You have a cheating husband and are at a loss on how to fix this heart breaking dilemma. There are a few things at work here that you need to understand and I would like to share them with you. There is a reason why your husband is cheating. I know I’m stating the obvious but not everyone understands the importance of coming to grips with this realization. One of the keys to preventing or stopping your husband from cheating is, understanding why he is cheating or getting ready to have an affair.
Tip # 1 – Stopping A Cheating Husband
Don’t make it easy for him to cheat. There are steps you should take to make it difficult for your husband to cheat. One of them is making sure he knows that you don’t have blind trust. By that I mean you aren’t naive enough to trust that his relationships with other women are on a “we are just friends” basis. It is nearly impossible for a husband and another women to spend a significant amount of time together and not form some type of affection or attraction towards one another. It may not start out that way but it will surely end that way. Don’t give your husband the green light to cheat by allowing him to have unchecked friendly relationships with other women.
Tip # 2 – Stopping A Cheating Husband
Give him good reasons not to cheat. One of the things cheating husbands will say is that the reason they cheated was because their wife pushed them into an affair. I believe in some situations it’s true. I’m not saying the husband isn’t at fault. However, there are things that happen in a relationship that push the other spouse away, such as;
- Inconsistent behavior
- Lack of care or attention to the relationship
- Emotional abuse
If the relationship is going through rough times and a husband feels as though he is being pushed aside or out, he might feel justified in cheating.
To reduce the chances of your husband cheating love him more than you despise him. Make sure he would rather be around you than apart from you. Keep the relationship such that he doesn’t stay away from you just to find peace.
Tip # 3 – Stopping A Cheating Husband
Stay connected to your husband. It’s easy to lose touch with each other as years go by and spouses get used to each other. Love is assumed to be present but is it really. I have heard it said that familiarity breeds content. Are you settling for content or are you striving for better. No relationship is perfect but if you are satisfied with where you are, one of you may grow tired of the same old same old and want a change. To help stop your husband from cheating, never give up trying to improve your emotional and physical connection to your husband. It’s just one more way to make it hard for him to have an affair.
A cheating husband is not what you expected to be confronted with in your marriage. Some women marry the wrong guy and for the most part know what they are getting into. If her husband was a known cheat before the marriage, in reality his wife suspected that he would cheat on her. It doesn’t make it any easier when it actually happens.
