Infidelity is disgusting and has wrecked families and altered generations from the beginning of time. Some things have gotten better in our advanced society but marital commitment is not one of them. I have seen time and time again, families torn apart as a result of selfish behavior by a cheating spouse. Sure, everyone has had to fight the temptation to cheat if you have been married long enough. Hopefully, you have had the power to resist. If you or your spouse has fallen into the lust trap, here are three reasons you can hang your hat on regarding overcoming infidelity.
3 Reasons Why Infidelity Can Be Overcome
Reason 1 – Love is more powerful than bitterness. If you actually loved your spouse prior to the affair, you will be more likely to stay together. You see, love has a strange way of melting away bitterness and resentment. Love is not just a feeling but an action. You can choose to hate your spouse for cheating or decide to forgive and try to move forward together. It’s not easy to love someone who has hurt you so bad, but you can.
Reason 2 – It’s been done millions of times before. If every couple dealing with infidelity documented their road to success, we could have a blueprint to resolving infidelity. Unfortunately each case is unique and thus has to be overcome accordingly. It’s not that you can’t walk the same path as others and by all means you should find out from others how they made it. The fact of the matter is though that you have a good chance to overcome infidelity in your marriage.
Reason 3 – You know what it takes to get your marriage healed. No one knows better than you what it will take to right the wrong in your marriage. You have keen insight into your spouse’s heart as well as yours. Fixing the broken and crushed hearts is not scientific or even complicated. If you and your spouse humble yourselves and commit to trying to work things out, your marriage can be healed.
Infidelity is a beast, no doubt. It’s ugly, painful and crippling to your life and marriage. If you find yourself in the beginning stages of working through infidelity, keep at it. The quicker you figure out what you need to get over this obstacle the sooner your pain will slowly fade away and be replaced with love again. Better days are ahead so hang in there.
