Therapy for Infidelity – how to recover and create a new relationship
Are you dealing with Infidelity after the affair?
When you find that your partner has had an affair this is by far the most painful thing that can happen in a relationship. You may be feeling fear, betrayal, and confusion when you first find out that your partner has been unfaithful. Infidelity often leades to depression.
It is so painful that most people automatically think of ending the marriage.
But wait, there is hope!
Most affairs only last a short time and most couples attempt to reconcile after the affair is over. Many couples do reconcile and develop a relationship that is built on honesty and meeting each other’s most cherished needs. This takes a strong willingness to make the necessary changes in your behavior. The payoffs to this in happiness are immense.
Many of the couples dealing with infidelity that I have worked with never had learned what their partner’s most important needs were nor how to meet those needs. Neither did they know how to identify their own most important emotional needs. When you are aware of each other’se needs and committed to meeting the ones you can, you automatically affair proof your marriage because there will be no reason to look outside the marriage.
Some marriages actually only begin to develop deep connection and intimacy after an affair happens because this is the first time a couple starts to address the needs and problems in the relationship.
