How do you deal with a cheating wife or partner?

Now that is a question that has me giving off a huge sigh everytime someone asks me. Over the years I have come to realize that there is no general rule that can be applied to this situation. I think that there are some things to look at before anything is decided upon to ensure the best possible decision for you and your cheating spouse or partner.

On the fly

  • I think that one of the most important things is not to make any decisions on the fly. Any decision made in haste, especially under this type of circumstance usually ends up being something that you will come to regret. You need to take time off to deal with your own feelings of anger, betrayal and disappointment. These feelings must be handled in order to make way for a somewhat clear thinking process. As clear as it can possibly be under the circumstances.

Forgive

  • This needs to be determined before any decision can be made. Can you forgive the person? Can you really see past this hurt and picture yourselves five years down the road? Can you see yourself opening up, making yourself vulnerable for the possibility of even more hurt and betrayal in the future? If is a definite no...then I would lean towards calling it off. Now remember, I am looking at this from the outside, wtihout the hurt blinding me and without the things that made the relationship work up until then. the good and bad things that have happened that have to factor in when a decision has to be made.

You see, every event of infidelity is unique because the persons involved are unique. So the answer to the question cannot be boiler plated. If the proper communication was initiated somewhere in the begining of the relationship, you would have definite knowledge as to whether infidelity in any form is a deal breaker for the relationship. If you have both determined that it is, then you must follow through. If you do not act accordingly on a deal breaker in a relatonship, it may give an indication that you might accept anything after this. Remember everytime someone cheats they get better at hiding it and dealing with the consequences.

Now you can understand why there cannot be a boiler plated answer for this question. It is not one to be taken lightly and also not hastily. This is a decision that not just affects you but can turn out to be one of your lifes regret. So you must deal with a cheating wife or partner in a way that you remain true to yourself and what you stand for, not on anyone elses say so or experiences, only your own.
