When a marriage or other committed relationship experiences a bout of infidelity, it can be one of the worst forms of betrayal ever. But the experience doesn’t necessarily have to end in divorce. If both parties are committed to making the relationship work, it is possible to rebuild trust and rebound from marital infidelity. This post from Pulse.ng offers some advice for doing just that. One of the first steps to repairing a marriage that has gone through infidelity is that both parties have to be committed to being completely honest with each other from here on out. Both people involved in the relationship have to be open about their needs, their feelings, and how they expect to move forward.
