My husband says that his affair is over but how do I believe him?

Dear Ma’am,

I am married with 2 kids. My husband is having an affair with a woman he has considered his sister for years. The affair has been going on for the past 3-4 years, I got to know only a few months back.

Mine is a love marriage and I trusted my husband a lot. I am finding it very disturbing that he cheated on me. He says he has left her, but never gives his mobile password. I don’t know what to do. Please help me out to come out of this.

Dear lady,

I’m sorry to hear that you had to go through this. The best way to resolve this issue is to consult a couples’ therapist with good experience in helping couples recover from extramarital affairs in a constructive manner.

I’m suggesting a therapist because an incident like this leaves a lot of suppressed emotional trauma for both parties and trust building again requires a lot of work. If you want to repair your marriage, it is essential. A therapist is trained in helping you open communication channels between each other and express yourselves freely in a safe environment. If you try to do this yourself, you’ll end up going around in circles because of the highly charged emotions and not reach anywhere.

And don’t give up hope… There are a lot of couples who have formed a stronger relationship after going through an incident like this! 🙂 Good luck to both of you!


My husband began to cheat on me and now I no longer care – for him, his parents or his extended family

It has been a year since I caught my partner cheating and this is where we are now
