Finding out that your man has cheated on you can hit you like an anvil. Your union may be in crisis and, as a result, the marriage will collapse. Research shows that many couples are able to coexist in the face of male infidelity and strengthen their relationship in the process. However, restoring trust in a relationship requires two partners to work as a team towards the same goal - to restore a healthy, loving relationship.

Research also shows that leaving an unhealthy relationship is often in a woman's best interest. Nobody can make this decision for you. However, relationships work best when couples treat each other with love, kindness, and respect.

When is ending a relationship the best option? Basically, when a man repeatedly lends your trust in a way that devalues your relationship, and he shows no signs of remorse or attempts to repair the damage, it may be wise to consider getting out of the relationship. Additionally, if you feel discounted because your partner has a personality disorder and is refusing to seek treatment, then it is worth evaluating your options as well.

Marriage is a partnership. A partnership in which two people work towards the same goal - to be loving, considerate and compassionate towards each other. If your husband refuses to work with you to solve problems in your relationship, there is little you can do. It takes two people to work together to create a relationship, and only one person misbehaves to break it.

Here are some tips to help you deal with the aftermath of betrayal:

Don't seek revenge

A man's betrayal can cause rage. In your condition, your first instinct may be to punish your spouse by humiliating him in front of friends (or on social networks), or to think about having an affair yourself. You may get a temporary sense of gratification from these actions, but they may ultimately work against you, keeping you in a state of anger, rather than focusing on healing and moving on, alone or together.

Weigh everything before you tell your family. They will likely have strong opinions about what you should do - leave or stay. But no one else understands what is happening in your marriage. While you are considering how you will proceed, it is best to maintain confidentiality.

Try to take care of yourself2

After the initial shock has passed, try your best to eat healthy foods, stick to a schedule, sleep regularly, exercise and, yes, have fun.

Avoid Accusations3

Blaming your partner, yourself, or that bitch can't affect anything, it's just wasted energy. Try not to play the victim, as you get bogged down in self-pity. It will only make you feel more helpless about yourself.

Keep your children out of conflict4

This situation is between you and your partner and should not affect your children at all. Unless you and your spouse decide to end the marriage, sharing details about the affair will only make them anxious, make them feel stuck in the middle, and make you side with.

Look for advice5

Don't try to deal with cheating alone. Before making any decisions about whether or not to end your marriage, it is worth talking to a marriage counselor who will be neutral and help you understand exactly what happened. You can ask your partner questions and share your feelings without losing your cool.

An experienced therapist can help you better communicate and handle feelings of guilt, shame, and anything else you may be experiencing. If you decide to end your marriage, you will know that you tried your best.

Think it over before breaking up6

If you suspect this affair is likely to end your marriage, consider practical questions such as where you will live, whether you have sufficient funds to pay for basic necessities, and if you have children, consider a custody agreement. You may also consider asking your partner to get tested for sexually transmitted diseases, as well as to check yourself if you have had sex during or after your husband's romance.

Accept it7

Male infidelity is one of the hardest problems you can face in your marriage, but that doesn't always mean it's over. As you work through time, it will become clear how to move forward to begin the next phase of your life, together or apart.
