Is your Marriage or Relationship in Trouble?
Have you lost hope in your relationship?
Dealing with Intimacy issues, Infidelity or Communication struggles ?
It is never easy to face marital problems and deal with the pain and wounds that have been inflicted. But if couples are willing to work through it, and regain their love and respect for each other, research has shown that they can usually restore the marriage and be happier than before.
Infidelity can shatter even the strongest relationship, leaving behind feelings of betrayal, guilt, and anger. For the one-quarter of married couples who have suffered this breach of loyalty, according to the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, overcoming those feelings can be extremely difficult. But with the support of family, friends, a good therapist, and each other, it is possible for a couple to put the cloud of an affair behind them, and in some cases, emerge as a stronger unit.
There are many different reasons why someone might have an affair, Sometimes it is purely a case of bad judgment. More commonly, it's a search for an emotional connection -- wanting someone to pay attention to you, flatter you, be attracted to you and at times a symptom in your relationship struggles. Whatever the reason for the affair, the effect infidelity has on a relationship is devastating for the whole family.
"Nothing rocks a person's sense of self, trust, and marriage more than infidelity," says Weiner-Davis, author of The Sex-Starved Marriage. "Infidelity leaves people questioning their sanity, as well as everything they believe to be true about their spouse, and about the viability of their marriage. Infidelity is crippling." People find themselves crying a lot, not being able to concentrate, being upset, and feeling depressed.
"These are all of the initial emotions that go with the discovery of the betrayal," Weiner-Davis tells WebMD. "However, emotions change over time."
