You caught your husband/wife cheating. Now what? You have two options. Leave or stay.I hate to boil it down to such a simplistic statement because I recognize the frustration, confrontation, anger, disappointment, hurt, fear and even sometimes violence that results. The emotions of being betrayed are intense and heart wrenching. What follows discovery of the cheating is either an admission of guilt or denial of same; then there is the blame game. Or making light of a serious situation. Or remorse and apologies followed by useless promises. No matter how you look at it, cheating causes marital trouble.
But here’s the big punch: I am not just talking about cheating as being extra marital sex, adultery, affairs, or romances. In addition to sex cheating, I am also talking about financial cheating; food cheating; chores cheating; gambling cheating; emotional cheating; alcohol or drugs cheating. Think about it for a minute. Some marriages have more than one!
These many faces of cheating can have serious and disastrous effects on a marriage. Things like financial ruin,broken trust, abandonment, domestic violence.
If you find yourself to be the victim of a cheater, like I said before, you can either leave or stay. If you stay, hope for change. If you leave, your life is then under your control.
