What are the things you need to know and understand to help you fix your marriage after infidelity? What issues, problems and barriers do you need to deal with? And what should you deal with first?
Going through an extramarital affair crisis is never easy for anyone. And what happens after infidelity varies for different couples and depends on the strength of their marriage. Plenty of couples make the decision to end their marriages because of infidelity, but there are just as many couples who stay in the marriage and try to make it work.
But rebuilding a marriage after infidelity is never as simple as deciding to stay. There are a lot of obstacles that you will have to go through and a lot of issues that you and your partner will have to discuss and deal with. You will also need to get over any of your personal barriers that each of you have, as a couple and as individuals, or both.
Most of the time, breaking down these barriers is the hardest part when dealing with extramarital affairs, and most people have trouble identifying the reasons or the barriers that keep them from really fixing the issues they are going through after infidelity.
A great way to do that is by taking some time by yourself to really think about your situation, what you want to happen, and what you need to make it happen. Reflect and make a list of the specific barriers that are holding you back from fully moving forward with your marriage and with your life after infidelity. Make them as specific as possible. This will allow you to pinpoint which areas you need to work on in yourself and you will also be able to realize what you need from your partner and your relationship after infidelity.
