7 Ways Of Dealing With Infidelity In Marriage.
The question is:
Can A Marriage Survive Infidelity?
Yes, your marriage can survive infidelity. Some years back the same person felt bad whenever a story is told about infidelity, you have probably heard him/her promising never to indulge in such a thing in life and you believed it; now he is the latest victim.
I know how you feel at this time; you feel like throwing in the towel because you can’t stand the shame and the humiliation. All you need now is a divorce.
But do you know that divorce is not the best option? There are so many ways of dealing with infidelity in marriage and I have taken some time to list some of them here for you.
How To Overcome Infidelity In Your Marriage:-
Recently, the attitude of people concerning infidelity has made the subject looks like a toy every spouse or rather every grown-up will someday play with.
They see it as a normal thing. When someone hears that either a wife or the husband indulged in infidelity, it doesn’t create the usual shock to him any longer, the listener just shakes his head and moves on with other things.
However, that does not mean that its negative impact is not felt in the marriage, especially the devastating effect it brings between children, the husband, and the wife.
Cheating doesn’t have a specific time it comes in the marriage; it could come at the earliest time of your marriage, the middle of the marriage. At some time you may feel like leaving the marriage.
However, if you could try dealing with the infidelity in marriage with these steps I listed, you may see your marriage bouncing back and becoming one of the strongest marriages in the world.
Reasons For Infidelity:
Before I go forward, I want us to look at so many reasons why infidelity may happen in the first place; because you must first understand the foundation of a problem before you could know where to start tackling it.
One of the reasons for the rapid growth in infidelity among couples is a lack of patience. People are too desperate to have the answer immediately. There is no more waiting for things to happen naturally.
People want instant gratification, and the advent of technology has helped to quicken up things. Couples now know and want to get fast results in their marriage.
Impact Of Technology On Marriage
Technologies have succeeded in creating great impulse in our marriages and have taken away the quality of being patient; which God has deposited in man.
Infidelity is the main outcome of impatience between couples. Now when there is an unanswered question in a marriage, a partner could go out to look for the answer.
When there is emotional or financial need also, a partner may also go outside to get it, therefore, tearing the marriage apart.
It Can Happen To Anyone:
One important thing to note is that it could happen to anyone dear to us; your sister, your brother, your best friend, your brother-in-law, or your sister-in-law.
In the book “when women cheat” The author said something that interests me. He says “We actually wallow in infidelity- and if we are not currently unfaithful, then we are dreaming about it” Is that true?
Can we prove to be faithful to our spouse? Is everyone dreaming to cheat on their spouse someday?
Maybe you should not answer that question until you are done reading this.
At the time of writing this article, I realized that cheating or infidelity is not just when your spouse sleeps with another love.
Though that looks to be the real cheating; there are so many ways to cheat on your spouse and probably you have never called a spade a spade.
A different form of infidelity is Marriage.
We are going to look at the different forms of infidelity as portrayed by a “psychology today blogger” Michael J. Formica. In his post on The Enlightened Living blog), He said that infidelity is of 3 different forms.
