What is a definition of infidelity? Are there any steps to take in dealing with infidelity? In simple language you or your partner has slept with someone else. It is a breach of the trust between you either spoken or unspoken.

It is likely that excuses will be made usually revolving around the use of alcohol but there will be other reasons underneath. Find out what those reasons might be and you are part way there to finding a potential resolution.

How to deal with Infidelity

Regrettably this is one of the primary causes of a relationship breaking up. Trust is broken. If there has been an unfaithful partner then it may be felt that faith in them has been broken. Trust is critical for a relationship to last any length of time and if it is breached then there might be a feeling it can never return. Our partner might have many favorable attributes but might it prove difficult to forgive and forget?

Finding a method of trusting again has got to be the single concern when dealing with an affair. There is no doubt that you will ask can I trust or will you do it again? Should you make an effort and start again if this is going to happen again? This sort of activity can dent your confidence and it can often be a problem to get it back. A couple may have found ways of coping with arguments or other potential problems in their relationship but broken trust is often a hard one to deal with.

There has to be no doubt that infidelity is a betrayal. The bonds between you have been stretched. If your relationship is to survive and if you are to have any prospect of moving on together, then this must be dealt with. If just one of you carries on with bitterness and recriminations then there will be little likelihood of surviving this. It will be impossible to get over it, even if both of you want to carry on, if there is no return to trust.

How to survive infidelity

Well just how do you even start to try and resolve this?Some find it simpler to try and avoid blame and accuse the other partner of making them have the affair in the first place. There is no getting around the fact that the blameworthy party has to accept it and stop making excuses. There has to be consultation about this between you both and apologies have to be made about the situation the relationship is in as a result of that partners actions.

This can be one of the biggest moves made in the process of getting back together. If you were the one cheated upon then it will help you to start to deal with the infidelity particularly if it comes before the excuses. There is such an effect when an apology is made early on but if left the air can sour beyond belief and excuses will provoke more antipathy You will find that acceptance of blame and early apologies are one of the many ways to get back together after an affair.
