Do NOT Lose Your Pride!
When your spouse is cheating on you, the absolute worst thing you can do is forsake your pride. Many woman think that if they sink low enough, they’ll get their husband back.
- You should never beg for your husband to come back
- You should never let your husband convince you it’s your fault
- You should never let your husband see how much his affair affects you (at least for now)
- You should never blame yourself
- You should never “explode” on your husband
Listen, affairs are life changing, and the way that you handle your husband’s infidelity will have a huge impact on whether or not your relationship will ever recover. The only way to keep your husband from cheating on you AGAIN is to make sure that you keep your pride.
Do NOT Force Forgiveness
Many women (and men) react to an affair with rage and anger. Many times, especially if your husband is not very dominant, you can actually MAKE him apologize to you.
Furthermore, many times you will feel pressured to heal the relationship as quickly as possible.
Both of these situations should be avoided like the plague. You NEVER want to force the affair recovery process. The secret to forgiving your cheating husband?
Patience! Patience is the secret ingredient to a long, loyal marriage after your husband has cheated.
Do NOT Lie About Forgiveness
If you learn nothing else from this entire article (Hey I tried, didn’t I?) then you should at least learn this:
NEVER say you’ve forgiven your husband when deep down you actually haven’t.
Many women feel that the sooner they let their husband’s know they’ve been forgiven, the sooner the relationship can get back to normal. This is the exact OPPOSITE of what you should be doing. Believe me, you’ll know when you’ve forgiven your husband. If you tell him he’s forgiven before you’ve actually gotten over the affair, then you’re actually working backwards.
The quickest way to forgive a cheating husband is to let it flow naturally. Believe me, with a good plan and a bit of time, it’s not impossible to forgive your husband. I know it seems absolutely out of reach right now, but really and truly listen to me:
Affair recovery is a LONG process. It takes time to work through the pain.
However, one of the best ways that’s proven to make difference in recovery rate is having a plan for you and your spouse.
I highly suggest taking some time to sit down with your husband and talk about how you both want to recover from the affair. This is what I recommend:
