How to move on in the relationship after my boyfriend cheated on me.

Answered 1 year ago

I found out my boyfriend has been cheating on me. It’s has broken my heart but I have chosen to stay. He has promised to work on our relationship and giving his all to making us work and I can already see a healthier relationship blooming. However I am just so hurt and angry still. He knows I haven’t forgiven him and I won’t for a very long time but I do want to work on getting over the cheating. I love him so much and even though he has made an awful mistake I know he loves me too and he deeply regrets his decisions. Does anyone have any tips of getting over the heartbreak of cheating and moving on in the relationship? Also how my partner can earn my trust back? Even though this might be a mistake I have chosen to stay, I know it’s going to be hard but I want my partner and I to try our hardest to make it work.

Most men (not all) can’t help themselves. It does not mean he loves you less it is just the way they are. I think the circumstances have a lot to do it with it. If he was out looking for it then leave if it was a one off encounter then you can work on it together but if it was emotional then you have to question his commitment to the marriage.

It’s not forgiving that is the difficult part, it’s the forgetting.

I have had a relationship that has been filled with infidelity. In my experience, men don’t change. Leave while you can. The next time things get hard he’ll be at it again.

I would start looking after your own financial future now. Start putting money aside. The counselling is a good suggestion, but make sure you protect your own future.
I would not have children with him either.
Cheating is a pattern of behaviour that they find very hard to change. And there are always temptations.

A excellent podcast is Healing Broken Trust. I have found it very practical. Also Esther Perel. Good luck. I’ve been where you are now ❤️
