Cheating seems to happen in romance relationships at the worst times and when we least expect it. We often sit there in shock after we have found out that a romance partner or spouse has cheated on us. When we are in a distrustful relationship, sometimes the partner who has been cheated on may feel as if it was their fault somehow. However, psychologist  have indicated that when a partner cheats, it is not the other partner’s fault. Someone who cheats would do it regardless of what may have been said or done by you in the past. The questions that arise once a partner has cheated and has been caught are: Are you going to stay in or out of the relationship? Forgiveness, plays a key role in self-healing whether  you decide to forgive but move on or forgive and stay within the relationship.   Answering the following questions have helped individuals who have experienced “cheating” to resolve this dilemma.

  1. Can you forgive him or her?
  2. Can trust be reestablished in the relationship?
  3. Should you forgive him or her?
  4. How can you get the images out of your mind?
  5. Will he or she not cheat on you anymore?
  6. What kinds of signs would you be looking for to confirm he or she is no longer cheating?
  7. What other steps will you take to help mend and solidify the relationship?
