Can Any Romantic Relationship Survive Adultery?

Absolutely, yes a romantic relationship can survive adultery!

The rebuilt relationship may even blossom into a new love affair
with each other and your life together could become more
loving, honest and passionate.

But before any of that positive outcome can take place there are
some extremely painful moments to get through.

The first thing is that the adulterer must stop the affair and sever
all contact with the person they had the affair with.

All contact!

That is non-negotiable as it is the signal that they are prepared to
focus all their attention and energy on repairing the relationship.

Getting From Hello To Forever, Together!

Next, the unfaithful partner must come clean with as much details
about the affair as their partner wants.
If a partner only wants to know that the affair is over then give them
that assurance; however, there are others who might want all the
details, no matter how painful it is for them and you.
You must be completely honest and transparent with them and
yourself.

One thing that the cheater cannot be allowed to do and should
not even try to do is blame their mate for the affair.

After that, the trust rebuilding stage will begin.

An affair is a trust destroyer and only time and scrupulous attention
to the hurt feelings of your betrayed partner will enable you to survive
adultery.

For many couples an adulterous affair is relationship ending, so no
matter the contriteness the offending spouse that will be the outcome.

But for those couples who are willing to do the work required to rebuild
their relationship, there is help.

To those couples, I say do not feel ashamed or pressured into ending
your union if your desire is to save it.

Work together as a couple and get outside counsel when and if you
need it, just make sure that these professionals know that you want to
rebuild your relationship rather than walking a way from it.

    You are so right that a romantic relationship can survive an affair.
    Many couples conveniently forget that love is the basis for their
    union and part of loving another person is forgiving them.
