Infidelity is such a difficult topic for people to discuss. When a partner has been unfaithful the bottom can drop out of your world in an instant and it feels like there is no light at the end of the tunnel.
What can be even more crushing for the betrayed spouse is the fact that 56% of men and 34% of women who cheat say they were perfectly happy in their relationships.
I don’t think it’s hard to believe that most relationships don’t survive infidelity. Most people are too hurt and angered by the betrayal, they try to make things work but never truly get over it. In the end, the relationship never recovers.
But what if you really do want things to work? What can you do to give your relationship the best chance of surviving?
This info-graphic from Can’t We Just Get Along Counselling outlines the steps the betrayed spouse and the unfaithful spouse need to take after an affair.
