How To Move On When Your Spouse Has Cheated

If your spouse has cheated on you and you have made the tough decision to end the relationship, the act of moving on is never easy. I think the most important part of a break up or a divorce, especially when infidelity is involved, is to give yourself permission to grieve and cry it out.  And if it has been made clear to you that you have overstayed your welcome in the marriage and your spouse had decided to move on with the person they have been cheating with, this is especially so. You are dealing with the double whammy of betrayal and abandonment, and there is no point in denying the pain. But you can walk through it and move beyond it to something bigger and better; a new vision for your life that had never occurred to you before. Just think, you get to play out life scenario #2. Many people never know what their life scenario #2 would have been. They are just playing out life scenario #1 till the end.

An unfaithful spouse is a major self-esteem destroyer, and unfortunately, your sense of self-worth will not return overnight. To break down whether or not it is the correct decision to divorce a cheating spouse, there are several factors to consider. If your husband or wife has cheated on you once and confesses in an effort to clear the air and bring about positive change in the relationship, I don’t think it is a lost cause. If a spouse has confessed to cheating over a period of time because they were not having their needs met and they wants to take steps to re-build your relationship, I feel that this is also something worth considering.
