Can couples recover from an affair?

first_img Tweet Sharing is caring! Share First the question of why the person cheated needs to be answered? If the cheating is part of a sexual addiction, recovery is difficult.  People also need to recognize the health dangers of this behavior. Some couples are known to have agreements that condone multiple sexual partners.  This raises the question about why they are a committed couple in the first place. Some couples proceed through life “trolling” while others like to “chum” for sharks.  In either case these behaviors not only carry a health risk, but they also carry the risk of a chemical bond being created with another person. Studies on brain chemistry and hormonal responses support the notion that the early courtship period, years 1-3, are bolstered with the ignition of heated biochemical reactions.  These reactions, much like the brain’s response to chocolate, create a biochemical glue that supports a couple’s early years. After several years, the relationship needs more than just chemistry to survive.  If no mutual respect has developed, or the relationship doesn’t have any other dimensions,  the relationship will most likely fail.  Without a strong respect and common ground, then no “glue” exists, except common history, to hold the relationship together while work is done to repair it. And be assured this repair  takes focus and hard work. However, if a person has an addiction to the biochemical reactions, then it is a good bet that further acts of cheating will follow. Recovering a relationship from infidelity, or simply recovering from being victimized by a cheater takes time.  If a couple decides to repair their relationship then the single most important thing to focus on is a persons actions.  If a person has been cheated on, and they are willing to move past it and repair the relationship, then the real test of a  person is their credibility.  Credibility never developed out of talking.  It only develops out of actions that support one’s verbal intentions.  If the cheater is unable to overcompensate for a period of time, by being overly accountable for their actions, then the credibility that is necessary to repair the broken trust will not develop. Without this trust, no respect develops, and the “glue” necessary fails to lend itself to the repair of the relationship.  SAVVY Male 60 Views   one commentcenter_img LifestyleRelationships Can couples recover from an affair? by: – July 13, 2011 Share Sharelast_img read more
