For a marriage to move past a cheating spouse? 


Has anyone ever cheated or been cheated on and have a stronger relationship in the end? If so... What helped? Counseling?

    Everyone that I know, personally, never worked through it. That's not saying it can not be done, but it won't be easy. It'll take a lot of drive, counseling, and love to work past it.

    Yes. I cheated and we are now better and stronger. What helped was more communication between us and him getting the help he needed for his mental problems.

    I would have to do a Lorana Bobit if my dh ever cheated, so I would say no it would probably not be much fun after that.

    I have heard of couples working through it, but it wouldn't work for my husband or me.

    Every one is different, but I know I couldn't. And counseling should start asap.

    I couldn't move past it. I moved and I couldn't be happier. I couldn't get the image of what he did out of my mind. I was totally and utterly betrayed. I was disgusted. I couldn't have sex with him.

    Yes I think it is. So long as it's not thrown in someone's face and you agree it's in the past. No, I've never been cheated on and worked it out.

    My dh cheated and we've been working through it. It's been a few years but I'm still emotional about it. I don't think this is going to work much longer. I don't love him like I once did. It's hard to be in love with someone who betrayed you and hurt you.
