Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Are you and your spouse thinking about finalizing your marriage? Thinking that there is no chance to mend your marriage. What if maybe you could just talk things over and everything would be Okay. There are some steps that could quite possibly help couples to gain a better understanding of this situation. Let's look and see.

1- Define shared goals -- If you both agree that reconciliation is a possibility, it is going to take energy, time and a commitment. Do not make this type of agreement when emotions are stressed and you feel all burnt out. Not Good.

2- Getting Back Trust -- You must give your WORD that there will be no more secrets in this relationship. You must make a serious commitment to each other to positively rebuild your relationship.

3- Talk -- After the first shock is over. You must sit down and talk openly about what happened here. This could be a good time to talk about seeing a marital therapist. They can work wonders for you in the communication department. Talking about therapists. See next step.

4- See A Marriage Counselor -- Make an appointment with a licensed counselor who's trained in marital therapy and experienced in dealing with infidelity. Good. Do not go to one that just wants to breakup the marriage. Not Good.

5- Be Accountable For Your Actions -- If you had the affair, Just say you did. Easy. Out in the open. You know it's not that easy. You'll see. Just be accountable for your actions. If you were the one cheated on, you must keep a level head and move forward with the positive plans of reconciliation.

6- Time -- If you were the one cheated on, you can set the timetable for recovery. The unfaithful one is the one saying “put this all in the past”. Just to cope with his or her guilt. Allow each other enough time to understand and heal.

7- Issues -- Infidelity points to underlying problems in your relationship. Look at your relationship to understand what has happened to the affair. Talk about what you need to do so it won't happen again.

8- Forgive -- This is the hardest part of recovering from an affair for many people. Forgiveness will not come quickly or easily — it may take whole lifetime to forgive.

9- Commit to your future -- Things may be emotionally devastating. But all that happened and future plans you make can make you and your marriage stronger than ever before.

10- Be Thankful -- By the time you both get to this step, you should have a better grip on what you expect from each other. If all things look positive, the answer is to move forward with your new outlook you found in life.
