My partner had an affair and I am heartbroken.
What do I do now?
When your partner has an affair, and you find out about it, your life feels like it has shattered into a million pieces.
Most people would tell you to leave the relationship and move on. Some will tell you to work it out. The truth is, it is up to you, and only you will know if you will be able to forgive your partner and continue in the relationship.
If you both decide to stay and work it out, there is much work to be done on both sides. Couples coaching, and individual coaching will definitely help you get back on track. The first thing to do is to have an open, honest conversation with your partner and let them know your feelings.
There are many reasons that people cheat on their partners, and some of them are listed in the attached blog.
If you decide that you can’t forgive the other person’s transgression, then it is time to leave the relationship and move on. Either way, it is about what behaviours you will or will not accept.
