Uncovering My Passion To Save My Marriage After His Infidelity

Uncovering my passion to save my marriage after his infidelity was an almost instantaneous decision that I made.

When my husband and I got married twelve years ago, we both decided that divorce was
not an option and that we would both do all we can to stay together forever
(for better or for worse), just as we promised in those wedding vows.

Of course, like all couples we hoped that our marriage would NEVER be tested by something so
gut-wrenchingly painful and life-altering as adultery by either one of us.

Yet, here I was facing this hurtful reality and knowing that only my passion for my
husband (and hopeful his for me )and the marriage would give us the strength to save the relationship
and move forward together.

Uncovering my passion to save my marriage was only the first step in doing so and it was not easy.
I had to really work at it because adultery is such a terrible blow to the relationship:
It evokes feelings of:

  • Rejection
  • Betrayal
  • Jealousy
  • Anger
  • Resentment

Plus a whole lot of other negative and disempowering emotions.

After my decision to save the marriage I then had to make sure that my husband also felt the same
way and would commit to doing the relationship- repair work that would be required.

Uncovering my passion to save my marriage after his infidelityEven before I forgave the infidelity we began to uncover the passion we knew was still there in the relationship.

The first things he had to do was:

  • End the affair completely( no contact with the other woman
  • Take full responsiblity for the cheating ( no excuses or trying to blame me)

Yes, the relationship obviously was in trouble
but it was his decision to become unfaithful to
the marriage.
