Can You Recover from Infidelity with Lisa Ryan
If you are willing to take ownership for your part and seek counseling, the outcome of recovery is high. Odds improve if the cheater is forthright and comes forward versus being caught in the deception.
There are two steps to recovery:
First, treat recovery like a team sport. Co-author a letter to the 3rd party, saying, “We would no longer like to hear from you, signed Ann and Bob Smith”. Or make a call and say, “We love each other and we’d like you to step aside and help us to preserve our marriage.” It’s a dignified approach that closes things out with grace.
Second, you work on rebuilding the trust through transparency and time. You go above and beyond to show you are trustworthy and appreciative of our relationship with no locks on your devices and complete disclosure.
Your marriage can survive and even in a stronger way if you do the work.
