Can You Get Your Ex Back After Cheating?

couples0010To some people, an affair should be the death of a relationship, but that is extreme and is usually just an emotional response by someone who is hurt, frustrated and can’t see any other solution. It’s also a fairly common reaction from close friends and family.

In truth, most relationships can be healed even after a breakup, and, even after an affair. If both of you are willing to work on your relationship, then trust after an affair can be rebuilt and, instead of a permanent breakup or divorce, you can rebuild your love and desire and end up with a stronger and better relationship. Not because of the affair, but because of the work you’re putting into making your relationship better.

There is usually something wrong in a relationship that causes one partners to stray in the first place. The reason(s) can be almost anything, but is usually something that has been going on for some time, and a lack of effective communication has failed to reconcile the problem.

Fixing The Problem

The purpose of this article is to help you get your ex back and restore trust after you have had an affair, when it is you that is the guilty party. Bear in mind though, in almost every case of a relationship breaking down, both parties are at fault to some extent, it is indeed very seldom that all the blame can attached to only one person, and furthermore, the blame is usually fifty-fifty. But not always.

Restoring trust in any relationships requires an adjustment in attitude and actions and starts with ramping up the level of trust between you as a couple.

This is best achieved by small gestures, it is common to make huge promises or even bigger brash gestures to try and emphasize just how much you have changed and how trustworthy you really are – NOT a good idea.

This sort of thing cannot be maintained for any length of time and all it takes is for one promise to be broken to undo any of the good that has been achieved.

Stay small, but consistent. If you promise to do something, make sure you keep that promise and if it is an ongoing thing, then make sure you keep doing it. Trust has to be earned.

Trust is not the only thing to concentrate on, if you have had an affair, you have had an attitude which allowed you to stray, which most probably has something to do with the fault in your relationship. This fault has to be fixed before your relationship has any chance of getting back on track.

If you continue to neglect the cause of your affair, your relationship will stand little chance of success. But, if you both can fix whatever differences caused you to stray, then your chances of success are much better.

Rebuilding Trust In Your Relationship

Restoring trust in your relationship means fixing the underlying problems. Once your problems are genuinely out of the way, you’ll both have a greater confidence in each other and your trust issues will lose a lot of their importance. Sometimes that means going into couples counseling.

The secret to restoring trust in your relationship lies not in talking about the right things, but in doing the right things.

Remember, one of the biggest things you can do is to make small promises AND keep them. If you promise to take the trash out every evening, do it. And, do it consistently. When you demonstrate that you can be trusted in the small things, a gradual sense of confidence will be realized in the larger picture of your relationship.

Your ex is going to need constant reassurance that you have changed. This means that you are going to need to apologize more than once over time. You will also need to treat the recurring comments about the violation of trust as a matter of course. It is not easy for your ex to forgive your actions. If you want to stay with them, you will need to show patience and understanding.

Guilt Shouldn’t Last Forever

This does not mean that you must feel guilty about your indiscretion forever. Remember that there must have been a fairly large problem in your relationship, but you will have to show a great deal of sympathy for how your ex feels, it will take some time and a commitment from both of you if it is going to work.

Finally, you need to put a positive spin on your misdemeanor. Treat it as an opportunity for both of you to grow as individuals and for your relationship to grow and mature. Just as a bone grows stronger at the place it has been broken, a relationship can improve after an affair.
