go there. As unacceptable as infidelity is, for many people it’s worth it to try to reconcile rather than divorce and face that nightmare too. In other words, just because you want to stick with a cheating partner does not mean you’re a mentally deranged masochist.
But close to 50% of marriages are infected with infidelity at some point. Many of those marriages heal and people reconcile.
We unsuccessfully went to marriage counseling. I wanted to make things work but didn’t know where to turn. I found Mort’s program on the internet. I liked the alternative approach to counseling. Overall it has been a steady improvement.
