129: Recovering From Infidelity In Your Relationship

Infidelity is unfortunately a huge part of the modern marriage. If we can understand why men and women cheat then we are halfway towards solving the problem. Once a partner has committed physical or emotional infidelity, it is important to learn how to heal the relationship. Listen to today’s show to learn about healing from a cheating spouse or how to avoid it altogether!

In this episode we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • How to heal the broken trust from a cheating spouse.
  • Why men tend to cheat more because of opportunity and women for a larger variety of reasons.
  • How a man can earn back trust and heal the relationship.
  • Why a man’s desire to ‘fix things’ can be detrimental to healing after infidelity.
  • And much more!
